About Mission Public Schools
The Mission Public School District acknowledges that our community is located on the Traditional, Ancestral, Unceded, and Shared lands of the Stó:lō people, of Qwó:ltl’el, Leq’á:mel, Matheqwí, Sq’éwlets, who have been inhabitants of this land since time immemorial. We benefit from local knowledge keepers and thriving Indigenous communities.
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. Come see why Mission is “the Jewel in the Valley”.
We are committed to a safe, equitable, and inclusive educational system for all students. Mission students benefit from our diverse community, skilled staff, natural environment, and local history. We are dedicated to honouring student voice and empowering our students to reach their potential. We work collaboratively with all schools to ensure that Indigenous students are successful in Mission Public Schools. While promoting and respecting the traditional territory of the Stó:lo People, we help foster an awareness and respect for all Indigenous peoples for all students and staff in Mission Public Schools.
