Primary & Secondary Education
On Nisga'a Lands, K-12 education is provided by British Columbia through School District 92 (Nisga'a). The school board consists of four Nisga'a members and one non-Nisga'a member. Nisga'a Lisims Government works in partnership with the district to foster and protect Nisga'a language and culture while seeking to raise the standard of education for all Nass Valley youth.
