Dates of existence



Additions to the school were added in 1950, 1955 and 1963. A temporary Delton School was in operation in 1912, located at 82 Street and 118 Avenue.
Named after the residential district that it was constructed in, Delton was named after Edward Delegare “Del” Grierson. Grierson came to Edmonton in the 1890s while working on the Canadian Pacific railway and went on to acquire property along Jasper Avenue, including the old Alberta Hotel (no longer in existence). In the early 1900s Grierson served a number of terms on Edmonton’s City Council.
