Regional Diversity

Chilliwack offers a small-town feel with big-city facilities. Close to Vancouver in the beautiful Fraser Valley, Chilliwack is where you come for the great opportunities and stay for the lifestyle.

Specialty Programs

Our emphasis is on the basic curriculum of reading, writing, mathematics, social studies, science and physical education. In keeping with today’s changing needs, computer technology, fine arts, personal planning and many other programs are woven in to the curriculum. In addition, secondary schools offer a comprehensive range of studies including literature, drama, choral, band, art, career preparation, work experience and home economics.

Community Culture

A strength of our school district is the positive working relationship with many community groups.  Their input is respected, and useful.
