City School, Vancouver, B.C.
Our school is in the West End, on the garden level of King George Secondary School. On any given day there's a good chance we'll be somewhere else, though.
1755 Barclay Street,
Vancouver, B.C., V6G 1K6
City School is a district mini-school program, so our students commute from all over Vancouver.
Prospective students are encouraged to visit, and we welcome enquiries from students, parents and school counsellors. Phone or e-mail us to arrange a visit. (If you are applying in July or August, the visit will have to wait until September, but please do follow through with the application. We still deal with phone messages and e-mails in the summer, just not instantly.)
The application process isn't too onerous... Along with the application form, we need a transcript, and a handwritten essay describing your talents, interests, strengths, and weaknesses. We interview all qualified applicants. If you are, or are about to be, a Grade 10, 11 or 12 student, you can download an application form here.
City School is for people who love branching from the norm. City School is for people who are motivated in special areas of study, with a passion to pursue them. City School is for open-minded people doing open-ended things! ~ Mary M.
