At Charlie Lake Elementary School we strive to create a safe learning environment where all students can achieve academic confidence and competence. Our students and staff are caring, critical thinkers and independent problem solvers. Lakers are ready to work, ready to learn and ready for life.


Charlie Lake Elementary School is a semi rural K-6 school situated 10 minutes from the community of Fort St. John, which is located in the Peace River Valley. We enroll a population of 330 students. The majority of our students are bussed. Our school has a staffing complement of teachers and support staff, including a principal, vice-principal, learning assistance teacher, Reading Recovery teacher, school counselor and librarian.


Charlie Lake Elementary enjoyed a week with Rik Leaf in the 2017-2018 school year in which a school song was created.  Part of our mission statement was included in this representation of our school community. PAC is an active and important part of our school community, supporting many of our endeavors.  PAC supports our sports programs, yearly arts and author residencies, and our Applied Design and Skills curriculum. The Hot Lunch program is organized and run by our PAC. Our Laker community will enjoy a new climbing wall this year, which was sponsored by PEMBINA. Focusing on shared leadership, both with students and staff, is an integral part of our framework.
