Education, Library & Archives
The Battlefords Region offers access to primary and secondary education, both in English and French. One of the High Schools in North Battleford, Sakewew High School, also includes alternate programs, such as Cree language and Native studies, along with enriched activities in dance and art.
Post-secondary education is available through the North West Regional College and the Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies (S.I.I.T.). The College also provides some University of Saskatchewan and University of Regina courses.
The North Battleford Library was founded in 1916. It is their mission to serve individuals of all ages, providing relevant, current and high demand materials and services in as many formats as can be cost-effective. This enables the library to respond to the changing informational, recreational and cultural needs of our community.
The City of North Battleford Historic Archives has a collection of over 7000 photographs, 5000 negatives and over 200 metres of textual records. It is a donation based repository and is made possible due to the generosity of the citizens of North Battleford, who wish to see the history of our great City preserved.
