About us

Seabird Island Community School’s traditional name is Lalme’ Iwesawtexw. Our school was named in memory of Mary Charles who was an Elder from Seabird Island and mother to Grand Chief Archie Charles.

We invite you to learn more about us as a school, how you can get involved, and what our expectations of you are, as well as plans for our future and how to communicate best with us.

Seabird Island Community School is a Group One K-12 Independent school located 1 km from Agassiz on the beautiful Fraser River 120 km east of Vancouver. We have an expected student enrollment of 185 students housed in the main school (K-8) and in an adjacent high school. 

Lalme’ Iwesawtexw is a place to learn many skills. We are many nations, but we proclaim one goal to strengthen our pride, our language, our culture and our freedom.
