Introduction

At Milo Community School we promote critical thinking and global citizenship with a family atmosphere. With a vibrant and supportive community around it, Milo's students and teachers enjoy and take pride in their school. We are located in the rolling hills of Southern Alberta on the northeastern edge of Lake McGregor, halfway between Calgary and Lethbridge. The village of Milo has a population of approximately 120 residents and is surrounded by a rural population, primarily engaged in grain farming. The Siksika Nation borders the attendance areas to the north.
