Principal's Message:


Welcome!  At the Bruce School, we have three very important values that guide our work every day.  They form our mission statement, which is below:
At the Bruce School:
·         We are tenacious about a college-bound future
·         We act with dignity
·         We make our families and community proud
Our future begins here!
Families are a key part of our belief system, and we invite you to join us any time.  We have Monthly Parent Meetings, report card nights, and a host of other opportunities for you to take part in your child’s education.  Please stop by any time with questions or concerns.  We look forward to seeing you soon!
The Bruce building

The Alexander B. Bruce School was built in 1954 and educates students in grades 3-8. We have approximately 620 students in the building and approximately 51 teachers. Our primary focus is rigorous instruction, parent engagement and a strong school culture.
