Welcome to the South Island Distance Education School (SIDES).
SIDES is a public, full-service, Kindergarten to Grade 12 (K-12) school, offering online courses to all students in British Columbia.
SIDES students include both school-age and adults who want to graduate or to upgrade courses. SIDES also welcomes students in Grades 9-12 who attend a neighbourhood school but want to supplement with online courses.
Registration for full-time K-9 (for September 2021) is now open. We continue to accept applications for Grade 9 - 12 individual courses for school year and summer study.
