About Island Pacific School
During the middle years, schools can either lose students or set them up for the rest of their lives. Put students in an environment of mediocrity and they will wither on the vine. Create a climate of challenge and expectation, and they will surprise us all. Located on Bowen Island, British Columbia, Island Pacific School (IPS) is a non-profit independent middle school uniquely designed to give grade 6-9 middle school students the education they need: an education that challenges and surprises them to become the very best of who they are. Small by design, IPS is an International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Program school with a total of 65 students. We are accredited by both ISABC and CAIS.
Island Pacific School Society continually attracts a diverse range of board members who bring strong qualifications, a wide range of skills and experience, and most importantly, a deep interest in education and student development.
Bowen Island is a municipality of 3,500 permanent residents. It is situated within beautiful Howe Sound and in close proximity to Metro Vancouver, British Columbia. Only a 20-minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay, Bowen Island is known for being a supportive and safe community.
