West Vancouver Schools Pursuit Program

Background Image

A priority for West Vancouver Schools is to ensure all students receive the required courses for graduation purposes. Pursuit is a program that is designed for students, Grades 10-12, who are provincially and/or nationally ranked athletes or performing artists competing at the highest level or category for their specific age group. All applications are reviewed, and final decisions made by a WVS District Committee.

For Grades 8 & 9 students competing or performing at a very high level (e.g., top levels for their age group), applications will be reviewed by the WVS District Committee

WVS 2023-2024 Secondary Timetable

The current “Transitional Secondary Timetable” was designed to provide flexibility and support for students, schools, and programs as we navigated COVID 19 restrictions, guidelines and uncertainty. As part of the 2023-24 timetable planning process, the school district used feedback from the Spring 2022 Student, Parent and Staff timetable surveys, and conducted a series of timetable focus group conversations. After careful consideration, to best meet the needs of our students, schools, and diverse programs, West Vancouver Schools will be transitioning to a Linear Secondary Schedule for the 2023-2024 school year.  In a linear timetable students will take eight courses for the entire school year where students take four courses at a time for half the year.  Final timetable details will be communicated before Spring Break.
