Victoria Public School with an Alternative Education Philiso

Postby NikkiLane on Tue Aug 22, 2017 1:27 pm

Hi. We are returning to Canada next year. We would like to settle in Victoria. Our kids have attended alternative schools in Central America for their entire education (Waldorf and Montessori inspired). Kids are 10 and 7. We don't think we can afford private schools but are looking for schools with a more child centered/hands on learning approach. Ideally there would be a focus on nature and the environment. We don't think our son particularly would do well with a traditional school where he is sitting at a desk copying notes from a board. He'll be going into 5th Grade next year. The only public school we found online that seems to fit is South Park. Appreciate any ideas or advice. Thank you. Nikki

Our kids went to South Park and both had great experiences. Can recommend the school and community of families there.
