Welcome to Hillhurst School

We are one of over 227 schools with the Calgary Board of Education that offer a high quality public education program. Hillhurst School, built in 1912, is a small, vibrant elementary school adjacent to Riley Park. The school draws from 41 northwest communities and currently has 1 Kindergarten class and 7 Grade 1 to 6 classes. It also houses 5 GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) classes for Division II students.


Hillhurst has a close-knit, caring atmosphere that supports the individual growth of children. Through collaborative community effort, we provide enriched learning experiences that foster academic excellence and develop active, responsible, compassionate citizens.


Learning Conferences | Oct. 5, & 6, 2017

Learning Conferences will be taking place the following dates and times:


October 5 4:00-8:00pm
October 6  8:00-12:00pm

The conferences will be booked through an on-line system starting Thursday, September 28 at 8:00am.  This can be booked through MY CBE Account.


Learning Conference Format
The October Conference is a great opportunity for you to meet your child’s teacher and share information about your child.  This face-to-face meeting with your child’s teacher will focus on establishing goals for academic and social success.  This conference will allow both teachers and parents to share information and develop strategies to support student success. We encourage parents to bring their child to be part of this conversation.


Online Booking Logistics
Please note that for each child you will be booking a 15 minute face-to-face meeting time with their homeroom teacher.  Please call the office if you need some assistance or are experiencing difficulties with your booking and we will be happy to support you.  Further, we have a number of specialist teachers who you can also book conferences with.  These teachers are Leigh Underdahl for Physical Education, Rebecca Klassen for Music and Anne Yee for French (grades 4-6). 


We look forward to seeing you and continuing our journey of student success in the 2017-2018 school year.

Report Traffic Safety Concerns


The safety of our students is of primary concern to us.  Often, we outline safe driving practices while around our building and appeal to parents to role model safety over convenience.  If you see infractions, we encourage you to use this Calgary Police Service link to report traffic safety concerns.  They have agreed to support our concerns.
