École Plamondon School, part of the Northern Lights Public Schools, is located in the small, rural hamlet of Plamondon, Alberta. Plamondon is situated 30 kilometers northwest of Lac La Biche, and 200 kilometers north of Edmonton.

École Plamondon School is an amazing Pre-K-12 school in the hamlet of Plamondon. We celebrate many cultures in our community: Francophone, Russian-Old Believers, Metis, First Nations, and Ukrainian, to name a few. Although we are a small school, we have a big heart. Our staff, students, and community provide important voices in our decision-making and goal-setting. We value excellence and strive to be the best we can be - individually and collectively. Students are expected to demonstrate respect and sensitivity to others and to pursue excellence in academic and extracurricular programs. A dedicated staff works closely with students to assist them in reaching their goals.
We acknowledge that our learning community rests on the lands of Treaty 6, the traditional meeting grounds, gathering place, and travelling route of the Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Metis, Dene, and Nakota Sioux. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries and we hope that we are able to learn from the teachings of all our cultural ancestries to bring together all people in our school as a respectful, well informed, caring community that accepts all people for who they are as individuals, regardless of their personal beliefs.
Our vision at École Plamondon School is to graduate students who value multiculturalism, community, honesty, commitment and work ethic and who are caring, confident, respectful and creative. Our students value inquiry and recognize their personal worth in their desire to contribute to the local, Canadian and world community.
