About Our School

Bob Edwards School is located in the community of Marlborough and is the designated French Immersion Program for students living east of Deerfoot Trail (northeast and sections of southeast Calgary). There are approximately 300 students enrolled for the 2014-2015 school year. Of the 300 students there are 160 students registered in the French Immersion program and 140 students in the English program. Approximately 10% of our students have a learning code. Our English as Second Language learners makes up 40% of the total school population. Many of our ELL students are new to Canada and have the added complexity of learning a second language, and if registered in the French Immersion program, there is further complexity in learning a third language.

  • Our school development plan focuses on reading comprehension, personalized learning, student engagement and academic achievement. Staff utilize a variety of current best practices and are dedicated to including principles of personalized learning and inquiry based learning into their practices.
  • We offer an excellent cafeteria menu and a quality intramural program during the lunch hour. We have a full complement of athletic programs/teams offered throughout the school year. Students can participate in an excellent Band and CTS/Fine Arts program.
  • Bob Edwards is a bus receiver school with students coming from many communities in the northeast/southeast quadrant of the city.

We strive for students to:

TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF
TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER
TAKE CARE OF YOUR SCHOOL
