A second home to local girls and 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 with the foundational skills built by our pioneering early learning program and 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. Our boarding school program for Grades 7–12 attracts girls from around the world and enriches learning experiences for all students.

Empowering education for girls of all ages

We’re delighted you are considering St. Margaret’s School for your daughter's education. If there is one word we can offer to help you make this decision, it’s “fit.” Each girl is different and only she and the people closest to her can determine which school is the best “fit” for her and will provide her with the opportunities she is looking for. We encourage you to explore our website to discover everything that makes St. Margaret’s an exceptional place to learn. We also know our website can only tell you so much – we’re here to help you learn more about our school and welcome you to ask us questions, come for a tour or even spend a day as an SMS student.
