Coalhurst Elementary School is located in the Town of Coalhurst, Alberta. The town is situated approximately three miles north the Lethbridge city limits. Because of its proximity, it has shown steady growth in its population (recently acquiring "Town" status). Some new residents have chosen the smaller town setting that Coalhurst offers, while continuing to work in Lethbridge. To a degree it is a "bedroom community." Most have a genuine sense of community though, and demonstrate it by becoming involved in community activities and supporting local businesses. The result is an active community seeking to keep pace with its growth and prosperity. As well as serving the town, Coalhurst educates students from the Village of Monarch and the rural areas surrounding both Coalhurst and Monarch. The Regional transportation system provides services (in conjunction with the needs of Coalhurst High) on three rural routes.




Success for Every Child


Coalhurst Elementary School is a child-focused team committed to educate, challenge, and encourage students to reach their potential.


CES operates on the philosophy that all students have the right to learn and be safe. Each student must be in a school climate that is satisfying and productive. Home and school must share the responsibility for teaching acceptable behaviour. By working together we can ensure positive student conduct.
