M.E.LaZerte Treaty 6 Acknowledgement

The students and staff of M.E. LaZerte are honoured and grateful to be on Treaty 6 Territory. Edmonton – Amisk Waci Washahikan (Beaver Hills House) is a gathering place and traveling route for Indigenous Peoples including: Cree, Blackfoot, Nakota, Sioux, Iroquios, Dene, Ojibway, Salteaux, Inuit and homeland to the Metis Nation. The land where M.E. LaZerte is on was once an area that was full of saskatoon bushes. Nations would meet here and harvest the berries all summer.Our kinship with the land, the water and the animals provides us with the opportunity to live, work and play on this territory. Our responsibility for reconciliation is to honour this treaty for as long as the sun shines, the sweet grass grows and the river flows.

Message from Principal George Hoyt

Inspire passion. Develop character. Change lives. 

Welcome to M.E. LaZerte High School. I am privileged to get to work here and be part of such a strong community.  M.E. LaZerte is a proud community with a long history.  The history of the school has set the standards for all staff and students.  Over time, we have built success by working cooperatively with parents/guardians and the community to provide a meaningful educational experience for all students.  These relationships are the foundation to our students having all the support they need to successfully navigate high school. M.E LaZerte has one of the top high school completion rates in the city and province because of this.

M.E. LaZerte provides a safe and inclusive environment that focuses on engaged teaching and learning. Our learners are challenged to be leaders through service around their school and in the greater community.

To all community members and stakeholders, we have an open door policy at M.E. LaZerte. We work through people, not around them, with a focus on solutions and support for next steps. I will provide leadership that will continue to ensure a collaborative school environment. I will empower students and staff to focus on differentiated instruction that meets the needs of every student. I hope to see you around our M.E. LaZerte High School community.

George Hoyt


NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION (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. Visit the Division website to learn how to register for school. 

If you are a student currently in a non-EPSB school, we have two in person dates for registration paperwork collection and course selection.

March 21 - 4:30-6:30pm or April 5 - 4:30-6:30pm at M.E.LaZerte Library. Please click on this link to fill out the form.

Get ready for the 2023–24 school year! Sign in to your parent SchoolZone account between March 6 and April 14 to select your child’s preferred school for next year. 

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

If you have questions about registering for school, contact the school office at 780-408-9800.

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

We will now only accept resident students who move into the school’s attendance area for the regular program. 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.
