Positive relationships exist among educational partner groups, and the district makes a concerted effort to involve partner groups in discussions about student achievement. This attitude is exemplified in our mission statement, “Working together for student success.”
The communities of our district are situated along the shores of Okanagan Lake and Skaha Lake in the beautiful South Okanagan Valley. This agricultural and tourism area has a wonderful year-round climate that enables people to enjoy a variety of outdoor recreation activities. Penticton also has a vibrant and active arts community hosting many activities and festivals.
Our schools offer a comprehensive program including the humanities, mathematics, arts, sciences, fine arts, technology, languages, French immersion, Advanced Placement, physical education and English as a Second Language. The district has a proud history of excellence in athletics, fine and performing arts and academic pursuits such as debating and physics Olympics. Our international student program welcomes students from around the world.
The Okanagan is a great place to live and to learn! This is a popular tourist destination for visitors from around the world who are attracted to the world-class ski resort at Apex Mountain and the exceptional summer resorts and beaches on Okanagan and Skaha lakes.
Draw for Employees
Our district employs 800 teachers, support staff and administrators. All community partners are involved in our school and district planning and goal setting. The Okanagan Skaha Teachers’ Union has a strong District Professional Development Committee that coordinates professional development days (including two district days each August that contribute towards a two-week spring break for teachers each March).
