Dates of existence



Cromdale School was the only permanent school that opened in the 1930s following the Great Depression. Edmonton Public Schools prided itself on all products used to construct the school being sourced from Edmonton businesses making construction possible. In 1987, the school was leased to the Edmonton Immigrant Association to promote multi-cultural education and orientation classes for new Canadians. Named after the residential neighborhood that it was constructed in, Cromdale means crooked valley in Scottish and is also a place in Scotland.
