Welcome to West Vancouver

West Vancouver Schools (WVS) is a community of learners that draws students from West Vancouver, Bowen Island, Lions Bay and beyond. As the top performing public school board in British Columbia, WVS is built on a tradition of academic excellence.

WVS is comprised of 14 elementary and 3 secondary institutions. In each school, we celebrate the potential of every student, and work to equip them with the conscience and character to persevere in our complex and fast-changing world.
