History of Chief Dan George School


Our school is named after Chief Dan George, a famous Canadian First Nations spokesperson and actor.


Since opening its doors in 1985, Chief Dan George School has continued to evolve. Initially Chief Dan George was an Elementary School with a population of approximately 250 students. At one point, the school’s population grew to 650 students and seven portables were placed on the grounds. In 1999 Chief Dan George Elementary School became a Fine Arts School. After an addition and extensive renovations, Chief Dan George Middle School opened its doors in 2001. Our initial school population was 545 students. Currently we have 574 students enrolled and there are 30.5 teaching and 13 non-teaching staff members. Chief Dan George Middle School houses Early French, Late French, English and Special Needs students in grades 6, 7, 8.
