Salt Spring Island to the other Gulf Islands, Mount Baker and the North Cascades

The Gulf Islands School District is located in the Salish Sea (Strait of Georgia) and is home to five island communities: Salt Spring, Pender, Galiano, Mayne, and Saturna islands.

The District currently serves approximately 1500 students. It is proud of its quality programming including successful Indigenous program, thriving International Program, performing arts academy, ecological, nature-based, and late French Immersion programs.

We place students at the heart of our work and aspire to the values of trust, responsibility, opportunity, sustainability, collaboration, and diversity.

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.
