Fort St. John’s Bert Bowes Middle School—located close to the picturesque Peace River Valley—currently has around 500 students enrolled (for the 2017/2018 academic year) in grades 7-9 and has a staff that includes 25 teachers, 9 support staff, 2 counselors, a part-time librarian, and a principal and vice-principal. The school is proud to offer a band program for students, as well as a French Immersion program. Bert Bowes Middle School (“Home of the Bulldogs”) also has access through their school district to services like a teacher for the visually impaired, a school psychologist, learning resource disability teacher, an E.L.L. specialist teacher, and a teacher for the deaf and hard of hearing.

Bert Bowes Middle School is part of School District #60 Peace River North; the board office is physically located in the city of Fort St. John, but the district also serves surrounding areas, including Buick, Baldonnel, Taylor, Hudson’s Hope, Prespatou, and Charlie Lake. The district also has the distinction of being the first in British Columbia to initiate a student laptop computer program, allowing students in grades 6-7 to get laptops for personal and school use.

The extensive sports and extracurricular activity programs at the school include basketball, volleyball, track and field, golf, and cross-country running. The school’s main focus for the 2017/2018 academic year is on “developing the literacy and numeracy skills of our students, and social responsibility skills”, with specific programs in place including Peer Helping, Leadership, as well as Reading Intervention and At-Risk Student programs.

Bert Bowes Middle is also pleased to have a very active Parent Advisory Committee and many parent volunteers who help with various school and classroom activities. The Parent Advisory Committee consists of parents who want to help support students and play an active role in daily school operations.

The middle school is proud to sponsor a “Students for Change” group that is associated with the internationally known “Free the Children” program. This program, founded by Craig and Marc Kielburger in 1995, focuses on youth empowerment and currently operates programs in over 8,000 schools across Canada, the United States, and United Kingdom. Bert Bowes Middle School’s “Students for Change” group has participated in initiatives like “We Scare Hunger” (gathering over 500 food items that went to the Women’s Resource Society in Fort St. John), the “We are Silent” initiative (where students of the group were silent for an entire day in honor of those who have no voices, including animal rights and children who are unable to attend school), and an upcoming initiative, “We Bake for Change!”.
