Welcome to School District No. 22 (Vernon).
Located in the Okanagan Valley of south central British Columbia, School District No. 22 (Vernon) serves the communities of Vernon, Coldstream, Lavington, Lumby, and Cherryville. As a dynamic public education system, the District provides excellent educational services to approximately 8,350 students. These services include a strong International Program, a High Performance Program, a vibrant French Immersion Program, a growing Montessori Program, new and exciting Distributive Learning Courses, a strong Aboriginal presence, and opportunities for Trades Training and Secondary Apprenticeships.
The District’s motto, “A Great Place to Learn” epitomizes the wonderfully rich opportunities our geographical location offers our students and staff as they pursue life long learning in their communities. It is the combined effort of students, parents, employees and community members that ensures the individual success of every student in our School District.
Eight days filled with more than 80 different, free- low cost activities throughout the community and within schools. Yoga, bowling, magic, fishing, BMX, story-time, science, happening everywhere in hopes of encouraging young and old to unplug from their screens and come out and play!
