Support for Students at the CBE

Our students’ success is our top priority and we understand that our students live complex lives and that many factors both in the school and outside of school can affect their ability to learn. The CBE offers a variety of services (such as Culture and Linguistic Support, Exceptional and Special Needs, and Psychological Services) to support students, their families and our school, so students can be successful learners. Visit the CBE website to learn more.​​​​
