What type of student Pear Tree School is looking for:

Admissions are based on the number of spaces available, the child’s academic potential, as well as the synergy and compatibility between the school, family, and child. Our decision to (not) accept a student has as much to do with the child's family as the child her/himself. Pear Tree School is looking for Vancouver families that share and support our educational philosophy. This is essential to ensure that the approach we foster in our school is continued at home. Such things include healthy eating, an active lifestyle, etc. At the same time, we are looking for students that are well-behaved, kind, and receptive to our learning method.
