Every student who is new to the CBE needs to register at their designated school. Everyone has a designated school based on their home address and the program they choose. You can find your designated school by using our Find a School tool. Contact us for more information.

To register, please:

  1. Bring the completed registration form, original documents showing your child’s proof of age and legal name (birth certificate or passport or court documents) and proof of your address (the principal may ask to see one or more of the following: driver’s licence, municipal/federal correspondence, financial/residential documents or a utility bill) to the school

Once your school has registered the student, you will be able to create a MyCBE / PowerSchool account. This online account lets you register for services and pay fees.​​​​​​​

​New to the CBE

If you are looking to join our school mid-year, contact us for information. 

It is not possible to register at the school during the summer or other times when the school is closed; please visit us when we are open to register. 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.

RT @cityofcalgary: It’s almost that time of year: students are heading back to school! Take extra caution in and around playground zones, and remember that the maximum speed in playground zones is 30 km/h, 7:30 am to 9 pm, 7 days/week. Passing isn’t permitted when the zone is in effect. https://t.co/48Aw3jZUgg
