Situated in scenic Fort Smith on the banks of the Slave River, JBT School is a K-6 school with 280 students. Students and staff focus on three simple rules; respect, safety and pride. Literacy is a primary focus as all students are active in the Rufus’ Reading Club. We also pride ourselves on our open door policy and our school benefits from the parent/community support. At JBT, the school helps to promote futures through a number of diverse programs, and activities, including: culture camps, primary activity days, literacy activities, student achievement awards and parent council.
