​Regular Program at the CBE

Even though most of our schools offer a regular program, no two are quite the same. All schools teach according to Alberta Education’s mandated curriculum, however a school’s focus, optional courses and school activities are as unique as every school.​​​

​Middle Years at the CBE

Middle years learning refers to education offered to students between the ages of 10-15. These years are critical in keeping our students on the path to high school completion and their career futures. Keys for student success include: participating in hands-on, purposeful and relevant learning; creating positive relationships with peers, teachers and other adults; and being actively involved in the community and feeling supported by family, businesses and other organizations that surround them.

Learn more about our students in their middle years, including how their learning will change and how you can support your child, visit the CBE website.​

​Exploring Career Choices

For Grades 5 to 9 at the CBE, we offer Career & Technology Foundations (CTF). This is an inquiry-based, hands-on program that focuses on essential skills common to occupational areas, and our students personalize their learning based on their interests and passions.​​​

RT @Mathgarden: Grades are not only dehumanizing, they are statistically inaccurate. Any teacher who hums and haws about **bumping up** a grade from 77 to 80(for cosmetic purposes) doesn't realize there must be at least a 10% **error** to issue that grade in the first place.

RT @robertkaplinsky: I love this context for introducing Least Common Multiple to students. How many hot dogs and buns should Steve Martin buy? https://t.co/PnsbKZazot #iteachmath #MTBoS https://t.co/iQFZYPBE5E

RT @mashupmath: Kids can better grasp math topics when they think about and express them visually and creatively! #21stEdChat https://t.co/Egc41YlDMF
