King George Mini School is a District Enriched Program offered by the Vancouver School Board. In collaboration with KG staff, students and our parent community, the program has been revised for the 2017-18 school year.

New Name: King George Mini School

This name change reflects a shift towards a more generalized enriched program that includes the following highlights:

  2-Year Cohort (Gr. 8 and 9) within a minimum of 4 academic subjects, and automatic enrollment in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program

  Focused on developing collaborative, creative, critically thinking communicators with a global perspective

 

  Opportunities for Leadership

  Opportunities for Community Involvement

  Purposeful use of Educational Technology

  28 students

 

Application Process:

The Vancouver School Board requires all applicants for Mini schools to write a District Alternative Programs Test.  This test is being offered November 14th at King George Library from 1pm to 4pm. On-line Registration is required for this test which consists of Math, English and Cognitive Skills components.
