school profiles

Please note | we’re building a new interactive mapping tool to make it easier to find schools using a familiar web interface, and will no longer be using the maps on this page. Because of that, these interactive maps show the boundaries for the 2013-14 school year, and may not be accurate for the 2014-15 school year. For current information, please refer to the “find a school by address” tool to find your designated school, see the list of schools by residential district and grade, or visit the school profile of the school you’re interested in to see the walk zone map in PDF. Thanks for your understanding, and we look forward to sharing our new site with you soon.

About the School

The school was built in 1983 and is situated on 10.86 acres. The school has 20 classrooms, one gymnasium, two computer labs, industrial arts, band, art and home economics rooms.

About School Name

Wilma Hansen graduated from the University of Alberta in 1926 with a bachelor of commerce degree. Her conviction that cooperation between parents and teachers was vital to education led to involvement with several home and school councils throughout Alberta.

Elected to the Calgary Public School Board in 1961, Wilma Hansen represented the Board on many key committees including the Citizen's Centennial and the development of school libraries and schools for the developmentally disabled. When she retired from the Board in 1967, she was awarded a life membership in the Alberta School Trustees Association.

Her tireless service was recognized when she was made a doctor of the University of Calgary in 1969
