The school campus is one of the best features of the school. It is large, lush and full of opportunities to grow and explore. The wider community, both around the school and further afield, offers many chances and opportunities to explore. The school organizes many trips and events off campus, so that the students can feel a direct connection to their community.

The school is located in beautiful Victoria, BC, Canada. It is situated on 22 acres of green space amongst tall trees and looking out towards Mt. Doug. There is lots of space for the girls to play, run around and explore their envioronment. It is truely a breathtaking place for them to learn. They also get many opportunities to go off campus on hikes up Mt. Doug and walks to local duck ponds, as well as to venture to the city centre to take part in educational programs related to the Royal BC Museum including the many First Nations artifacts (Long Houses, totem poles etc.), local municipal offices, fire departments, the Art Gallery, and of course the beaches!

At St. Margaret’s School, younger girls tend to go off campus more frequently when compared to the senior students. In the Foundation Years (Kindergarten to Grade 4), places like the Swan Lake Nature House, pumpkin patch, and Beckwith Park are visited. The Middle Years (Grade 5 to Grade 8) typically go to the Royal BC Museum and IMAX and will watch a documentary or movie related to a unit studied. In the Senior Years (Grade 9 to Grade 12) more trips off campus are done through clubs. For example, Outreach Committee gives members the opportunity to go to WE Day in Vancouver, and Green Club may visit the landfill to learn about managing recycling stations and understanding the toll garbage has on the world. In a typical school day, students do normally stay on campus.

The grounds at the school are amazing. Surrounded by nature while also allowing for field trips on occasion.

Quiet neighbourhood. My daughter often walked to the bus stop and took public transit home. There are convenience stores close by for the students to visit.
