Deroche Elementary School

Deroche Elementary School is a small, rural, K-6 School located in the small community of Deroche, British Columbia, Canada. It is located on North Deroche Road just off the Lougheed Highway between Mission and Agassiz, BC. Our staff and teachers are committed to providing the best learning experience in a supportive environment – we love to see each child grow! Our setting is beautiful with the school nestled at the foot of Deroche Mountain. Children enjoy paved playing areas around the building and a large fenced field with playground on the north side.

The student body is generally around 70 children. Almost 80% of our students are of aboriginal heritage. They come predominately from the Leq’a:mel and Scowlitz First Nations. (See our Aboriginal Connections for more information.) Our students come from a wide area around Deroche: west from Nicomen Island to east from Lake Errock. Some are driven to school, a few even walk, but many take a convenient district school bus.

We welcome new and returning families to our learning community!


Bus Transportation Registration for 2016-17

Families are advised that registration of students for bus transportation for the 2016-17 school year will begin on May 3, 2016. In order to ride a district school bus, all new and returning riders must complete a registration form each year.

Registration can be initiated by using our online bus registration form, or in person at the Transportation Department located at 33919 Dewndney Trunk Road, during the business hours of 9:00 am to 4:00 pm (Monday to Friday).

Students who qualify to use district transportation services but have not registered by June 30th, or students who are cross boundary students, are not guaranteed tranportation as it will depend on availability of service.

The Tranportation office will be closed between July 1st and August 19, 2016. Online registrations may still be submitted during this time.
