Homes for sale near G. W. Skene School in Calgary.
G.W. Skene school was built in 1979 and is situated on 20 acres. The school is organized into nine classrooms. Each classroom creates and maintains a comprehensive literacy program. Teachers integrate music and art daily into lessons. A physical education teacher provides a daily program within our high school size gymnasium. In 2012 our library was converted into a Learning Commons which serves as a hub for discipline-based inquiry. A dedicated Learning Commons teacher facilitates inter-disciplinary opportunities for all students.
Our school is unique in that we are a Division II school having only students in Grades 3 to 5. Students in Kindergarten and Grades 1 -2 attend James Short Memorial School located on the adjoining field. Students move from G. W. Skene to Ernest Morrow School for Grades 6 to 9 and to Forest Lawn High School. Our students bring a rich diversity to our school community with approximately 60% of our students having English as a second language.

We believe that education is a journey and that staff and students are on this journey together. We believe that our students are capable of not only learning information but developing thoughts and ideas to solve complex problems. It is our dream that every student realizes their potential as learners.
Our “endgame” at G.W. Skene is to see all of our students graduate from high school ready for the world. We want them to understand who they are, including their values, strengths, and dreams for the future.
We embrace a philosophy called the Circle of Courage. The Circle of Courage impacts how we see students’ social and emotional development, as well as their academic achievement and learning. This philosophy is rooted in an understanding of the world from our First Nations peoples, yet applies to all children and is supported by current psychological thinking.
