About

St. Martin de Porres School serves children in Kindergarten to Grade 5 in a Catholic faith learning environment. With a focus on drama, music, and the visual arts, we are a school of choice for children and families who want a stimulating and culturally enriched learning experience. We are located in West Park and in close proximity to the Red Deer College. Faith permeates all that we do at St. Martin de Porres School. The Catholic values of our Christian faith are integrated into our learning and are practiced throughout the day. We also integrate fine arts into religious celebrations. We believe God’s Word comes alive for students, staff, and parents when they take an active role and reflect on their learning. St. Martin de Porres School has an excellent record for academic excellence and we are known as a friendly and welcoming school. We serve students in West Park, West Lake, South Hill, Downtown, Waskasoo, Woodlea, Parkvale, Bower, Woodland Hills, C&E Trail, Waskasoo Estates, Penhold and Springbrook. Students living in other areas may also attend our school - please contact us for more information.
