​Serving the town of Clinton and the surrounding rural areas, David Stoddart School is located at the south end of the town. All classes are multi-grade, with a wide range of learners being accommodated within. Students have a number of learning opportunities through direct classroom instruction, shared learning and distributed learning. The staff have been working to support the social and emotional learning and development of students. The school is supported by a generous Parent Advisory Council that supports curricular and extracurricular learning opportunities and experiences. Early Learning opportunities within the school are found in the Strong Start Centre. Our school population consists of approximately 110 students, with approximately 52% of students having Indigenous ancestry. The four local bands are High Bar, Whispering Pines, Bonaparte and Canoe Creek of the Secwepemc nation. An Aboriginal Student Support Worker supports staff with the integration of the local Indigenous culture and for students to be successful at school. 

The school plays a vital role in the community and is a hub for school sports teams, community clubs and organizations. Community groups use the facilities regularly, such as Clinton Minor Sports. In addition, local organizations rent the school for various functions. Our secondary students frequently earn volunteer hours by working with local service clubs. Events held at our facility include the Annual Seniors Christmas Dinner, Elders Teas and various cultural events creating ties with the community. Visitors feel welcome and frequently comment on our friendly atmosphere. â€‹
