Grades Taught



Welcome to C.W. Sears Elementary School! C.W. Sears School works in partnership with parents and community to provide a safe environment in which each student develops lifelong learning skills to make a positive contribution in an increasingly complex and ever-changing society.​​


C.W. Sears School operates within Battle River School Division and serves Kindergarten to Grade 4 students from within the town of Tofield, Alberta and its surrounding rural areas, approximately 45 km east of Edmonton.  Students graduating from our school move just across the school yard to Tofield School, which serves students in Grades 5 - Grade 12.

C.W. Sears School officially opened on November 21, 1979 and was named after Mr. Charlie W. Sears, former Chairman of the Board of Education and long-time school trustee for Holden School District and the County of Beaver School Division.
