About Our School

Oyen Public School (OPS) is a rural school in sunny south eastern Alberta, 40km from the Saskatchewan border.  We offer learning for preschool students through grade 9, with a student population of approximately 140 students. Our students come from many outlying areas north of the Red Deer River.  We are the 11th largest of 19 schools in Prairie Rose Regional Division 8*.  The town of Oyen  is a mixed farming community and is home to the Badlands Baseball Academy.

Our students enjoy interscholastic sports: cross country, volleyball, basketball, badminton and track and field. We are introducing French and Communications/ Technology as part of our Career and Technology Foundations Program this year. Open Public School is home to the Panthers.
