Biographical history

Jasper's first school in 1914 was a tar paper shack that had once served as the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway contractor's temporary office. It was soon torn down and the children were taught in a tent until a one room school house was built later that year. This became known as Cox School after Henry Cox made it his residence. The school had by then grown and the Board rented space in a series of buildings, including the Roman Catholic mission building and the Canadian Legion Hall. In 1924, railway employees were transfered from Lucerne to Jasper, prompting a need for a bigger school. A four room school was built by the Edmonton architect, A.M. Calderon in 1925, to which various additions were made over the years. In 1953, the Junior/Senior High School was completed, followed by the Elementary School in 1963. The first school teachers in Jasper included Lillian Taylor, Mel Taylor, Dora Doyle and Nora Findlay (Brooks).
