About the School

Stanley Jones School was built in 1913 and is situated on 5.39 acres. This beautiful building is located on the corner of 8th Avenue and 6th Street northeast on the ridge above the river overlooking the downtown core.

The school has 26 classrooms, a library, music room, and large gymnasium. It is an 88-year-old building that has been honoured with a municipal commemorative plaque. There is an interesting and informative plaque located by the doors on 8th Avenue. The building is three stories high and made primarily of old sandstone (hauled in by horse and wagon from the Shaganappi area in northwest Calgary ) and distinguished by its silver cupola and flagpole. The school underwent renovations in the early sixties, having a junior high-sized gymnasium and two classrooms added to its structure. A variety of other renovations have been carried out over the years; however, the character of the building has been maintained. It is a clean, well-cared-for building with approximately 20 self-contained classrooms. There are large windows in each classroom, and the hallways are spacious. A warm, caring environment prevails throughout the building.

Adding to its physical character is the connection the building has with all Calgarians. Many of our students over the years have had both parents and grandparents who also attended the school. The school has a long history with local Calgarians.
