Crescent Heights High School is a co-educational, public high school in Calgary with an enrollment of 1,842 students in grade 10 through 12. CHHS, as it is commonly known, was established in 1915, and is truly a “school of choice” as nearly 40% of its students come from outside its immediate area. Per its website, “a tradition of excellence and a student-centered learning environment draw students from across the city to enjoy the urban educational experience. CHHS is a school where all students are provided with the support necessary for them to experience success.”
My presentation to 60 11th graders was organized by CHHS Social Studies teacher Brett Wade and arranged by Kael Sagheer, Education Coordinator of the Institute for Holocaust Education.
