Welcome to Dr. Gordon Townsend School

Dr. Gordon Townsend School is a unique setting school in the Alberta Children’s Hospital. The student population is comprised of young people aged 5-19. These students are continuously admitted and discharged for their significant medical conditions by the medical teams at the ACH. Students are admitted to the various programs at our school through our partners, Alberta Health Services. The school is on the CBE modified calendar to meet the various needs of the young people at the ACH. Each of the students remain connected to their origin school and will transition back to this school or another appropriate placement as soon as they are medically able or have completed their admission.
