Welcome to Horace Allen School, which is a part of the Livingstone Range School Division. Our school proudly serves K-3 students and their families from the communities of Coleman, Blairmore, Frank, Bellevue and Hillcrest. Originally built as a High School in 1963, HAS is named for Mr. Horace Allen, the school’s first principal and a longtime educator in Coleman. Over the years, HAS has undergone several renovations, the most recent one in 2003. Our school now features improvements which make it appropriate for a K-3 school population.
HAS serves approximately 180 students and families of the Crowsnest Pass and is supported by a caring community, involved parents and an exceptional staff. We are committed to educating the whole child in a positive and safe learning environment. HAS staff look forward to an exciting and rewarding year working with students, families, and the community of CNP.
