General Information

Description: York House School is an all-girls private school for Junior Kindergarten (4-year-olds) through Grade 12 located in Vancouver.

York House is located in the prestigious Shaughnessy neighbourhood in the heart of Vancouver. Founded in 1932 as a Canadian school for girls, it adopted an English motto as opposed to a Latin one: "Not For Ourselves Alone". The motto is the focus of the school's community service program.

York House is first and foremost an academic school, but is also able to offer a wide range of courses from Drama, Textiles (Sewing) to Computer Programming. It offers Advanced Placement courses to Grades 11-12, and Honours courses in math and French for Grades 8-10.

York House has maintained a number one ranking from the Fraser Institute Report Card on Secondary Schools in BC over the past five years and had both top and high rankings prior to that.

York House encourages activicties outside the classroom as well. With a wide range of clubs, sport teams, and arts program, York House students are well-rounded. Year after year, York House produces provincially ranked sports teams, and an award winning arts department.

York House is truly an one-of-a-kind, exceptional all-girls day school.
