Introduction

Queen Margaret's School in Duncan, Canada. A girls boarding school for 8-12 grades. One of best boarding schools in America! At Queen Margaret's School we believe each student has a unique set of talents that must be encouraged and nurtured. Our All-Girls High School (both day and boarding) allows young women to achieve in a structured and safe learning environment without the social pressures of a co-ed classroom.

Our Grade 8 to 12 classes balance an academic emphasis with vibrant athletic disciplines, including a unique Equestrian program, and enriched visual and performing arts programs. Our teaching approach provides a solid academic foundation, which encourages critical thinking and problem solving, fostering a joy in learning. Our residence is a multi-cultural community where students can cultivate self-reliance with responsibility.

Co-educational Junior School to 7 grade
A demanding curriculum and the expectation of self-reliance and initiative in the classroom prepare students for the world of post secondary education.

At QMS we not only deliver the provincial curriculum, but also provide many learning opportunities that are not offered in most public schools. We provide French instruction from Kindergarten to Grade 7/8, Japanese from K - Grade 4, and have music specialists who provide an extensive and enriched music program for all of our Junior School students. We provide instruction in Information Technology where students learn about computers, how to use a wide variety of software programs, and about the proper, safe and ethical use of the Internet. We offer art instruction, Global Studies classes and have a dedicated Junior Atheltic Director who provides our young students with a cross sampling of sports. We also provide an extensive Outdoor Education program that extends from the Kindergarten year on to Grade 12.

The provincial curriculum is organized into two categories at the elementary level: The Primary Program (Kindergarten to Grade 3) and the Intermediate Program (Grades Four to Seven). We do the same at Queen Margaret's School, but further distinguish the Grade 7 program as an important transitional year between the Junior and Senior School years.
