School Overview

Kitasoo Community School is located at the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest in Klemtu, BC, a remote fly-in First Nation community. Our mission is to ensure that school programs and services enhance the academic, emotional, physical and social well-being of all students.

Our school

We have small class sizes in a school of around 55 students, with an adult to student ratio of four students to one adult. Our language program is revitalizing local language and culture, and we offer the Supporting Emerging Aboriginal Stewards program to provide opportunities for all to learn from the land and gain pride and confidence in their culture and heritage.

We provide excellent Tier 1 instruction in the classrooms and ensure the delivery of well-planned curriculum and varied teaching strategies. Additional interventions help us support students to achieve success and raise reading and math to grade level. We maximize student learning  in a safe, caring, healthy and nurturing environment.
