All Boys Program

In September 2011 we opened the All Boys Program, a Calgary Board of Education alternative program in Sir James Lougheed School. This is the only stand alone public school for boys in Calgary, and as far as I can determine, the first in Canada. We registered 80 boys from K - grade 5. 

September 2012, 130 boys registered from K to 6 for the 2013-2013 school year.

Call 403 777 8400 for a tour and to meet the principal. 

I retired from the CBE on April 1, 2013.
