Plan your visit

Interested in learning more about Island Pacific School? Come and visit us on Bowen Island and we’ll show you what makes us distinctly different. School tours and student visits are typically available between early October through to the end of May. Contact us directly if you’d like to visit outside of this schedule.

Book a Parent Tour
You’ll attend our morning stretch and then meet with our Head or Assistant Head  and get an insider’s perspective. Tours last approximately an hour and a half and provide you with a sneak-peak of how things work at Island Pacific School.  Parent tours are designed for adults, but kids are welcome.

Book a Student Visit
For students grade 5 or older, we recommend booking a day long Student Visit, which can occur the same day as the parent visit to Bowen Island, or another as scheduled. Your student will be assigned a buddy from grade 6 before spending a full school day attending classes with the grade 6 cohort.

To book, call us at 604.947.9311 or follow the links below. Our school is closed from mid July to mid August each year and tours and visits are typically available from early October to the end of May each year.

Did you know?


About 50% of our students commute to Bowen Island on the 8:00 ferry from Horseshoe Bay, West Vancouver. They carpool from North and West Vancouver, walk on the ferry, and then walk or ride their bike to school. They can also choose to hop the local bus from Snug Cove ferry terminal (Bowen) to the school.
