What is an Independent School?

Independent schools in BC provide families the option to choose a different educational approach.  This might include pedagogical, cultural, language oriented, athletic, worldview, learning style, or faith-based options. 


BC Independent schools teach the BC curriculum as set by the Mnistry of Education.  They are regulated by the Independent Schools Act and comply with the Ministry of Education regulatory requirements. Teachers are certified through the BC Teacher Regulation Branch.


Independent schools  undergo external evaluations with the Ministry every 6 years and monitoring inspections every 2 years.


Discover Montessori School is also a member of the Federation of Independent School Associations (FISA), AMI Canada, and Vancouver Island Montessori Association (VIMA).
