List of schools in Regina, Saskatchewan

This is a list of schools (at the elementary and secondary level) that are located in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. The two main school divisions encompassing the city are the Regina Board of Education (also known as the Regina public school board; the largest school division in the province) and Regina Catholic Schools, the Roman Catholic/separate school board. The public system has approximately 21,000 students enrolled across the city; the Catholic board has an enrolment number of approximately 10,000 students. There are also a number of independent schools located in Regina, including Luther College High School and Regina Christian School.

Historically, the publicly funded separate schools were exclusively for the children of Catholic families, who were, by way of ensuring continued support for the separate school system and also as a matter of Catholic doctrine, discouraged from enrolling in the public schools, which were officially secular but which originally maintained a degree of de facto Protestant religious education. Latterly, with a broadly secular ethos having taken hold across Canadian society and the general school population being considerably lower than in the past, enrollment by non-Catholic children in separate schools and by Catholic children in public schools has been less discouraged. This reflects that curricula for all schools in Saskatchewan are set by the provincial department of education, known as Saskatchewan Learning.

In Saskatchewan, elementary school generally takes place from Kindergarten until completion of Grade 8; education to this level has always been mandatory. Secondary school generally takes place from Grade 9 until completion of Grade 12, with the exception of some schools which offer specialized K-12 programs and alternative schools. With exception to Mother Teresa Middle School in Regina and Sion Middle School in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan has declined to introduce specialized "junior high schools".

The first school opened in Regina in 1883, a year after the city was officially incorporated. It was located in the home of Miss Fanny Laidlaw.[1]
