​​​Regular Program at the CBE

Even though most of our schools offer a regular program, no two are quite the same. All schools teach according to Alberta Education’s mandated curriculum, however a school’s focus, optional courses and school activities are as unique as every school.​​​

Program, Focus & Approach

Homework Guidance

The Calgary Board of Education makes recommendations about homework in an Administrative Regulation (see link on the right of this page). Assigning homework is up to the individual teacher, but students and parents are encouraged to set aside some regular time each evening for home study or recreational reading. The nature and amount of home study recommended are as follows:

  • Division I (Grades 1 to 3)  Parents and teachers should encourage children to read each evening. No formal assignments should be made, but from 5-10 minutes of systematic study per night is recommended.
  • Division II (Grades 4 to 6)  Formal homework assignments may be given at the discretion of the teacher. They should be within the 20 minute range. Questions about homework can be directed firstly to your child’s teacher.

Start Smart Stay Safe

Our school has recently become a S4 school. S4 is a collaborative partnership between Calgary Police Service, the CBE and Calgary Catholic Schools. S4 is a proactive, strengths-based model of teaching/learning where police, families, and schools partner together to actively build positive relationships, create safe communities and prepare children for the challenges of our complex, changing world.

Middle School Designation

New Brighton School students attend Dr. Martha Cohen School for grades 5 through 9 and then Lord Beaverbrook High School for grades 10 through 12.
