The Gulf Islands School District enrolls students throughout the five Southern Gulf Islands. The Islands are located at the centre of a triangle between Greater Vancouver, Nanaimo, and Victoria.
There are six schools on Salt Spring Island:
Fernwood Elementary is on the North end, Fulford Elementary is on the South end, and based in Ganges, are:
64GO, Gulf Islands Secondary, Phoenix Elementary, and Salt Spring Elementary.
There is one school on each of the other four islands:
Galiano, Mayne, Pender, and Saturna.
There are no roads between the islands. Students and staff travel by water taxi and by ferry.
