Vancouver Island Schools plans to add to our existing partnerships with high schools throughout the Asia Pacific, offering partner schools our expertise in education management program delivery and teacher training.
We plan to continue our program of sending qualified Canadian teachers to our partner schools in Asia to teach ESL and the grade 10 curricula, and preparing those students for travelling to Canada to complete grades 11 and 12.
Similarly, in the future we anticipate organizing college and university partnerships in Asia to offer Canadian advanced level courses. This is exciting news for Asian students, as Canada consistently places first for reading, science and mathematics among all English speaking countries in the OCED rankings. The excellent schools and universities on Vancouver Island are part of that profile.
