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.

Glamorgan is situated in a beautiful, well-established, active south west community. The school was built in 1958 and is the Traditional Learning Centre for Area IV.

We serve 653 students, ranging from Kindergarten to Grade 9 in the Traditional Learning Centre program of choice.

We value the diverse needs of all learners and provide flexible groupings to meet their needs. We are involved with the International Bureau in welcoming students from around the world to share our learning experiences. As the TLC program concludes at the end of Grade 9, our students move on to their designated community high school, or a high school within Area IV offering Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate programming.

About the School

Our school was built in 1958 and is fully handicap accessible. It contains 28 classrooms of both open and closed designs, a two station gymnasium, a large centrally located learning commons, science room, music room and creative playground.

The school also has 48 Mac and PC laptops on mobile carts with wireless capacity for student use. Each classroom has a SMART Board and the staff is versed in Smart technology to support learning.
