Our School

Welcome to New Brighton School. It is with a great deal of pride we welcome you to New Brighton School and thank you for choosing the Calgary Board of Education. During your time here we hope we can work together to build a strong school community that meets the academic, social and emotional needs of your child. In the 21st century, the ability to adjust to meet the needs of individual students has never been more important. We hope that, together, we can embrace the diversity that makes up the New Brighton community to enrich the experience of each one of us over the coming school year.

Developing common language that represents expectations for adults and children in learning and social situations is an important part of building a school culture of learning. Behaviour programs often separate the learning from the behavior – while research and experience tells us they are inseparable. At New Brighton School, learning, social skills and connections to each other and the community will be guided by simple statements.

  • Take care of yourself
  • Take care of each other
  • Take care of this place

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​.

RT @elboyacbe: What an opportunity…students listened to FIFA soccer referee, Drew Fischer who officiated at the 2022 Men’s World Cup in Qatar. Talk about working towards and achieving one’s highest personal potential. Very inspiring! #wearecbe@yyCBEduhttps://t.co/y2M94sUnCs
