Pigeon Lake Regional School currently serves 250 students in Grades 7 - 12. Most of the school's students are drawn from a vast attendance area that includes the hamlet of Falun, the lake community around Pigeon Lake, and the four bands of Maskwacis. The school receives grade 7 students from the Falun, Lakedell, Mimiw Sakahikan and Pipestone Schools.
In spite of its small size, the school offers a full range of academic courses to enable students to complete Alberta Education Diploma, Knowledge and Employability Certificate programs and High School Completion Certificate programs. In addition, we offer a wide range of option programs including art, drama, foods, fashions, construction, computers, photography, design studies, cosmetology, spring and fall sports.
Our school also offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities including basketball teams, volleyball teams, cross country running, track and field, golf, badminton, drama productions, student leadership opportunities, and a school reach team. As such we also offer programming that is focused on making sure that all students are successful and graduate high school.
