By 2028, Pear Tree School will be a full K-12 school offering a BC Certificate of Graduation (Dogwood Diploma).
At Pear Tree School, we’re not just reimagining the high school experience; we’re setting a new standard for it.
Our Grade 10-12 program is designed to be the pinnacle of our progressive educational journey, seamlessly continuing the innovative practices established from K-9 into the grade 10-12 high school years.
At Pear Tree School, we believe the high school years are not just a pathway to higher education but a pivotal journey that shapes the future. Our high school program is crafted to be the zenith of the educational experience we offer, seamlessly integrating the approaches, standards, and values that define our K-9 program into a comprehensive Grade 10-12 curriculum.
Imagine a high school where every student is known, valued, and understood, not just by their peers but by their teachers.
With highly qualified M.Ed. educators who are attuned to the academic and socio-emotional landscapes of each student, we foster a close-knit cohort that thrives on mutual respect and understanding. Our educators are more than teachers; they are mentors, guides, and the catalysts for transformation.
High school classes at Pear Tree School will break the traditional mold, being co-taught by a trio of specialized teachers in science/math, humanities, and business/entrepreneurship.
This collaborative teaching approach ensures a rich, interdisciplinary learning experience that mirrors the complexity and interconnectedness of the real world, preparing our students not just for exams, but for life.
Our curriculum, grounded in theme and project-based learning, is meticulously designed to engage students with real-life applications of their studies.
Not only will our students be thoroughly prepared for the B.C. Provincial Exams in numeracy and literacy, but they will also gain invaluable skills in addressing complex, real-world problems through an entrepreneurial lens.
From environmental sustainability to technological innovation, our themes are chosen for their immediacy and impact, reflecting a world that awaits the bold and the visionary.
A hallmark of a Pear Tree School education is its entrepreneurial spirit and problem-solving ethos. Our students engage in projects that demand not just academic excellence but real-world application, leadership, and innovation.
This entrepreneurial angle is not a subject or a course—it’s a mindset that permeates our curriculum, preparing students to be the change-makers of tomorrow.
The 120 graduation credits obtained through our program will showcase the distinct Pear Tree School education—interdisciplinary, problem-solving, and forward-thinking. Our curriculum is crafted to fulfill and exceed provincial standards while maintaining our commitment to innovative education.
Beyond the classroom, Pear Tree School students will embark on extended overnight educational trips that promise not just learning, but adventure. These trips are carefully integrated with our curriculum, enhancing our students’ education with unforgettable experiences that bring their studies to life.
Understanding the importance of post-secondary preparation, Pear Tree School is actively engaging with both local and international universities that share our values.
This collaboration ensures our high school graduates are not just prepared for university but are sought after, their education aligned with the needs and expectations of higher learning institutions globally.
Pear Tree School is on the brink of launching this transformative high school program, and we invite you to be part of this exciting journey by joining our Grade 8 middle school program.
