In addition, the District has a virtual school, an Aboriginal education centre, an International student program, and offers continuing education courses and an annual summer school.
Besides being one of the fastest growing communities in BC and Canada, Abbotsford is also the third most ethnically and culturally diverse community in Canada. As the largest employer in the city, the Abbotsford School District employs approximately 2,100 full and part time teaching and support staff who are committed to providing learners of all ages and abilities with a range of choices and the best possible educational support.
The Abbotsford School District honours the traditional territory of the Sumas First Nation and Matsqui First Nation on which our schools are located. It is with respectful consideration that the programs and services that are provided to students and families are sensitive to the cultural protocols of these two communities.
