NSD is situated in some of the most stunning areas in northern Alberta. Covering 288,347 square kilometres, our schools are located near mountains, lakes, rivers, forests, and wetlands on Treaty 6 and 8 territories. We hold high respect for these traditional territories, their history, language, and culture. At NSD, 95% of the student population is of First Nations, Métis and Inuit descent. We have approximately 2000 students in 20 schools. Our schools are located in municipalities, First Nation reserves, and Métis Settlements.
