Nestled in the northeast edge of historic Fort St. John, Bert Ambrose Elementary School is surrounded by a scenic park and outdoor skating rink and has a current enrollment of 365 students in grades K-6 with 9% being First Nations children. The school’s motto is “Children, Teachers, and Parents Creating a Learning Partnership!”, and the staff at Bert Ambrose include 17 teachers, 12 support workers, plus the principal, vice-principal, reading intervention teacher, a part-time librarian, and 14 divisions. The school also receives services like special education and counseling from School District #60 via itinerant teachers and counselors who travel to Bert Ambrose Elementary as needed.

The staff at Bert Ambrose Elementary is proud to be a child-focused school, focusing on learning with a collaborative staff and supportive parenting community, ensuring every child has a nurturing, welcoming learning environment. Bert Ambrose Elementary also participates in an Early Learning program called “Ready, Set, Learn!”, which is sponsored by the Ministry of Education as well as the Ministry of Children & Family Development and the Ministry of Health, enables schools and communities to reach out to and provide information to families and young children. The goals of the initiative include making early connections between schools, communities, and families with young children; provide families with invaluable information about local schools and contacts in the community; and give schools the opportunity to showcase their schools and their benefits. All “Ready, Set, Learn!” activities and events are put together by each school who participates in the initiative, and just a few of the activities organized by Bert Ambrose Elementary include “Families in Motion”, reading and story hours for young children and toddlers, and more.

Bert Ambrose Elementary is part of School District #60 Peace River North, which serves all of Fort St. John, as well as surrounding areas such as Baldonnel, Charlie Lake, Hudson’s Hope, Taylor, and Buick. There are currently 21 schools that are part of School District #60, which include elementary schools, secondary schools, and learning centres. A unique and interesting fact about School District #60 is that it was the first British Columbia district to implement a laptop computer program, allowing all students in grades six and seven to receive laptops for use at home and at school.

Sports programs at Bert Ambrose Elementary include cross-country skiing, basketball, volleyball, cross-country running, and soccer. There is also a band program offered to students in 5th grade.

The Parent Advisory Council at Bert Ambrose Elementary is comprised of parents who want to help support their children and other students, as well as offering input on general school operations. The supportive school staff and parent members of the Parent Advisory Council come together to ensure the health, safety, and education of the students are always upheld.
