Our Communities


Our communities are culturally diverse and rural communities in the Similkameen Valley (Hedley to Cawston) and the south Okanagan Valley (Okanagan Falls to the US border).

Our local economy is based on fruit and ground crop farming, ranching, forestry, wineries and vineyards, light manufacturing and tourism.

Residents in our communities experience a small town environment, picturesque rural communities, moderate winters with minimal snow and hot sunny summers. Our landscape and climate provide opportunities for outdoor activities such as camping/hiking, water and snow sports, golfing, biking, hunting and fishing. We offer the best of two worlds: quiet community living in close proximity to a number of urban centers.

Our district serves students in Okanagan Falls, Oliver, Osoyoos, Keremeos, Cawston and Hedley. 

Enjoy the strong community spirit, both within and outside our schools. 

Experience an easygoing lifestyle with an abundance of natural beauty of the south Okanagan and Similkameen!
