About Victoria

The heart of Victoria School lies in the joy to learn, the passion to create and the wonder of discovery. Victoria School of the Arts offers a dynamic and diverse program designed to challenge you academically, while encouraging you to explore and develop your unique artistic skills and talents. Staff and students consistently bring their best as they work collaboratively to inspire an atmosphere of creativity, self-discipline, integrity and dedication, which invites all students to excel in their arts and in their academic pursuits.

The arts have the power to transform the learning experience.  They provide the foundation for a rich and meaningful education nurturing authentic connections across the curriculum in partnership with a strong and rigorous academic program. We know that creativity, ingenuity, empathy and innovation are the keys to success in today’s complex, changing world and as such, Victoria students are fortunate to attend the district’s only K-12 school offering arts programming in Dance, Music, Visual Art, Media and Drama within the framework of the International Baccalaureate Programme.

At Victoria School students are invited to build upon their creative capacity to inquire with deep curiosity, to think unconventionally, to question the norm and imagine and reflect on new perspectives in order to become more passionate and compassionate members of the local and global community.

To walk through the doors of the school and into our vibrant hallways, is often enough for visitors to sense an energy that is unlike any other school.  This atmosphere is nurtured by a respect for community, creativity and responsibility that extends from individual to ensemble.  This must be what leads so many of our students and families to say that Victoria School of the Arts feels like ‘home’!
