Grant MacEwan (1902 - 2000)

Grant MacEwan was a remarkable man. Dr. John Walter Grant MacEwan was born to pioneering parents on Aug. 12, 1902 in Brandon, Manitoba. He was known as an academic, historian, philanthropist, conservationist, politician, author, lecturer, teacher, farmer, statesman, a special grandfather, and a great Canadian who lived by his creed. He was Mayor of Calgary from 1963-1965 and he also served as Lieutenant Governor of the Province of Alberta from 1966-1974. An accomplished author, he wrote over 35 books and historical publications. Dr. Grant MacEwan passed away on June 15, 2000 at the age of 97. His legacy continues to have a strong presence within the school community. Grant MacEwan holds a special place in the hearts of students, staff, and parents of the school that proudly bears his name. 

“Canada needs the vigour, the honesty and the imagination of youth.” – Dr. Grant MacEwan

Our School's Commitment to Truth and Reconciliation

We are committed to acknowledging and supporting the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission 94 Calls to Action specific to education. In 2021, our school, along with all CBE schools made a TRC Commitment to Action. On June 21, 2022, we renewed our commitment, which can be found under Resources.​​

​​​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 Improvement 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​.
