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 is founded on the principles of global awareness and cultural understanding. The program is somewhat selective, as it limits the number of students from any one country, and admits only 75 students in total. A variety of programs are offered for high school students, as well as intensive English as a Second Language (ESL) programs, and vocational programs.
