In a letter to parents and guardians seen by CTV, principal Jen Gorkoff said the student had been "stabbed in the neck" and the suspect was "not associated" with Jack James High School.
Gorkoff added the incident took place just outside of the school and said the lockdown following the incident had lasted for around 30 minutes.
All other students were safe and classes were able to go ahead as planned for the rest of the afternoon, the letter said.
"Our priority at Jack James High School is to maintain a safe and caring school environment for all students and staff," Gorkoff said.
Calgary Board Of Education was contacted by Narcity but had not responded at the time of publication.
