Find a list of schools  

Parents looking for schools in Vancouver need to carefully consider all their options. This page offers an overview of schools in Vancouver, with an obvious focus on private schools. To investigate some of the best private schools in Vancouver, look at Our Kids' list of Vancouver schools, click on links and get a full picture of what each of the schools is like (that might include stories from students, videos and more). Our Kids has hosted private school fairs in Vancouver a number of times in recent years, one of many ways we try to help parents learn all they can about choices they have concerning schools in Vancouver.

Learn much more about your education options at the annual Vancouver Private School Expo where you can meet with many leading day schools and boarding schools from across BC.

Finding the best Vancouver school for your child(ren)

As you decide whether to send your child to a public school, independent school or private school in Vancouver, consider these questions:

  • How does the school inform parents of student progress, both formally and informally?
  • What is the school's reputation within the community of BC and within the education community (including universities, colleges, other schools in Vancouver and elsewhere)?
  • How do you feel about the leadership of the school, as well as its teachers and other staff?
  • How convenient is the school for you in terms of location, after-school care and other issues?
  • What makes the school unique, and how well do its unique factors truly appeal to you, your family and your child(ren)?
  • Consider how up-to-date the technology, sports and education facilities are.
