SD64 …a community of Learners
The Gulf Islands School District, with just over 1700 students in 11 schools, is a place where learning happens everywhere. It is more than just what goes on inside the walls of the schools; it is about interconnectedness. By blurring the lines between school and community, we have made it more obvious that learning is a natural state and that it is happening all the time.
What binds this community of learners together? Natural curiosity and a passion for inquiry. Each year, more and more of our learners are engaged with their education at the design level, co-constructing meaningful educational experiences with their teachers and drawing on the greater community and their families for inspiration, expertise, and support. Our learners pursue unique learning paths that are designed not only to be engaging, but also to foster the development of core skills and competencies.
