school profiles

Please note | we’re building a new interactive mapping tool to make it easier to find schools using a familiar web interface, and will no longer be using the maps on this page. Because of that, these interactive maps show the boundaries for the 2013-14 school year, and may not be accurate for the 2014-15 school year. For current information, please refer to the “find a school by address” tool to find your designated school, see the list of schools by residential district and grade, or visit the school profile of the school you’re interested in to see the walk zone map in PDF. Thanks for your understanding, and we look forward to sharing our new site with you soon.

About the School

The school was built in 1980 and is situated on 3.11 acres. The school has 11 classrooms and 10 relocatables, a gymnasium, a stage and a multimedia centre. The school is located in the northeast community of Whitehorn. It is one of two public elementary schools serving the community of Whitehorn. Students from Chief Justice Milvain School move on to Annie Gale School for Grades 7 to 9 and then on to either Lester B. Pearson or James Fowler for High School. At present, apart from the students from the community, we also have students from Coral Springs and Taradale, who are bused to Chief Justice Milvain. Starting in the Fall, 2013, a TLC program (Kindergarten to grade 4) was added to the school.

About School Name

The school was named after Chief Justice Milvain (1904-1993). The Honorable James Valentine Hogarth Milvain became a judge of the Alberta Supreme Court in 1959 and Chief Justice of this court in 1968. In 1979, he retired at the mandatory 75 years.

On May 29, 1979, he received the honorary doctorate of law degree from the University of Alberta. Chief Justice Milvain passed away in the fall of 1993, only a few months after attending the ten-year reunion of the school.
