About Queen Margaret's School 


Established in 1921, Queen Margaret's School is located on 27 country-like acres on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. We offer a secure and safe learning environment close to our provincial capital, Victoria.  

The temperate climate of Vancouver Island’s beautiful west coast and our proximity to Victoria International Airport (YYJ) make QMS the perfect learning destination for your child.

Queen Margaret’s School’s all girls university-preparatory high school program inspires young women to achieve in a structured and safe learning environment without the social pressures of a co-ed classroom. Our teaching approach encourages critical thinking and problem solving by fostering a joy in learning. 

Our co-ed Junior School (Kindergarten to Grade 7) and Early Childhood Education (ECE) Program begin the adventure of learning in small, enriched classes. QMS faculty and staff are committed to providing an educational environment where the love for learning flourishes.

Girls in Grade 6 through 12 may attend as day students or board in our multicultural residence community, where we celebrate diversity through global understanding. Boarding students quickly develop life-long skills such as independence and accountability. 

Through QMS' unique fully integrated Equestrian program, English riding lessons are blended into the weekly timetable. This program is an exciting option available to our students.
