Principal's Message

Welcome to Colonel Macleod School! Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and to learn about us.

We are a dynamic middle school that strives to be an academically excellent, developmental responsive and highly inclusive community. We have a dedicated staff of teachers and support staff who work to accomplish this each day. As with our colleagues around the Calgary Board of Education, our goal is to provide the best possible environment for all students to develop academically, personally, in citizenship and their own character - key results identified by our Board of Trustees.

As a professional staff, our teachers work hard individually and collectively to remain current in educational research and practice. As middle school educators, we also understand and respond to the unique characteristics of middle school students. We meet in small and large groups regularly for professional development and learning, and to actively support one another in reaching our goal of meeting the needs of all learners.

Our support staff includes such varied roles as Admin Assistant, Bookkeeper, Educational Assistant, English Language Learners' Assistant, Library Assistant, lunchroom and facilities staff. The work they do is instrumental to the success of our students and to the culture of our school.

As a public school offering a community program and the Traditional Learning Centre program program, our students represent a wonderful diversity of backgrounds that all come together to call ourselves the "Cougars". Our motto, "Cougar PRIDE" (expanded at the top of this page), embodies the qualities that we strive to cultivate in each of our students and that we see around the school on a daily basis. We are proud of our students and of our school!

If you have any questions, please contact us here at the school. We'd be happy to speak with you.
