Sənsisyustən House of Learning is Accepting Applications

We invite you to experience the beauty that is our place, culture and community.

Sənsisyustən House of Learning is a Group 2 Independent Elementary School with the BC Ministry of Education. We teach current BC curriculum with an integration of Okanagan Syilx perspectives. The syilx/Okanagan translation of Sənsisyustən is “the place where you become anything you choose to be.” The school, designed after a traditional native pit-house, lends itself to interactive learning in a warm and nurturing environment. 

Our school edifies the Seven Teachings: humility, honesty, bravery, respect, love, truth, and wisdom. Teachers, staff, Elders, and School Board Members strive to make that a reality for students.
What we offer:

  • A balance of academics with Okanagan Language and culture taught in every grade.
  • Cultural field trips such as tea picking, gathering sage, and digging bitterroot.
  • Small class sizes, allowing for more one on one teaching time.
  • A Learning Assistance Program for children who may require additional support.
  • A school-wide discipline program that promotes social responsibility.
