Welcome to Canada’s first girls' STEM school

Established in 1908, St. Margaret’s School is an independent day and boarding school located in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

A second home to students from around the world, SMS has an international reputation as a centre for inquiry-based learning, academic excellence, and girls’ leadership development. We provide empowering education for girls at all levels: starting in the elementary grades, our students are given the support and challenges they need to grow and excel straight through middle school and on to successful graduation in Grade 12 (Day School: Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12 | Boarding: Grades 7–12).

At St. Margaret’s, your daughter will see every day that girls can do anything and everything, and will acquire the skills and attitudes to thrive in her studies, her career, and in life. After all, it’s not about equal opportunity; girls here get every opportunity.
