District Overview

Mission, British Columbia is nestled on a southern coastal mountain slope, overlooking the lush valley of the mighty Fraser River. Ideally situated, Mission is located an hour east of Vancouver and just a 15-minute drive from the U.S. border. Mission was originally inhabited by the Sto:lo First Nations people, and today this rapidly growing and dynamic centre is home to a population of some 38,000 residents. Come see why Mission is “the Jewel in the Valley”. Mission Public Schools is dedicated to providing our students with an educational environment that nurtures the development of an Educated Citizen. Our community is on the unceded ancestral territory of the Stó:lo people.  We serve a diverse population of students from K to 12 benefiting from local knowledge keepers and thriving Indigenous communities. Our reputation for safe and caring schools  welcomes students and parents into an educational partnership focused on student achievement

Mission Public Schools values: 

  • Collaborative Communities
  • Empathic Teams
  • First People’s Principles of Learning
  • Inclusive Learning Environments
  • Innovative Educators

Draw for Employees

We humbly work and learn on the Traditional, Ancestral, Unceded, and Shared lands of the Stó:lō people, of Sq’éwlets, Leq’á:mel, Sema:th, Matheqwí and Qwó:ltl’el, peoples of this land since time immemorial. We appreciate and embrace the vital role of all Indigenous peoples, groups, organizations, and associations residing on and within these lands. We also acknowledge and share traditional teachings of Indigenous Elders and Knowledge Keepers and the sharing of Indigenous Knowledge and Worldviews in the curriculum and throughout our workspaces.

Why Mission?

Mission Public Schools benefits from being a medium-sized district with rural and urban schools. We are large enough to provide a variety of programs and services and small enough to build meaningful relationships with our students, parents, colleagues, and other stakeholders.

The district is focused on following the Strategic Plan, which sets the direction for the organization and supports student learning.
