Langevin School is located in the northeast community of Bridgeland/Riverside. We are a unique K-Grade 9 school that is primarily made up of students who come from throughout the city to attend the Science Alternative Program. We also house a system special education class (ACCESS). These are all programs of choice within the Calgary Board of Education.
The Science Alternative Program is the largest program with space for 630 students in Kindergarten through Grade 9. This program is designed to meet the needs of students who have a keen interest in science and inquiry based learning. Our Special Education Class (ACCESS III) has students with specialized learning needs. Students from all programs continue at their designated high schools for Grades 10-12.
Our School Name
Langevin School was named after Sir Hector Langevin who was one of the Fathers of Confederation. He visited Calgary in 1885 and, at the request of the town council, petitioned the Northwest Territories government for funds to build a bridge over the Bow River at 4th Street East (Edmonton Trail).
