For many parents, the task of selecting where their child receives his/her education can be a challenge. Questions such as ‘What is the cost of tuition?’ ‘What is the student to staff ratio?’ and ‘What programs are available?’ are commonly discussed by parents. In Calgary and surrounding area, families are fortunate to have a wide variety of options when considering the best choice of school for their child to attend. Since the possibilities can be overwhelming, it is important to narrow them down. The Annual Guide to Schools’ aim is to assist parents in making these decisions.
