School District 64 is made up of the five island communities in the Southern Gulf Islands of British Columbia. The Gulf Islands enjoy Canada’s mildest climate with cool wet winters and warm dry summers. The area is home to large numbers of artists, trees, marine life and spectacular scenery.
The Gulf Islands School District has eleven schools, six of which are on Salt Spring Island. The School Board office is located in Ganges, also on Salt Spring.
Just over 600 students attend Gulf Islands Secondary, the District’s largest school. The school houses a large International Education Program and the Gulf Islands School of Performing Arts. The other schools are smaller, one with as few as 6 to 12 students.
