New middle school for Upper Mission

The Central Okanagan School District and The Ponds have established an agreement in principle for a future school site in The Ponds neighbourhood.

The 7 acre site is located between the existing neighbourhood park and the future Village Centre and, when built, is expected to become the hub of the community.

The site is of sufficient size for a future middle school in the Upper Mission which is consistent with the identified school needs for the area.

The Ponds neighbourhood will be proceeding with the rezoning process for the site in order to facilitate the transfer of ownership.

The continued growth in the Upper Mission, especially in The Ponds, has resulted in a need for additional educational facilities in the area.

A new 600 student middle school in the Upper Mission area of Kelowna is in the top three immediate capital needs identified by the School District, along with the rebuilds of Rutland Middle and Glenmore Elementary schools.
