Excellence in Student Learning

Our schools provide a safe and caring environment where kids are comfortable and confident. Children and students at risk are quickly identified and their needs are addressed through specialty programs. The Fort McMurray Public School team works hard to ensure every student is prepared for post-secondary education.

Character Education

This includes an emphasis on character education and citizenship among our students. We believe that there is more to school than learning about the ABC’s and 123’s. We are proud to note that many of our schools follow internationally recognized character education models including Tribes, Seven Habits and The Leader in Me. All our schools are grounded in codes of conduct for students that emphasize inclusion and self-discipline. FMPSD students are also regularly involved in numerous charitable causes including food drives, helping the homeless, and helping the needy overseas. We trust that these school led initiatives will serve to raise the social consciousness of our students as well as develop their moral outlook. FMPSD is made up of students from all backgrounds who come together in our schools to observe and practice the universal values of respect, inclusion and doing what is good for your neighbour.
