About Our School

Located in the inner city community of Hillhurst, Queen Elizabeth School was built in 1957 and is situated on three acres with a large playing field and creative playground. We are located directly to the south of the junior/senior high school of the same name and enjoy a mutually positive relationship with the secondary school, which many of our students attend following grade six.
