New Brighton community is very fortunate to have three schools. We are thankful to a number of dedicated individuals who worked hard to lobby the provincial government for these schools in our community – this was the start of the New Brighton Community Association. With their hard work, we now have the following schools: 

School Crosswalk Safety

The safety of our children walking to and from school is paramount. Please drive safely around school areas. The bell times are listed below to help our community members that do not have children at school, to plan their drive around them! This will reduce the congestion at these very busy times.

  • New Brighton Elementary School Monday – Thursday 8:10am – 3:10pm
    Friday 8:10am – 11:45am
  • Dr. Martha Cohen School Monday – Thursday 8:28am – 3:10pm
    Friday 8:28am – 12:20pm
  • St. Marguerite School Monday – Friday 8:15am – 2:40pm

While these are the busiest times each day for children crossing, please be aware that New Brighton Elementary and St. Marguerite School have Kindergarten classes in the morning and afternoon. Older students from Dr. Martha Cohen are also able to leave the school grounds at lunchtime. Please keep this in mind when driving between 11:00am – 1:15pm Monday to Friday. Our community thanks you for your help with this.

For more information about these schools please contact Calgary Board of Education or Calgary Catholic School Division.

Fundraising for Schools

Parent’ Associations fundraise for playgrounds, band programs and more school programs. The New Brighton Elementary Parent’s Association successfully fundraised for the new K – 4 playground that was put in this year (2020). This is their website were you can check their activity and contact them. Any ideas or help is highly appreciated.
