School Location

G. W. Skene School is located in the southeast community of Penbrooke Meadows. In addition to receiving students living within our Penbrooke Meadows boundary, approximately 150 students are bussed from the community of Applewood. Our school is unique in that we are a Division II school having only students in Grades 4 - 6. Students in Kindergarten and Grades 1 - 3 attend James Short Memorial School located on the adjoining field. Students move from G. W. Skene to Ernest Morrow School for Grades 7 to 9 and to Forest Lawn High School. Our students bring a rich diversity to our school community with approximately 60% of our students having English as a second language represented by 18 different different languages.
