Sooke School District has approximately 11,000 students and serves the communities of Sooke, Port Renfrew, Metchosin, Highlands, Langford and Colwood. Surrounded by forests, ocean, mountains and lakes, we are located a short distance from Victoria, the capital city of the province of British Columbia.
We are a busy school district and unlike many other districts in our province, we are increasing in size! In fact, we anticipate growing by more than 300 students per year for the next 15 years.
We honour student voice and choice through engaging, purposeful and experiential learning in a safe and respectful community.
