​CALGARY – Prairie Sky School is the name of the new Calgary Board of Education elementary/middle school under construction in the northeast community of Skyview Ranch. The Board of Trustees approved the name for the school on March 29, 2022.

The Prairie Sky name recognizes that the community of Skyview Ranch is located on the easternmost boundary of the City of Calgary, immediately beside prairie lands with immense views of the open sky.

The Board of Trustees selected Prairie Sky School after gathering stakeholder input through a school naming committee and a community survey. The committee is comprised of CBE Trustees, parents and/or community representatives and members of CBE Administration.

Prairie Sky School will offer kindergarten to Grade 8 programming when it opens in the 2022-23 school year, and kindergarten to Grade 9 programming in 2023-24. The school will serve students living in the community of Skyview Ranch.
