Vermilion Elementary School is a community school located in a rural community that is served by a number of industries including agriculture, post secondary education (Lakeland College) and the oilfield. The community has maintained its population at a stable rate, with little increases or decline. We offer an elementary school program from K to 6 (playschool is also housed within our building) with two to three classrooms of each grade. Our student population has held steady over the last two years and we foresee growth over the next few years. The staff consists of administrators, teachers, educational assistants, administrative assistants, and a librarian, all with the common goal of supporting student in their success. Parent and community volunteers are very active within Vermilion Elementary School.
