Nakusp Secondary School is situated in the Village of Nakusp overlooking the scenic Arrow Lakes and Saddle Mountain. With a student population of 128 and a dedicated staff, high expectations for student learning are set and met.
NSS is well-regarded for its strong sports program with over 70% of students involved in athletics. Students at the school display a deeply-embedded commitment to the community. The Fine Arts programs – Band, Visual Arts, Theatre and Media Arts – and Applied Skills options such as Technology and Shop courses, Foods programs and Outdoor Education programs are vital aspects of our students’ learning. Students have a broad range of academic and elective courses from which to choose. As a relatively small school secondary school in a beautiful rural setting, we ensure our students are gaining the skills they need to take their place in the global community.
NSS focuses on the needs of individual students and personalizes their learning. As the school motto states, the school, staff and students: “Prove it Possible”!
