Memorial is home to well over 1000 students. In spite of that big number, we work hard to ensure that every student feels like they belong here. We have students coming to school each day from the town of Stony Plain itself, Paul First Nation, the Villages of Duffield, Wabamun, Seba Beach, Entwistle and Tomahawk, as well as numerous students from surrounding farms and acreages. Our student body covers a very large area.
We take pride in the word “composite” from our name, Memorial Composite High School. We have numerous courses available including academics, Career and Technology Studies, fine arts, second languages and physical education & wellness. You can check these out on our Programs page. Memorial prides itself in being current and providing students with quality learning experiences with current information. We continually update classroom equipment and school technology to allow students authentic experiences. We also partner with PSD’s alternative school, Connections for Learning, to offer blended programming to meet unique student needs and interests.
There are typically over a dozen school clubs in action each year at MCHS, with some being added and dropped depending on student interests.
