The Saanich School District is a highly successful K-12 district just outside the BC capital city of Victoria. We are medium-sized in relation to other districts in BC and across North America, with 8000 students in eight grade K-5 elementary schools, three grade 6-8 middle schools and three neighourhood grade 9-12 secondary schools, plus a world-class distributed learning school SIDES (the South Island Distance Education School) and our alternate/continuing education school ILC (Individual Learning Centre). We also have a Children’s Development Centre with highly specialized programs and services. Our district is modern and innovative with teachers who enthusiastically support children with new, well researched approaches for literacy, numeracy, technology, the arts, athletics, service and more. Our students and teachers are supported by a state of the art technology plan and countless programs that connect children to their communities and the world.
