Island Pacific School (IPS) focuses exclusively on meeting the educational needs of adolescents in Grades 6-9. Our IB Middle Years Programme, outdoor challenges and community service experiences set students up for the rest of their lives. Housed in a purpose-built, student-friendly facility, IPS is located in the safe community of Bowen Island and offers an enriched curriculum that includes philosophy, reasoning and ethics classes, monthly community service activities and multi-day outdoor expeditions.

If you are looking for a career in middle school education, have a valid BC teaching certificate and are prepared to contribute to the total culture of the school by participating in outdoor expeditions, serving as a homeroom teacher, coaching Ultimate, and becoming a Masterworks advisor, we’d love to hear from you!

Teaching Qualifications

Our middle school superheroes at IPS are passionated, kind, confident and cool! All IPS teachers need a valid BC teaching certificate. We are an IB MYP Global School, so an understanding of the IB programme is helpful.

Working at IPS

With small classes of 12-18 and a total school population of 66-72, our teachers enjoy getting to know our students and discovering how best to motivate and inspire them. We work with a close-knit team of IB teachers in a highly collaborative environment and many of our teachers expand their practice beyond the school’s walls by taking advantage of nearby forest trails, professional community members and local organizations.
