Oak and Orca School Location

The School is accessible by bike, bus, foot, and car.

The school buildings are located in Victoria on land that was likely traditionally managed by lək̓ʷəŋən women who maintained the grasslands ecosystem, harvesting and trading the sought after Camas as a staple food crop as well as other plants such as the Chocolate Lily. The land remains sacred to the lək̓ʷəŋən people, fourteen family groups who call this place home and speak the language of the land. We are also within the territory of the W̱SÁNEĆ peoples who have a sacred connection to the land and to their spiritual places throughout the area that includes Victoria.

Located at 2738 Higgins St., the school is near the corner of Cook and Hillside. Higgins is a one-block street with a baseball field on the west side of the road. The school house is located north of this field, at the top of the hill. The main building is green with reddish brown trim. Through the main yard of the green building there is a path to our second building which is white.

The School is accessible by a number of means. For cyclists, we have bike parking directly in front of the school building. We are also easily accessible by bus. Bus routes #24 and #25 have a stop at the corner of Cook and Higgins, right next to the school, and bus route #4 has a stop on Hillside between Higgins and Cook. There is also motor vehicle parking available on Higgins street. We ask drivers to refrain from idling in the parking area.
