Glenbrook Middle School

Glenbrook Middle School

Ecole Glenbrook Middle School is a middle school in New Westminster, British Columbia that opened in September, 2000. A middle school comprised of grades 6, 7 & 8, Glenbrook is a dual-track English and late French immersion school with 660 students and 60 staff.

Ecole Glenbrook Middle School was named after the area of New Westminster in which it was built, an area that was once home to a brook that fed into the Fraser River near the former British Columbia Penitentiary. Glenbrook Ravine Park, located across McBride Boulevard to the south and east of the school, stills bears evidence of this brook. The neighbourhood surrounding the school, Glenbrook North, also shares this name.

Glenbrook is a community school and was built in partnership with the City of New Westminster. The City has created Terry Hughes Park adjacent to the school. The park playing fields and the school gymnasium and facilities are used cooperatively by students and by community-based athletic organizations. Terry Hughes was a courageous young man who, in November, 1959, passed away at the tender age of 18 attempting to save a young girl from drowning in the Fraser River.

Ecole Glenbrook Middle School (GMS) is fed by students from four elementary schools - F. W. Howay Elementary, Hume Park Elementary, Richard McBride Elementary and Herbert Spencer Elementary. It receives students from across New Westminster into its late French immersion program. GMS students move on to New Westminster Secondary School when they begin grade nine.
