About Pear Tree

Established in 2011, Pear Tree’s innovative learning is leading the way for Metro Vancouver schools with a technology-enriched, innovative, and research-backed approach to education.

Pear Tree School was created in response to the problem that public and private / independent school education models are outdated, and that children are not learning relevant life skills nor developing the confidence that will enable them to excel in and out of the classroom.

Our Facilities

Located on West Broadway in the heart of Kitsilano, the school is close to the beach, forests, parks, and local transportation.

Our custom-built facility provides a learning environment that is bright, modern, and welcoming. Classrooms are equipped with the latest in interactive SMARTboard technology, with Cisco Meraki wifi connectivity throughout. Our open concept encourages the collaboration and hands-on learning that we believe in so strongly.

In 2021, Pear Tree School completed an $800,000 facility expansion and upgrade to accommodate up to 80 students plus staff. It now offers five spacious classrooms, a commercial-grade kitchen, a reception area, a directors’ office, a teacher’s office, non-gendered washrooms, and a separate suite for teacher meetings and storage.

For the 2024/25 school year, we launch a second Middle School campus bringing our total student numbers up to 144 students.

(Pear Tree School is certified by the BC Ministry of Education as a Group 3 Independent School: Certificate No. 3996918)
