Sir Alexander Mackenzie Elementary is a public elementary school in Vancouver, British Columbia part of School District 39 Vancouver.

History[edit]

Mackenzie was constructed in 1925 with an enrollment of about 25 to 30 students. In 1930 the official school was built and opened for grades K to 7. Students had to wear uniforms which were the school colours of blue and white and the girls had to go in through the south side and the boys had to go in through the west side. When Fleming elementary was constructed the board of education was thinking of making it a Mackenzie annex but they thought it was too close to the Henderson annex. In 2005 it was the celebration of 75 years of teaching in Mackenzie school an important occasion for the school (the next big celebration will be the 100 years).

Mackenzie offers a variety of programs from music to physical education, business education along with the normal courses offered in the Vancouver curriculum.
