Infographic: Tracking Calgary’s most — and least — crowded public schools

As many as 40 public schools in Calgary are operating at more than 100 per cent capacity, according to the latest enrolment numbers released by the Calgary Board of Education.

Pockets of overcrowding exist in newer communities in the deep south, such as Sundance, where Centennial High School is operating at 122 per cent of capacity, and Fish Creek School is at 112 per cent.

In areas north of Fish Creek Provincial Park, meanwhile, some schools are well below capacity, such as Braeside School (48 per cent), Harold Panabaker School (54 per cent) and Robert Warren School (43%).

In some areas, schools are at both ends of the spectrum. In the northwest community of Brentwood, for example, Sir Winston Churchill High School is at 114 per cent, while just next door Simon Fraser (Grades 5-9) is at 68 per cent.

CBE says parents will be asked to consider boundary changes and movement of alternative programs as the system struggles with continued growth. Officials will conduct a two-year engagement process to analyze data and enrolment projections in all quadrants, affecting all schools.

We’ve plotted all CBE schools on this map, so you can see the situation in your community. Here’s the CBE document containing the enrolment data.
