  • Welcome


    Located in north Edmonton, Major-General Griesbach School (MGG) is a Kindergarten to Grade 9 school in the neighbourhood named after W.A. Griesbach, a World War I soldier and Edmonton's youngest mayor.  The school was formerly the center of learning for the children of military families stationed at CFB Edmonton. Today, it is a part of Edmonton Public Schools

    The Griesbach neighbourhood is expanding, renovating, and improving, and so has MGG.  As announced by Alberta Education, a completely new facility was designed, built, and opened for classes on September 4, 2012.  The new school was designed to accommodate up to 600 students from Kindergarten to Grade 9.
