    Registration and Pre-Enrolment



    You will need to pre-enrol on SchoolZone to tell us the school you’d like your child to attend next year. Find important dates and deadlines and learn more about pre-enrolment, which opens between March and April each year.

    How to Pre-enrol in SchoolZone:

    Get ready for the 2022-23 school year! Sign in to your parent SchoolZone account between March 8 and April 14 to select your child’s preferred school for next year. If you're interested in online learning pre-enrol at Argyll Centre.

    Whether your child is staying at the same school or changing schools, all students need to pre-enrol. Knowing how many students to expect helps schools prepare to welcome them in September.

     If you need help, contact the school or read the pre-enrolment handout. Link below:



    Update your child’s current address with the school office before pre-enrolling in SchoolZone. 

    New to the Division?
    Instead of using SchoolZone, students who are new to Edmonton Public Schools need to submit a completed Student Registration form. Find the form and list of supporting documents you need to provide. 

    Online learning at Argyll Centre:  Families of Grade 1-12 students who would like to learn online for the 2022-23 school year can register or pre-enroll at Argyll Centre. More information is available on the Division website.



    If your child is new to Edmonton Public Schools, you can register for school online. Visit the Division website to learn how to register for school.

    DS Mackenzie School is now full in planned classes in grade 7, grade 8, and in grade 9 in the Regular Program. For the regular program, we will now only accept resident students in Grade 7, 8 and 9 who newly move into the school’s attendance area. A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic. Non-resident students can enrol in another Division school with space in planned classes.

    If you are new to Edmonton Public Schools, you must register online.

Welcome Message from Dr. Payne

Welcome to D. S. MacKenzie School!

Success, one student at a time. This speaks to our belief that all students have the right to a high quality learning environment and to be challenged to reach their potential as compassionate leaders, engaged learners, and contributing citizens.   Our school provides a safe, caring and welcoming atmosphere where diversity is honored, relationships are nurtured and perseverance is cultivated.  

We believe the educational journey of our students is a collective responsibility shared by our students, parents, school faculty and community members.  Through a collaborative approach, based on mutual respect and trust, together we can support the growth and success of all students.  As our valued partners, we invite our parents, caregivers and families to participate in school events throughout the year.  

Communication is a priority at D.S. MacKenzie and is a shared responsibility.  Updates and information will be communicated with parents and caregivers through SchoolZone and weekly emails.  Information regarding homework and classroom supports will be communicated with our students through Google classroom.  We encourage parents to connect with our faculty through in person conversations, phone calls and email.

We are committed to new technologies that support student achievement and utilize a ‘student owned device’ approach to learning.  We understand that this approach will enable students to cultivate knowledge and create innovative solutions within authentic contexts for learning. Using technology as a learning tool supports our focus on learning, critical thinking skills, managing information, and communicating as our students strive to become responsible global citizens. 

At D.S. MacKenzie School, we believe in the power of possibilities, positivity and partnerships because when we all work together, the impossible becomes possible!

Yours in partnership,

Dr. Larry Payne
