This link below provides some additional information about the Bowen Island Community School.
When the kids hit High School, they go off island to the West Vancouver high schools. The commute, while challenging, really seems to help older kids mature.
The community recreation office offers a lot of programs: sports and
art offerings for kids, gymnastics, and a great soccer club. There is
also a great dance academy.
Bowen is also close enough to the city so your child doesn’t grow up
without the cultural benefits of city life. It’s really the best of both
I can’t tell you how many times I have turned to my kid and said,
“Do you have any idea how lucky you are to grow up here?” His
response is always, “No. Because I don’t know anything different.”
