Also known as just “NPSS”, North Peace Secondary School (with grades 10-12) in the historic city of Fort St. John is operated by the North Peace School District and recently (2002) went through a significant renovation and expansion. North Peace Secondary currently has over 1,100 students enrolled, with approximately 16% of enrolled students being of Aboriginal descent. NPSS is the city’s only senior high school, therefore is home to all special programs, including Pre-Employment, Senior Alternate, Modified Essential Learning, and Life Skills programs.

North Peace Secondary offers several academic programs, along with the normal core curriculum, including: ACE IT (residential carpentry, hairdressing, cook training), automotive and construction, dual credit/Northern Opportunities, music and performing arts, Project Natural Resource Management, Green Certificate Program (in partnership with the Grande Prairie Regional College), Secondary School Apprenticeship, Woodlands Operations Learning Foundation, welding and metal fabrication, and Dual Trade Programs (in partnership with Northern Lights College).

Located within the Pomeroy Sport Centre is North Peace Secondary’s Energetic Learning Campus, a 200-student branch of NPSS that was evolved after a demand for more space at North Peace Secondary and was opened in 2011. The Energetic Learning Campus is not like a traditional school, and does not have classrooms, a bell system, or scheduled blocks of time; ECL allows students to have flexible classroom time and study periods.

North Peace Secondary has several sports programs and extracurricular activities available for students, including special programs like their annual musical performance, talent shows, athletics fundraisers, dances, and sports like basketball, volleyball, and soccer.

The school employs a method of learning called AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination), which is a curriculum driven by the WICOR method (writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading). The goal of AVID is to ensure students continue their education into post-secondary schools like colleges and universities after graduation. Those students who utilize the AVID curriculum receive training on how to ask the right questions, how to assist their peers as tutors by using AVID questioning techniques, and AVID students also serve as role models for younger students.

North Peace Secondary School is part of School District #60 Peace River North with its primary location in Fort St. John; however, SD60 also serves surrounding areas like Charlie Lake, Buick, Taylor, Prespatou, Hudson’s Hope, Wonowon, and Baldonnel. This school district has the distinction of being British Columbia’s first district to initiate a district-wide laptop computer program. Through this program, all students in grades 6-7 receive a laptop computer for use either at school or at home. All participating schools in the School District #60 service area qualify for laptop computers for their grades 6-7 students.
