School Location

Hillhurst School is a gracious sandstone building built in 1912 beside beautiful Riley Park just blocks from the Bow River. The building has been lovingly maintained and sunlight floods in through 20-foot high windows. The friendly and inclusive environment at the school makes it easy for new families and children alike to get involved and adjust to the community. The surrounding communities of Hillhurst, West Hillhurst, Briar Hill and Sunnyside are among the oldest in Calgary and have been rejuvenated in the last twenty years with increasingly upscale homes along tree-lined streets. Those who live here can walk downtown to work and bike the river pathways for fun and exercise. The shopping area of Kensington, a five-minute walk from the school is voted the favourite area in Calgary because of the many cafes, restaurants and interesting shops. Within ten minutes are the University of Calgary, the Foothills Hospital, the new Children’s Hospital, the Jubilee Auditorium, the Alberta College of Art, Southern Institute of Technology, a convenient mall and Home Depot, two community centres, ice arenas and tennis courts.

About the School

We have 9 classrooms for grades 1 to 6 and a morning and a afternoon kindergarten class. We have a gym, a library, computers in classrooms as well as a computer lab. We also use Riley park, adjacent to our school, for outdoor activities. Our school is a beautiful old heritage sandstone building with wide halls, big sunny windows and oak wainscotting along the hall walls. The parents,staff and students are friendly and very supportive of the school and one another. Our school welcomes volunteers and has a wonderful and active School Council.
