Nelson Mandela High School Campus 

This project is a new 16,630 m² high school in northeast Calgary.

CALGARY, AB

Specialized CTS areas for transitioning students to Red Seal trades include an aviation hangar, mechanics bays, welding and painting booths, electrical engineering labs, an extensive culinary kitchen, as well as conventional learning spaces and laboratories for environmental science.

The Learning Commons is the technological and creative hub of the school. The goal of the Learning Commons is to enable all students to be engaged thinkers and ethical citizens with an entrepreneurial spirit. The concept of a Learning Commons is a shift in thinking from a library as a physical space that is a repository of books, to an inclusive, flexible, learner-centred, physical and/or virtual space for collaboration, inquiry, imagination, and creative play to expand and deepen learning.

The Learning Commons approach functions best when learning experiences in the school community are coordinated to support student learning outcomes through collaborative planning, teaching, and assessing.

A 1,825m² performance gymnasium was added to the school two years later.

A Learning Commons is an agile and responsive learning and teaching environment available to individuals and groups to use for multiple, often simultaneous, purposes.

It supports literacy, numeracy, competency development and student learning outcomes through access to, and instruction in, the effective use of print and digital resources.
