School District No. 58 (Nicola-Similkameen) serves the two communities of Merritt and Princeton, six First Nations Bands, the Mtis 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 Mtis 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.
Princeton, in the Similkameen Valley, is beautifully situated in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, on a major highway connecting the lower mainland to the Okanagan Valley. Forestry, mining, tourism, agriculture, and ranching are mainstays of the local economy.
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.
