Coast Mountains School District is located in the northwest of British Columbia and encompasses the traditional territories of three aboriginal nations: the Gitksan, the Haisla, and the Tsimshian. The Gitksan‐Wet’suwet’en Nation of the Hazelton area is made up of seven band communities consisting of Gitanmaax, Gitanyow, Gitsegukla, Gitwangak, Glen Vowell, Hagwilget and Kispiox located through the Hazelton communities and on up the Kispiox Valley. The Haisla Nation is centered in Kitamaat Village and the Tsimshian Nation has two distinct band communities in the Terrace and Thornhill areas.

The school district also serves the learning needs of a significant urban Aboriginal population in the community of Terrace and numerous students of Nisga’a heritage from the Nass Valley also attend school in Terrace. The richness of our local First Nations culture and history contributes to all our schools in a very positive way as Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal learners benefit from the diversity surrounding them.

The school district includes the main communities of the Hazeltons, Kitimat, Kitwanga, Stewart, Terrace and Thornhill. The school board office is located in Terrace with Kitimat a forty‐five minute drive from the office, Kitwanga one hour, the Hazeltons one and a half hours, and Stewart three and a half hours.

Coast Mountains School District serves a student population of approximately 4,500 students in nineteen schools including three alternate programs and a trades learning centre that encompasses dual-credit, distance learning and continuing education programs, with over 800 employees (casual employees included). The operating budget is approximately $53 million and the geographical area covered by the district is of equivalent size to the country of Finland
