Our School

Lord Beaverbrook is one of the most vital schools and versatile school facilities within the CBE. The facilities both in the school and surrounding the school provide our students with unique learning opportunities and conveniences not found in all high schools. 

Our students continue to benefit from:

  • A $25M modernization to CTS facilities
  • Three fitness centers and weight rooms
  • Position in the community of Acadia
  • Central location in Calgary
  • Positive school-community relations
  • Walkable proximity to recreation facilities (Acadia Recreation Complex, Acadia Pool, Alberta Tennis Centre/National Tennis Development Program)
  • Contracted-working relationships with recreation facilities
  • Three full outdoor athletic fields (one of which is fully irrigated)

We look forward to welcoming your son or daughter to our school and to the many opportunities that are open to them.

Go Lords! Be Fiercely Proud.

Who Was Lord Beaverbrook?

Lord Beaverbrook High School was founded in 1967, and the first year of attendance was in 1968. We inherited our name from a man named William Maxwell Aitken. He was born on May 25, 1879, in Maple, Ontario. In 1916, he was recognized for his achievements with a seat in the House of Lords, the senior branch of the British Parliament. It was customary to create a title for oneself, so Aitken thought back to his childhood and the times he would spend fishing at a stream called the Beaverbrook. This is when he claimed the title, Lord Beaverbrook. Lord Beaverbrook died at the age of eighty-five, on June 9, 1964.

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​.
