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.


At Coalhurst Elementary School we believe each student deserves an educational experience where they feel welcomed; they belong; they receive a quality education; and, where each student matters and contributes to the learning environment. We are committed to creating an atmosphere where all students are given the chance to experience life in a way that is meaningful to them and have equal opportunity to learn and grow.
