School District No. 58 (Nicola-Similkameen) serves the two communities of Merritt and Princeton, six First Nations Bands, the Métis community, and the Conayt Friendship Society. In our district, we recognize that we learn, teach and work on the ancestral, traditional and unceded territories of the Nle?eKepmx and Syilx people, and we acknowledge our Métis communities and their contributions to the Aboriginal ways of being, knowing and doing.  The mountains, lakes and valleys within the district make it a natural setting for fabulous, year-round outdoor activities. We offer a warm small-town atmosphere where relationships are fundamental to our success. 

Merritt, where the office is located, is in the Nicola Valley and is the hub of a highway system that links Kamloops, Kelowna, and the Lower Mainland. Ranching, forestry, health, local government, and tourism are the major industries in the valley. 

Our Strategic Plan has a “Success for ALL Learners” focus, supported by a dedicated staff, engaged stakeholders and partners who share a genuine commitment to the district.  The district offers rich programming to just over 2075 students, 48% of whom are Indigenous. We are proud of our ongoing work towards Truth and Reconciliation.
