District Overview

We believe that we are accountable to the families and communities we serve. We respect their diversity and support their involvement. We further believe that all children can learn, achieve and succeed, and that by working together with our employees, students, parents and our communities, we will enable our students to reach their greatest academic potential.

Regional Diversity

In Prince George, BC’s northern capital, you are just minutes from being fully immersed in the wonders of our natural surroundings – this is a true outdoor person’s paradise. A warm, friendly and diverse population attests to our community spirit. You can be assured of discovering a myriad of entertainment and recreational options year-round, from heritage and cultural opportunities to good old family fun. Our boundaries are congruent with those of the Regional District of Fraser Fort George.

Prince George School District employs teachers, educational leaders, management, and support staff in the communities of Prince George, Hixon, McBride, Mackenzie, Nukko Lake, and Valemount.
