Our members live in the communities of Prince Rupert, Port Edward, Metlakatla, and Hartley Bay (the Gitga’at First Nation), which are within the territory of the Ts’msyen Nation.
Our members provide K-12 education in the district’s nine schools, including its five elementary schools (K-5), one middle school (6-8), one secondary school (9-12), one alternative school (9-12), and one village school (K-12). Many of our students are Ts’msyen. Gitxsan, Nisga’a, Haida, Haisla, Wet’suwet’en, and Heiltsuk.
