    Administrative history

    Eastglen Composite High School is located on the eastern side of the Bellevue neighbourhood in Edmonton. For the first phase, the school was designed by the architects, Rule Wynn and Rule, and construction was led by the general contractors, Christensen and MacDonald. Construction of the school began in 1952, the date stone was laid in 1953, and it was officially opened in 1954. However, the first students began on March 15, 1952, transferring from Eastwood.

    When Eastglen opened in 1954, it was the second largest composite high school in Edmonton (after Victoria Composite). An addition with twelve rooms was completed in 1956, with Rule Wynn and Rule as architects and Poole Construction as general contractor. As of 2023, the school is known as Eastglen High School.
