This lively middle school is located in the lovely Peace River Valley, nestled in the city of Fort St. John. Dr Kearney Middle School has a diverse population of 525 students currently enrolled in grades 7-9, with approximately 20% of the school’s students of First Nations descent. The school’s staff includes 33 teachers, over 20 support staff, a principal and vice-principal, special education personnel, a part-time librarian, and counseling services. Dr. Kearney Middle School also has a Life Skills program for students with physical and developmental difficulties.

For the current 2017/2018 academic year, Dr. Kearney Middle School will focus on students’ literacy skills, improving and developing student skills in mathematics, as well as the school’s excellent programs in the visual and performing arts, their regionally-acclaimed 1st Nations Programs, and their wide variety of student extracurricular activities. The school will soon be receiving a share of just over $106,000 in grant funds that were put aside by the British Columbia government; a total of a little over $11 million was put into a community gaming grant that will go to fund extracurricular activities in schools around the province, including several in the Fort St. John area (Dr. Kearney Middle and North Peace Secondary School being included to receive a portion of the grant funds). The grant funds are supposed to be used for things like sports and playground equipment, musical instruments, and anything else that the schools would use toward extracurricular activities for students.

The school does have sports programs already available for students to participate in, including hockey and more to be put into place with the above mentioned grant money to be used for sports and extracurricular activities.

Dr. Kearney Middle School has a supportive Parent Advisory Council (also known as PAC), which is a group of parents who want to be active in their children’s schools and education progress. Members of Parent Advisory Councils are generally voted into the organization at the beginning of the new school year, and duties of members can include fundraising coordination and planning, attending meetings, voting on school issues like personnel and budgets, and planning and assisting with classroom activities, special programs and events, and field trips. Being a part of local schools’ Parent Advisory Councils is an important role that most current members believe that by taking an active role in their children’s education in turn sets up the child to be more successful in the classroom. Ann Whitaker, President of the British Columbia Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils (BCCPAC), has said of taking part in PACs: “Parent involvement creates a sense of ownership and confidence in the education system.” The BCCPAC is a volunteer council that supports and oversees about 800 Parent Advisory Councils and District Parent Advisory Councils across British Columbia.
