Connect Golden Hills School Division
What makes our schools really incredible?

Golden Hills School Division encompasses a vast geographical area across rural mid-eastern Alberta. We value our diverse environments and the communities we are part of that are rich with culture and educational opportunities. But what makes our schools really incredible? Our students are inspired by outstanding teachers and our international students welcomed with open arms. Our dormitory leaders and homestay parents nurture and encourage students and help make their residence both a place they can call home and a sanctuary where they can relax and study. Home is where the heart is and our students are always at home at Golden Hills International.
