About Us

With deep gratitude and respect, we are honoured to be learning and unlearning on the ancestral and unceded lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) & səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh Nation).

General Brock Elementary is located on Main Street, right in the centre of Vancouver. The school is comprised of three separate buildings – ‘A’ building is the original 1911 Brock School House, ‘B’ building is home to four classrooms and the ‘C’ building is where the school office, library, music room, four classrooms, multipurpose room and gym are located. The playground is composed of a large gravel field, a full primary play structure, a stone outdoor classroom and two playground areas on the school's intermediate side.

There are 250 students enrolled at Brock. The classes range from Kindergarten to Grade 7 and are organized into 12 divisions. The students like to take advantage of our well-stocked library and participate in the many sports and clubs offered. Staff volunteer to coach and sponsor sports teams such as cross-country, soccer, volleyball, basketball, badminton, and track and field. Students can also join the Chess Club, Rainbow Club, Writers Club, Choir and Student Council. In addition, our grade 6/7 students build their leadership skills by serving as Peer Helpers. This year, Brock is involved in creating our very own Brock musical on the topic of friendship. The Writer’s Club is writing the script, the Choir is learning the songs, and the Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is supporting it financially. We are looking forward to a May 2024 performance.

In addition to the mainstream Kindergarten to Grade 7 program, we are home to four district programs: Elementary Learning Support Program (ELSP), Social Emotional Learning Class (SELC), Intensive French for Grades 6 and 7 and the Challenge Centre. The ELSP and SELC programs support children with diverse learning abilities and students with social and emotional needs, respectively. Intensive French offers an accelerated Core French language program alongside a compacted curriculum. The Challenge Centre provides a variety of short-term enrichment opportunities for students across the district.

Brock has developed strong relationships with Tupper Secondary School, the Community Schools Team as well as our community partner, Little Mountain Neighbourhood House (LMNH). These partnerships offer a variety of after-school programs for students. We also have onsite after school care provided by Brock Junction.

Brock is fortunate to have a strong parent community and an involved Parent Advisory Council (PAC). The PAC fundraises to support many school initiatives, equipment, and programs. This year the PAC purchased new technology for classrooms, creating parity between classes. We are thankful for their support.
