West Bay Elementary

Our School

West Bay Elementary offers the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) to all students from Kindergarten to Grade 7. Authorized as an IB World School since August 2007, the PYP integrates the British Columbia Ministry of Education curriculum into a framework of inquiry with a global perspective. This approach expands the BC curriculum in breadth and depth. Rigorous learning activities are directly linked to progressively challenging stages of questioning that drive the inquiry.

Our Location

West Bay is located at the end of a cul-de-sac in a neighbourhood tucked away in the heart of West Vancouver. Surrounded by expansive forested areas, students have a wonderful environment at their doorstep for exploration, discovery, and play.
