Many families, currently living or recently established in Canada, have specifically chosen to live in West Vancouver to ensure the quality of education for their children. Parents select Chartwell Elementary, as we are renowned for our high academic standards, for providing a warm, caring, safe, and inclusive environment. Chartwell School serves approximately 240 children. Our international profile and proactive diversity programs benefiting both local and international students alike add to Chartwell’s uniqueness. With at least half of our students being born outside of Canada from 21 different countries from around the world and with at least 14 different languages spoken, it is indeed a diverse and multicultural population. Consequently, our students are offered the unique opportunity to enhance their learning within a true global community. Despite the challenges that come with such diversity, we strive to build a common language of trust, caring and kindness. We take pride in, and celebrate our multicultural make up and view it as a wonderful opportunity for our students to learn about culture, community and citizenship in a global atmosphere.


The Properties Family Hub Society (PFHS) contributes to positive human and economic development by offering multi-generational, flexible community health and education programs for families, seniors, singles and children residing in and near the British Properties. The hub creates meaningful connections among local residents to foster a culture of active, engaged citizens through partnerships with local community groups.

PFHS is located at Chartwell Elementary school and offers a range of recreational, language and community programming for all age groups, along with an onsite pre-school. Independent non-profit service providers operate through the centre from across the North Shore in cooperation with the West Vancouver School District.
