School Location

Banting and Best School / Sherwood School is located in the well-established southeastern neighborhood of Ogden. It serves the communities of Lynnwood and Riverbend as well as Ogden. We continue to establish ourselves as a campus school setting which includes Banting and Best School (Kindergarten to Grade 4) and Sherwood School (Grade 5 to 9). Our students have always proceeded to Sherwood for Grades 5 to 9 but because we now share philosophy, common student expectations and a similar approach to teaching and learning the movement from one school site to another is seamless rather than abrupt. The Sherwood building is just across the parking lot and the playing fields are shared. Our students can access either Central Memorial or Western Canada for High School.

About the School

The school is situated on a very large green space that is 14.36 acres in size. It was built in 1980 and opened on May 14, 1981. Banting and Best/Sherwood is one of a very few campus schools within the CBE. The children enjoy our large creative playground and extensive open playing fields. In our school relationships are foremost. We have a core of dedicated staff, families and community members who believe that we are "close knit, caring, enthusiastic, friendlyand unique" and are focused on what is best for kids. Our campus school is an ideal environment to develop good citizenship, successful learners and resiliency.
