Important Changes to the Regular Program Student Population at John G. Diefenbaker High School

The Calgary Board of Education (CBE) would like to remind parents and students of the community designation changes at John G. Diefenbaker High School that will occur when the new north Calgary high school (official name still to be announced) opens for the 2023-24 school year. 

In May 2019, the CBE launched a community engagement initiative to develop a sustainable plan that balances enrolment across CBE high schools and gives students access, flexibility, and choice in programming. In June 2021, based on feedback received from stakeholders and considering the CBE's values and planning principles, the CBE informed families of the following changes to the regular program at John G. Diefenbaker High School: 

  • The Evanston, Kincora, MacEwan Glen, Sage Hill and Sandstone Valley communities will be designated to John G. Diefenbaker High School when the new north Calgary high school opens in Sept. 2023.
  • The Harvest Hills and Panorama Hills communities will be re-designated to the new north Calgary high school when the school opens in Sept. 2023.

Please see the notice for more details and a map of the attendance area.
