At the VSB, we are proud to provide exceptional learning experiences for students. As a large, urban school district, the VSB is one of Canada’s most diverse school systems.

With deep gratitude and respect, we are honoured to be learning and unlearning on the ancestral and unceded lands of the x?m?θk??y? ?m (Musqueam), S?wxwú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) & s?lilw?ta? (Tsleil-Waututh Nation).?We embrace Indigenous ways of knowing and learning and work to expand Indigenous perspectives across the curriculum and within our 107 schools and programs, where more than 50,000 students learn and grow.

Equity and inclusivity are at the forefront of our approach to education. More than 7,700 staff work to create learning environments where every student thrives by prioritizing students’ needs, applying evidence-informed practices and building relationships. The VSB’s culture reflects the diversity of our city. Students enrolled in the VSB come from varied backgrounds and lived experiences and are encouraged to explore and share their unique selves and gifts. Our commitment to students goes beyond academics. Students’ overall well-being and sense of belonging are equally important. We strive to build a school system where every student can be their authentic self and succeed throughout their learning journey. In doing this work, we champion equity and accountability by making evidence-based decisions. As a learning organization, humility is our guidepost as we seek to continually improve student outcomes in service to them, their families, and the broader community. Our work is guided by the?VSB Education Plan?and grounded in the embedded equity statement.? For more information about our school district, visit?
