Administrative history

Named after the residential neighbourhood it was constructed in, which was named after Reverend David George McQueen (1854-1930), a minister who came to Edmonton in 1887 to lead the Presbyterian congregation. In 1912, the landmark First Presbyterian Church was opened and Rev. McQueen became moderator of the general assembly of the Presbyterian church. The McQueen School building was purchased from Edmonton Public School Board in 2001 by the Edmonton Society for Christian Education (Edmonton Christian Schools). The School was demolished in 2021.
