New to the CBE

Registration Process During a Health Emergency

To register new students during the COVID-19 pandemic follow the steps outlined in Registration on the Calgary Board of Education website. Look on the Kindergarten to Grade 9 or High School Registration pages.

General Registration Information

If you have questions for our school, contact us for information.

It is not possible to register at the school on holidays and during the summer. During the summer break you can find more information and dates on our Back to School page.

Non-Canadian students have a different registration process: please see our Non-Canadian Students page for details.​

Out-of-Boundary Students

If you would like to transfer from one CBE school to another, please refer to the instructions in the request to transfer form.

When you are transitioning from elementary to middle school, you will be automatically registered at your designated school (according to your home address and program).​​​​​​​​​​

What School is Next​ 

Every child in Calgary has a designated school based on their home address and the program they choose. If you are going to be attending your designated school in your current program, registration is done automatically through your current school’s main office. To find out what your designated school is, use our Find a School​ ​tool. You can apply to attend any school, even if it is not your designated one. Each principal determines if their school has capacity to accept out-of-boundary students, usually after enrolment numbers are determined. For more information, contact ​the school you are interested in attending. Transportation services may not be available if you are attending a non-designated school.​​​​​ 

Visit the CBE website to see when other schools are having open houses, should you want to learn more about your next school.​​​​​​

Notice of Intent

This is a brightly colored sheet sent home with each child where we are asking parents to advise us, as best as possible, of their plans for the following school year.

There are many shifting variables as we consider how many people we can accept into our school, into which grades, and into what program. While we recognize that you may not be sure what your plans are for September, all information provided is in fact useful data. With the opening of the new schools in Tuscany and Royal Oak/Rocky Ridge, we know that attending a school close to homes is now a feasible option. How many are staying, how many are returning to community schools, and how many are unsure for next school year–this is all important information for us to consider as we make decisions for next year.

Particularly important is the question regarding current non-school aged children. We appreciate knowing how many siblings to expect for kindergarten registration in the coming years in advance of offering placement to new students.

Please return the Notice of Intent form promptly by the date of return stated on the form. If you have misplaced or lost your copy, please contact the school office to obtain a replacement.

Transferring to A Different School

If your student will no longer attend W.O. Mitchell School, please notify the office at 403-777-6100 as soon as possible. Please leave a message if no one answers the phone. We will be happy to facilitate the transfer process for you.
