Peace Wapiti Public School Division
Peace Wapiti Public School Division provides service to approximately 6,000 Kindergarten to Grade 12 students in 36 schools, including nine Hutterite colony schools, two outreach schools, an online school, and educational programming at a group home facility.
The system provides schooling for students from Horse Lake First Nation and Kelly Lake Indigenous Community. Excluding the colony schools, the smallest school has an enrollment of 41 students and the largest has 571 students. Alternative Education provides flexible programming to more than 90 students.
In the smaller and more rural high schools, some reliance is placed on distance education programs to augment the basic in-school offerings. Specialty programs exist to meet local needs.
PWPSD employs the full-time equivalent of 375 teachers and 600 non-teaching staff. The Transportation Department manages 100 bus routes. In addition, PWPSD employs a considerable number of part-time and casual personnel, making it one of the largest employers in the Peace Country.
