Quilchena Elementary School
Quilchena Elementary School (1974- ) was built to take the load off of Gilmore Elementary.
The name Quilchena comes from the Salish word meaning "flat place near water." The intent of the School Board was to recognize the fact that a First Nation’s settlement had been located near this site. However, the Quilchena Golf Course existed prior to the school, and the school adopted the same name.
