Mrs. Wilma Jamieson, Head of School
B. Sc., M. Ed.
By building on the vision and ideals of our founders, Miss Denny and Miss Geoghegan, for the past ninety years, our tradition of girls’ education has led to student accomplishments which are recognized both nationally and internationally. We have a commitment to a culturally diverse environment that has contributed to our graduates being accepted at leading universities in Canada, the United States and abroad.
Our teachers at QMS are passionate about their work. As a university-preparatory school, our expectations for students are high and our curriculum challenging. Through such challenges, along with the expectation for full and active participation in the life of this school community – in the classroom where it all begins, through co-curricular and outdoor education experiences, and beyond – in athletics, the arts, and service to our community, students grow in confidence and develop an awareness and curiosity in a wide array of venues.
We are held together by our core values. These are the values that define us and provide the framework for the engaging experience that is Queen Margaret’s School. QMS is a school where relationships matter. Positive, supportive relationships between students, teachers and students, and between the family and school are important to us. We invite our parents to be active members of our school community. We host many events throughout the school year to showcase our students’ work, enjoy seasonal events and create a positive social environment. Please join us for these events, come visit our school often, and see for yourself what distinguishes QMS and our extraordinary community. I feel confident that together with the participation of outstanding faculty, staff, students and parents, we will continue to grow the strong foundation and legacy with which we have been entrusted.
On behalf of the faculty, staff and the Board of Governors of Queen Margaret’s School, we extend a collective welcome to you and offer our best wishes for a successful and rewarding year.
