General Registration Information

It is not possible to register at the school on holidays and during the summer. During the summer break you can find more information and dates on our Back to School page.

How to Register

Notice Regarding Overflow School Designation for Grade 10 to 12 Students Residing in Martindale, Saddle Ridge and Taradale

June 30, 2022

The Calgary Board of Education (CBE) would like to inform parents and students that due to the continued enrolment growth at Nelson Mandela High School, the school will not be able to accommodate all students who reside in the school boundary for the 2022-23 school year. As of June 30, 2022, all new registrations for Grade 10-12 students designated to Nelson Mandela High School for the 2022-23 school year will be re-designated to James Fowler High School.

All students currently attending Nelson Mandela High School, or those students already registered to attend for the 2022-23 school year will be able to remain at Nelson Mandela High School until the end of Grade 12, provided they do not move out of their community.

Eligible students who cannot attend Nelson Mandela High School will be placed on a waitlist and called back to the school once space becomes available. Students will only be placed on a waitlist if they are attending their designated overflow school.

If space becomes available in Nelson Mandela High School throughout the school year that space will be offered to students on the waitlist who are currently attending the overflow location. More information about this process will be communicated to you in fall 2022.

See the notice for more information.

​​​​​​​​​Transferring Between CBE Schools

At the CBE, when you are transitioning from elementary to middle school, or from middle school to high school, you will be automatically registered at your designated school according to your home address. To find out what your designated school is, use our Find a School tool. 

If you are interested in attending a school other than your designated school, visit CBE's Transferring Between Schools page for transfer information. Please note that some schools are quite full and not able to accept all transfer requests.
