​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.​​​

Programming Choices at Woodman School

We are proud to offer a high-quality comprehensive program which combines academic, complimentary, co-curricular and extra-curricular learning activities and experiences. Our students enjoy a rich school experience enhanced by a supporting emphasis on technology in teaching and learning, performing arts, fine arts, and community involvement.  

We are a triple-track program, offering a community-centred English Regular program (Gr. 7-9), Early French Immersion (Gr. 5-9) and Late French Immersion (Gr. 7-9).  We are the SE/SW program of choice for beginning on the exciting journey of language learning in the middle years, preparing adolescents for a future in which both official languages of Canada - English and French - can be fully utilized.  

Our teachers possess a wide range of professional skill sets, with areas of expertise in Career Technology Foundations, such as Culinary Arts, Design Technology, Construction, Ceramics, Art, Photography and Athletics.  Teachers of the French Immersion program model strong language proficiency and pedagogy.

​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.​​​

We are seeking input from our families, students and staff about what we should consider in our planning for school re-entry for the 2020-2021 school year. We will be collecting feedback until June 11 https://t.co/X3YzfNH5ZK #yycbe #WeAreCBE https://t.co/xpHFZLEc3H

CBE playgrounds remain closed. We will begin re-opening on Monday, June 1. Openings will continue throughout next week. Once the yellow tape has been removed and signs say the playground is open, the equipment can be used according to health guidelines. #yycbe #WeAreCBE #yyc https://t.co/zBid3GNq26
