Welcome to New Horizons School

New Horizons School is a K-9 public charter school that enables academically gifted students to achieve excellence in an environment that supports the students’ unique intellectual, social and emotional needs. Established in 1995, New Horizons is Alberta’s oldest charter school.

It is a place where gifted learners can be challenged and learn with like minded peers.

New Horizons School is located  in Sherwood Park, Alberta and serves the needs of gifted learners from Strathcona County and other communities in the Capital Region including Edmonton.
