New to the CBE

Registration Process During a Health Emergency

To register new students during the COVID-19 pandemic follow the steps outlined in Registration on the Calgary Board of Education website. Look on the Kindergarten to Grade 9 or High School Registration pages.

General Registration Information

If you have questions for our school, contact us for 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.

Non-Canadian students have a different registration process: please see our Non-Canadian Students page for details.​

​​​​​​​What School is Next and Transferring Between CBE Schools

Every CBE student has a designated school based on their home address. When you transition 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 your designated school, use our Find a School tool. 

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


How to Register

Registration at Woodman

If you have questions for our school, contact us for information by calling the main office (403-777-7490, ex. 0), in between 8:30-4:00 on Monday-Thursday and 8:30-2:00 on Fridays. 

Determinations of Designated and Out-of-Boundary Students

Every child in Calgary has a designated school based on their home address and the program they choose. You can apply to attend any school, even if it is not your designated school, although application does not guarantee acceptance. Each principal determines if their school has capacity to accept out-of-boundary students. At Woodman School, students join as continuous registrations from the following feeder schools:

Regular Program
(Grade 7-9)
Haysboro School
Chinook Park School (Entry Point: Grade 7)
Continuing French Program  
(Grade 5-9) 
Janet Johnstone (Entry Point: Grade 5)
Chinook Park School (Entry Point: Grade 7)
Late French Program
(Grade 7) 
All schools south of Glenmore Trail and west of Macleod Trail


If you would like to transfer from one CBE school to another, please refer to the instructions in the request to transfer form.       

School principals, in consultation with the Area 6 office, make decisions in a team-based approach, for all Transfer Request Forms that have been collected by the stated due date and decisions will be communicated back to families by early-mid May.  As indicated in the Transfer Request Form, priority may be given to requests for families who already have a sibling registered at the school for the upcoming school year.   Response times may be dependent upon the timing and release of school budgets.

RT @Indigenous_cbe: Today is fall equinox - a time when daylight & nighttime share the sky equally. Today is also Treaty 7 Day - the 144th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 7. The 🌞 & 🌙s equality today teaches us how to honour the treaty...by walking together in equal partnership. #welcomeoko https://t.co/7nUdmGVAVL
