Mapping the Diversity of Our Schools

The map below was constructed using the most recent information from BC Government’s K-12 Data Collections. It provides an at-a-glance view of the percentage (%) of English Language Learner (ELL) students by corresponding the figures to the relative size of geolocation points of each school.

Hover over the districts to see:

  • Total enrollment (including permanent residents, Canadian citizens, international students, and other temporary residents)
  • Number of English Language Learner (ELL) students
  • Percentage (%) of ELL students in relation to the student population
  • Top 10 non-English languages spoken at home for both ELL and non-ELL students

Hover over the schools to see:

  • Number of English Language Learner (ELL) students
  • Percentage (%) of ELL students in relation to the student population
  • Non-English languages spoken at home for both ELL and non-ELL students, where the student headcount for the category is greater than 5

Tip: For better navigation, drag the map or use the zoom (+/-) controls or the mouse scroll. You can also collapse the legend box located on the top left.

Note: We are currently seeking clarifications from BC Government’s K-12 Reporting Group on whether ‘Persian’ is synonymous with ‘Farsi’, or whether it includes additional languages and dialects such as Dari (Afghan Persian) and Tajiki (Tajikistan Persian). Similarly, please note that ‘Chinese’, ‘Mandarin’, and ‘Cantonese’ categories were selected by individual schools and there may be overlaps in the resulting student headcounts.
