Our school is located in the northwest community of Brentwood, just a few kilometers from the downtown core of the city. The School is the proud home of two programs. The majority of students attend our alternative program - the "Traditional Learning Centre program". This program follows the Alberta Program of Studies and has a focus on direct instruction, critical thinking, and character education. The program utilizes core resources that are common to all TLC programs in the CBE. French as a Second Language is provided through a locally developed curriculum, in grades one to three. 

Beginning in Grade 4 students follow the Alberta Program of Studies, French as a Second Language curriculum. We have a strong music program with music specialist teachers, beginning in Kindergarten. Students attending our Traditional Learning Centre program come from the CBE's Area One. Our Traditional Learning Centre program currently serves students in Kindergarten to Grade 4. Grade 5 and 8 students are located at Thomas B. Riley School.

Brentwood School also houses a system Communication, Sensory and Social Interaction (CSSI) program for students residing generally in Area One. This is one of several similar programs offered by the Calgary Board of Education throughout the city. These students have all been identified as being on the autism spectrum. Placement into this program is made through referral at the student's current school. All students have Individual Program Plans which include learning, academic, fine and gross motor, speech and/or language, and behavioural / social goals. These students form 2 learning groups which work together and integrate into whole school activities when appropriate.

School Mission

The Traditional Learning program uses teacher-directed instruction and character education to foster reflective thinking, continuous learning and responsible citizenship. It is a celebration of cultural diversity and commonly held values. The virtues-oriented school environment prepares students to meet the moral, technological and global challenges of the 21st century. Guiding principles: Instruction is direct, sequential and enriched, built on the concept of a classical liberal arts education. Character education is intentionally taught in every class.

A positive school climate and behaviour policy centre on expected character values. There is a focus on virtues, positive values and respect for self, others and the environment. Development of moral intelligence is the expected outcome. Diversity is celebrated and common values are articulated in a virtues oriented environment that encourages responsible citizenship and collaboration.

School Motto

The school motto "Today's Learning . . . Tomorrow's Success" signifies the importance of learning as a lifelong activity that prepares children for active citizenship throughout their lives.

School Development Plan

​Each year, our school prepares a development plan with input from teachers, school staff, students and parents. We review many sources of data, including report cards, provincial achievement test results and school surveys. Based on this information, we create our plan identifying targeted areas for growth. Our school development plan is not meant to represent all of the work that takes place in our school, but rather it focuses on specific areas for improvement.​​​

School Results Report

Our school also prepares a results plan, which looks at our previous school year. It shows our students’ achievement and progress in meeting the goals and outcomes as set out by the CBE and Alberta Education, outlines some of the highlights of our school development plan and gives an overview of our school. You can look on the CBE website for system-wide results​.
