Division Re-entry Strategy


Read our COVID-19 Division Re-entry Strategy for information about how we’re welcoming students and staff back into schools this September.We’re preparing to welcome students and staff back into schools this September.

   

Welcome

John D. Bracco school has served the Clareview area since 1992. Students come from our community feeder schools including Bannerman, Belmont, Fraser, Kirkness, Homesteader, Overlanders, Sifton, and Horse Hill Elementary Schools.  

Architecturally, our building is one of the most attractive schools in Edmonton Public Schools. Although an attractive, well maintained building is a positive feature, we believe that it is our staff and our relationships with students and parents that is our strength!

In the three years they spend with us, students will be preparing for high school and the programs that will determine their choices for further education. Our dedicated staff creates a safe and caring environment in which all students are challenged to learn and achieve their personal best.

Our District Priorities are to:

Ensure every student is successful in their program of studies, with an emphasis on literacy and numeracy, to instill in each student the attributes of citizenship and good character in a learning environment that promotes health, well-being and positive relationships, and to provide a collaborative, healthy and innovative workplace that recognizes individual contributions and supports opportunities for growth and professional development.

 

Principal's Message

As the principal at John D. Bracco Junior High School, I believe strongly in surrounding our students with support through strong partnerships with staff, parents and community agencies to assist our kids in reaching their highest potential. When the entire community continues to find ways to come together, we can be the foundational supports to urge our students forward in taking risk and experiencing academic and personal growth.
 
We have over 600 students who attend John D. Bracco each day.  We offer these students a variety of programs including Pre-Advanced Placement, Soccer Institute, English Language Learner program as well as a whole host of awesome option programs including Foods, Aboriginal Studies and Martial Arts.
I look forward to meeting all of you and encourage you to bring any questions or concerns to me. The number to reach me is 780-475-1760. I look forward to hearing your ideas and learning about the John D. Bracco community. 
 
My door is always open,
Sheri Long, BA, BEd, MEd
Principal - JD Bracco School
