We aim to prepare students for our ever-changing world by equipping them with creative and critical thinking skills, core academics, and the values of respect, honesty, and compassion for all.

School Context

Where are we?

Clearview School is located 47 km northeast of Fort St. John in a farming community;
however, many families are also employed by the oil and gas industry.  Located beside the
school is an arena, which is used by the school and the region. There is a strong sense of
tradition, family, and community, because many generations of families continue to live in
the area and have attended Clearview.

Who are we?

We are a K-9 school with an experienced staff that includes a principal, ten teachers and
seven support staff (clerical, teaching assistants, Aboriginal Support Worker and
custodians). We have seven divisions of students and the entire student population (136
students including 30 aboriginal students and 6 ELL students) is bussed.  After grade
nine, students attend North Peace Secondary School Main Campus or ELC campus in
Fort St. John.

What’s the impact of parent support?

Our parents are involved and committed to their children’s education.  Many parent
volunteers help out with classroom and school activities and we have an active and
organized Parents Advisory Council.  In addition to their regular meetings and financial
support, they help plan and organize several events and fundraisers throughout the
year.  Several parents cook our hot lunch program, which provides a hot healthy lunch
for students twice a month. We also have a group of parents who make hot dogs for the
students every Wednesday. Parents are an integral part of the school community and
the school is an integral part of community life.

What do we do here?

The students are very active in sports and extra-curricular activities both with the school
and the community.  Physical Education is an important aspect for the students at all grade
levels. In addition, students also take part in district science fair, district speech contest,
and skills Canada competitions. We provide a differentiated learning environment for our
learners and have been able to begin offering more alternate seating and working options.
Technology is becoming more and more prevalent for both the staff and students. We have
Smart boards, Ipad Minis, laptops, desktops, SMART Document Cameras, 3-D printers, and
SMART student response clickers throughout the school. The Learning Centre opened in
the fall of 2016 to enable our students to explore and to create. We are continuing to
develop this area. Furthermore, the school values its close partnerships with the oil and gas
companies in the area.  They provide not only some financial and material support but they
also commit time to help out with various projects and events.
