Briar Hill/Hounsfield Schools
Private - Public - Catholic - Charter
For many Calgary real estate buyers, there are a selection of necessary steps to be taken before thinking of buying. One of the most important factors that I have found is figuring out the assigned school that your children would be attending. (Unless you go for the private school system, where you can find a diversity of schools, such as French and Spanish inmersion, Christian schools, Charter, etc.) Choosing a Calgary school close to your home provides you with the opportunity to have more time for extra curricular activities and to have less stress and travel time... or that your kids may walk to school.
