Our school is part of the CBE, which is the largest school district in Western Canada. We offer a depth and breadth of programs and supports to meet the unique learning needs and interests of an increasingly diverse population. We focus on personalizing the learning experience so that each student is engaged, inspired and learning to their full potential. Our values are: students come first; learning is our central purpose; and public education serves the common good.

You can look on the CBE website for more information on teaching and learning.​​

Teaching & Learning

Period 5

At Forest Lawn High School, we believe that regular attendance by our students is directly linked to an overall successful high school experience. The Alberta Education Act and the Calgary Board of Education’s Administrative Regulation 6020 – Attendance of Students, both reinforce the expectation that students should “attend school regularly and punctually." In addition to regular attendance and punctuality, students are expected to complete their assignments within their scheduled classes in order to be successful in high school. All students are expected to be present and engaged in their learning during scheduled class time and not disrupt the proceedings of the classroom. Should students demonstrate behaviours such as absences, punctuality, incomplete assignments, or disruptions to the classroom which may negatively impact student learning, teachers or administrators may assign students time after school on Tuesdays or Thursdays to make up missed time or assignments.

Beginning this week there will be a scheduled “Period 5” at the end of the day on Tuesday and Thursday in the learning commons from 3:30pm – 4:30pm to allow students to make up missed class time or assignments should they be assigned by their teacher or an administrator. Please contact Matt Fell in the main office if you have any questions.

If students require extra support in their courses they can still access our scheduled before and after school tutorials. Attached below is our schedule for individual teachers and departments.
