Public schools in Calgary are served by the Calgary Board of Education (CBE), which cares for more than 200 schools. The CBE admits that finding the correct information for its schools can be difficult - so they've created a page to make it easier.
Even still, searching through all the information that the CBE offers is daunting. Here, we've gone ahead and searched through their website and found links to some of the most pertinent information.
The schools in the CBE system are organized into five areas - each with a website - which correspond to specific neighbourhoods and communities in Calgary. These units work together to articulate the CBE's goals for public education: planning, partnerships and resource allocation.
The CBE offers an interactive map that shows which communities correspond to which schools.
