Mission Statement: At Savanna School we will focus on respectful relationships while providing rural students with opportunities for individual academic success, active living and positive contributions to their school, local, and global communities.

Savanna School is a rural K-12 school located in the community of Savanna. The area is approximately 50 km in diameter. Our school, along with a recreation complex and general store, forms the community center. We benefit from excellent support from our stakeholders. Six full-time and three part-time teachers make up our professional staff. There are nine support staff plus five bus drivers.

Savanna School offers many opportunities for students to participate in many activities. These activities provide opportunities for students to interact and develop social and leadership skills in an informal setting. Some of the current activities at Savanna include:

Located conveniently across the road from the Rec­Plex. Makes it convenient for after school activities such as hockey. Savanna School is happy to be partnered with the Saddle Hills County Municipal Library board to form a municipal library within the school.
