At KGMS, we believe that a safe, nurturing environment is key to academic success. We believe that every child is unique and that their differences should be celebrated. We believe in an innovative approach to education that’s forward-thinking yet rooted in history. We believe that every child deserves to fit in, to feel like they’re on the inside. Above all, we believe in the potential of our students.
We are committed to whole-child development, and our educational approach adapts to the individual needs and learning styles of each student. We empower our students to move past their learning obstacles so they may experience success and a sense of pride in their abilities. At KGMS, you will see dynamic and capable children who are thriving and finding joy in learning.

KGMS is located in the heart of a safe, residential neighborhood in North Vancouver. Just minutes from the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge and 20 minutes from downtown Vancouver, KGMS occupies an expansive tree-lined acreage in the shadow of Mount Seymour. Across the street is Maplewood Farm, a fully functioning urban farm complete with donkeys and pot-belly pigs. All of our students receive an annual membership to Maplewood Farm, which provides a wealth of hands-on learning opportunities. KGMS students come from across the Lower Mainland, and families often relocate from other cities or provinces in order to meet their child’s educational needs. With its close proximity to downtown Vancouver and wealth of outdoor opportunities, North Vancouver is an ideal home for children and parents alike. KGMS’s busing program makes commuting from outside of North Vancouver convenient and easy.
