Established in 1921, Queen Margaret's School is located on 27 country-like acres on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Queen Margaret’s School’s university-preparatory program inspires students to achieve in a structured and safe learning environment. Our teaching approach focuses on the pillars of academic rigor and personal excellence, gender equality and fairness, and building character and service.

Students in Grades 6 through 12 may board in our multicultural residence community, where we celebrate diversity through global understanding. Boarding students develop life-long friendships and skills, such as independence and accountability.

At QMS, learning goes beyond the classroom. Our unique programming includes a variety of Advanced Placement courses and Equine Facilitated Leadership Development, as well as innovative, learning strategies such as entrepreneurial thinking, global sustainability, experiential and inquiry-based learning. Through these unique approaches, students gain opportunities to test knowledge through hands-on exercises and to apply what they’ve learned to real world settings.
