Many Lynn Valley families were originally attracted to this community by the quality of both our public and private schools.
North Vancouver School District 44
Lynn Valley’s District boasts unique offerings such as an unparalleled band and strings program, early and late French Immersion streams, Artists for Kids camps and workshops, accredited apprenticeships opportunities, and an Outdoor School near Squamish, which allows students the chance to camp in cabins for a week while learning about the coastal rainforest environment.
Two elementary schools in the community (Eastview and Boundary) offer StrongStart BC, a free, daily drop-in program for preschoolers and their parents or caregivers.

Our Private Schools
Lynn Valley is also home to a number of innovative private schools, such as Brockton Preparatory School located near Lynn Canyon Park. It runs from Kindergarten to Grade 12. Brockton School is a co-ed, International Baccalaureate World School (PYP & MYP); Grade 11 and grade 12 follow the BC graduation program.
Near the foot of the Second Narrows Bridge, Kenneth Gordon Maplewood School offers a Grade One to 8 program tailored to students with dyslexia and other specific learning disabilities, and the Vancouver Waldorf School (preschool to Grade 9) operates just off Lynn Valley Road. Another unique school in Lynn Valley is Cousteau Ecole Francaise Internationale De Vancouver; from the age of three, children learn French by following the requirements of both the French Ministry of National Education and the British Columbia Ministry of Education.
