Spruceland Traditional Choice School is a public K-7 elementary school with a traditional focus. There is no charge to attend our traditional school. There is an expectation for parents to purchase the school uniform for their child and transport them to and from school should your family reside outside our catchement area.
In September 2011, Central Fort George Elementary was closed. The traditional choice program was moved to Spruceland Elementary combining the two original school communities.
Spruceland Traditional enrols approximately 365 students in grades K-7, and is centrally located in Prince George. We sing O Canada every morning, students and staff wear uniforms, we teach and reinforce a virtue each month, promote community service, and teach and reinforce high expectations for student behavior, and have three rules: WORK HARD; PLAY SAFELY; BE A FRIEND.
Our motto is "With Hard Work Comes Success."
Staff and students use the STARS acronym to help teach and practice social responsibility and success at the school:
S – Safety, T – Teamwork, A- Acceptance, R- Respect/Responsibility, and S- Success.
The mission of Spruceland Traditional Elementary School as a choice school is to provide our students with the knowledge, skills and attitude necessary to become responsible and capable citizens in a global world. We strive for academic excellence by focusing on the basic fundamentals of education and positive behaviour while supporting the social and emotional development of each child in collaboration with the families and other education partners.
