Our mission is to inspire a passion for learning and develop the attitudes, skills and knowledge that will enable all students to maximize their potential as positive, responsible participants in our democratic society and the global community.
We offer a small community environment with the benefit of being close to larger cities in the Lower Mainland and minutes away from the US border. Mission is surrounded by the amazing beauty of mountains and natural forests. In Mission you will find affordable housing, beautiful countryside, cultural attractions and quality recreational facilities.
Along with our core curriculum, we offer a diversity of other programs that cater to a wide range of students and their families. These include French immersion, Aboriginal education, Jump Smart pre-kindergarten, special education, trades training, continuing education and distributed learning.
Our dedicated staff are proud to be leaders in delivering quality and innovative public education. We pride ourselves on our close-knit, strong community spirit and we maintain connections with other relevant public and private organizations in the community to link students and their families to needed resources.
