Calgary, AB | Grades PS - 12 | Shortlist
There are more than ample opportunities for parents to partake in the community spirit at CFIS. Class reps, class field trip volunteering, extracurricular volunteering, events such as welcome back bbq's and Halloween parties all foster the community feel. At the same time, there is no pressure to be involved, and parents can tailor their involvement based on their commitments. Further, the school administration all make an effort to involve and welcome parents, and it is greatly appreciated. With all of the group communication that goes out, parents are kept well informed of school happenings and always given the opportunity to provide feedback. In our first year of having our kids at CFIS, we developed many friendships and had a great time as a family, and feel as if we "all" attend the school!
