About Us

Abbotsford School District

The Abbotsford School District was established on April 12, 1946. Servicing a wide and dispersed audience within the city of Abbotsford (pop. 134,000), our District has 46 schools that are attended by over 19,200 full and part time students at 30 elementary schools, 8 middle schools, 1 combined middle-secondary school, and 7 secondary schools. In addition to a variety of District Programs, we offer a virtual school, an Aboriginal education centre, an International student program, continuing education courses and an annual summer school.

The Abbotsford School District is the 8th largest school district in the province. As the largest employer in the city, we employ over 2,200 full and part time teaching and support staff who are committed to helping students succeed.

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.
