Coast Mountains School District 82 has a rich tapestry of cultures, backgrounds, learning styles and needs.  Located in the northwest of British Columbia our school district encompasses the traditional territories of four Indigenous nations, the Gitxsan, the Haisla, the Nisga’a and the Tsimshian, and the main communities of the Hazeltons, Kitimat, Stewart, Terrace and Thornhill.

The Gitxsan territory of the Hazelton area is made up of seven nations including the Gitanmaax, Gitanyow, Gitsegukla, Gitwangak, Glen Vowell, Hagwilget and Kispiox located through the Hazelton communities and the Kispiox Valley.  The Haisla territory is centered in Kitamaat Village and the Tsimshian territory has two distinct First Nations band communities consisting of Kitselas and Kitsumkalum in the Terrace and Thornhill areas.  The richness of the local Indigenous culture and history contributes to all our schools in a very positive way as both Indigenous and non-Indigenous learners benefit from the diversity surrounding them.

The School District serves a student population of approximately 4,100 students in nineteen schools including three alternate programs and a trades learning centre that encompasses dual-credit, distance learning and continuing education programs, with 800 employees (casual employees included).  The operating budget is approximately $66 million, and the geographical area covered by the district is of equivalent size to the country of Finland.

The Board of Education Office is located in Terrace with Kitimat a fortyfive-minute drive from the office, Kitwanga a one-hour drive, the Hazeltons one and a half hours, and Stewart three and a half hours.  Together we are a caring, inclusive, and committed learning community dedicated to supporting each of our unique learners so they will have the skills and competencies they need to be productive and successful citizens in a rapidly changing world.
