Homes for sale near Bob Edwards School in Calgary. 

Bob Edwards was opened in September 1970 and is one of four Calgary schools of similar architecture that has a combination of open and closed academic areas. The school’s mascot is the Eagle. This majestic bird is a symbol of strength, determination, dedication, and fortitude.

The school was named after Bob Edwards, the owner, publisher, and editor of the local newspaper, The Eye-Opener. Bob Edwards was born in Scotland in 1864 and moved to Calgary in 1904. Many others considered his beliefs about politics and social reform as being ahead of his time. He used his newspaper as a way to share his wit and humor, and to push for social reform for the betterment of Calgary. While his views were often unpopular to some readers, he was respected for having the courage to speak his mind.

As Dr. Grant MacEwan said in a selection from his book, Eye Opener Bob, “Whatever sins may have been laid at his door, his heart was big, and his mind was clear and altogether he was a most fascinating part of early Alberta.”

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). 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 NE & S.E. quadrants of the city.
- In order to support second language acquisition, Bob Edwards offers an opportunity for grade 6 students in its designated French Immersion communities to learn French through the use of Intensive French Strategies. This unique learning opportunity emphasizes learning French language skills through a variety of strategies. Students begin the program with little or no knowledge of French; instructional practices are based on literacy with an emphasis on the language competencies of listening and speaking.

Assignments and Homework

One of our goals is to help students develop responsibility for their own learning. To assist students with this, we consistently strategize and emphasize the importance of completing work at an acceptable level that shares personal knowledge and understanding and is completed on time. Parents are encouraged to assist by providing a suitable place to work and by insisting that your child take ownership and personal responsibility for completing assignments and meeting deadlines.

Homework includes:

  • Completion of work that was not finished in class.
  • Completion of projects and assignments. If absent from school, it is expected, that the student will take responsibility for obtaining the missed work (60 minutes each night is an appropriate amount of homework)
  • On-going review of work. Study time set aside regularly
