Hillhurst School, built in 1912, is a small, vibrant elementary school adjacent to Riley Park. We have 12 classrooms for Grades 1 to 6 and a morning kindergarten class. We have a gym, a library, and computers in classrooms as well as four carts of laptops. We also use Riley park for outdoor activities. Our school is a beautiful old heritage sandstone building with wide halls, big sunny windows and oak wainscotting along the hall walls. The parents, staff and students are friendly and very supportive of the school and one another. Our school welcomes volunteers and has a wonderful and active School Council

Hillhurst has a close-knit, caring atmosphere that supports the individual growth of children. Through collaborative community effort, we provide enriched learning experiences that foster academic excellence and develop active, responsible, compassionate citizens.

Vision

The Calgary Board of Education is the dynamic learning community of choice.

School Motto

We Are Learning For Life.

Mission Statement

Each student, in keeping with his or her individual abilities and gifts, will complete high school with a foundation of learning necessary to thrive in life, work and continued learning.

School Highlights

Global Citizenship

We are exploring how inquiry connects to developing citizenship in our students. This has been facilitated by sponsoring a student in Namibia as part of our goal towards developing global citizens.

Inquiry-based Learning

Around the question: "How can knowing about the past shape us today and tomorrow?"

Lunch Program

Hillhurst offers a lunch program supervised by a dedicated team of professionals. The Hillhurst Sunnyside Daycare adjacent to the school offers before and after school care to many of our students as well. 

Clubs

Hillhurst teachers provide an array of clubs for our students. Students will be informed as clubs start during the year.

Grandparent Reading Program

Since 1987, this program runs every Wednesday morning throughout the school year, starting in October. A number of incredible seniors come to our school to work with our students on a one-to-one basis. Over the course of the school year, many students in our school have the opportunity to work with these interested seniors on a wide variety of projects from reading to math to hands-on craft work.

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​.
