Island Pacific School –

A Community Independent School on Bowen Island, BC

As a community independent school on Bowen Island, in beautiful Howe Sound, British Columbia, Island Pacific School strives to engage with our students, parents, faculty and staff, and neighbours – and we like to have fun! Throughout the year we host several informal Open Houses, Community Faculty speaking events, and casual get-togethers. These are all great opportunities to visit the school and get to know each other better.

If you would like to tour the school during class hours, or chat with our Head of School or a member of our staff, please call 604.947.9311 between 9 am and 4 pm to arrange a time when we can focus on you. When you call please be sure to let us know what you’d like to see or talk about so that we can be well prepared (for example, admission applications process, financial aid, meet the staff, learn more about our middle school curriculum and/or accreditation, and more).

Every year we host the fall party on Bowen: The IPS Gala. This annual fundraiser is for Financial Aid and is well attended by our community, school, and alumni. The theme is always fantastic with décor and costumes to match. Watch for the Gala in November.
