Our two campuses are situated on the unceded ancestral territory of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations located in the north shore mountains of North Vancouver. We have programs for families with infants up through students in twelfth grade. Our Lynn Valley campus is home to our Early Childhood programs (Parent & Tot, Preschool, and Kindergarten) and our Grade School which serves students from grade one through eight. Our Edgemont campus is home to our High School programs – grades nine through twelve. Just minutes from downtown Vancouver and surrounded by green spaces, our locations offer a unique and beautiful balance of natural and urban landscapes.
Students learn from an early age to engage in their own learning process. The imaginative play and grace of the Kindergarten years evolve into an experience of meeting the beauty and complexity of the world with sensitivity and hope. This foundation leads to a rich academic high school experience that supports youth in realizing their full potential as students, as people, as members of the human community.
In addition to imparting knowledge, we foster in children a sense of reverence and respect for life. The close relationships between students and teachers enhance learning and the ability to explore new interests and take on new challenges. Students are engaged in a learning experience both artistic and academically challenging.
We admit and welcome students of any race, colour, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at VWS. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, colour, national and ethnic origin in the administration of our educational policies, admissions policies, tuition assistance program, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
We are a registered charitable society (Registration no.: 108167917RR0001) and a full member of the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America.
