Cultus Lake Community School was constructed in the late 1920's and was located at the end of Columbia Valley. It was built for the families of local loggers and farmers. In the early 1930's it was moved to the Columbia Valley Community Centre. The current site was built in 1947. It was a small four room building but quickly grew to eight classrooms. In 1959 it burnt to the ground. Reconstruction started immediately and additions continued to be added to the building. The last addition was a full sized gym built in the 1980's. The latest addition was the state of the art playground that was put in last year.
School Mission statement
Cultus Lake Community school is committed to place based learning. Place-based education promotes learning that is local and considers the unique history, environment and culture of Cultus Lake. It recognizes and uses students’ own “place” or immediate schoolyard, neighbourhood, town or community for learning.
