Saanich Schools - Great Places to Learn


The Saanich School District has nearly 8,000 students in eight elementary schools, three middle schools, and three secondary schools. In addition, the District also provides programming at a Children's Development Centre and two Individual Learning Centres.  We also have one of the province's most successful International Student programs.

In Saanich, everything we do is driven by a desire to see students achieve success and personal growth. Our district's success is measured not only by our students' academic accomplishments but by how well we inspire them to reach their full potential and be outstanding citizens locally and across the globe.  Our academic programs reflect our continued emphasis on building vibrant learning opportunities to support the diverse aspirations of our students.  We place a strong emphasis on the learner's social and emotional health ensuring our students develop and demonstrate respect for themselves, their environment, our local indigenous cultures and each other. Our graduation rates are among the highest in British Columbia with our students consistently rating near the top of provincial and international assessments.  

We place a high priority on the important relationships we have formed with our local communities including the W̱SÁNEĆ First Nation on whose traditional territory we live, work and learn.  Together we build strong schools where our students thrive and develop.  Saanich Schools represent the best of teaching and learning all within a culturally diverse community supported by caring professionals and families.

We are proud of the achievements of our students, both within our system and beyond.  As leaders of tomorrow, Saanich School District graduates can be found in post-secondary institutions locally and internationally furthering their education.  Building the future leaders of tomorrow is our focus and our passion.
