This school has been established with the support of 25 years of experience in school management in Iran and about 10 years of experience in running an official Iranian school in Vancouver with the following goals:

Reduce the stress of entering the Canadian education system, especially for newcomers
Considering the expectations of the Iranian society with more emphasis on academic education along with teaching individual social skills
Preserving Iranian cultural values in the new generation of immigrants alongside teaching positive Canadian values
Reduce parents’ worries about culture shock to their children
Possibility of studying simultaneously in both Canadian and Iranian educational systems by substituting Persian courses instead of elective courses


Vanda Canadian School benefits students by encouraging independent thinking and self-directed learning in a student-centered environment, fostering high achievement and academic excellence, educating them within a values-based setting, providing learning experiences that develop life skills, promoting self-discipline, and preparing youngsters for success in life, effective problem solving, perseverance and concentration. We are helping students build a portfolio of educational experiences that will highlight their strengths and help provide direction for further learning.

Core Beliefs:

We believe that each student has special worth and should be honored since they are all gifted and can learn. We also believe in collaboration within our community as communication among students, parents, teachers and the community promotes positive and meaningful changes in our school. Our teachers nurture and challenge all students and use multiple approaches to engage students to learn and promote achievement through their critical thinking. We bring the community into the schools through well-designed volunteer programs, mentoring, and combining school with a selection of cultural and social service activities.

Our Values

We are a student-centered school committed to the successful development of our students and communities. Vanda Canadian School instills integrity, respect, perseverance, excellence, resilience, diversity, curiosity, and inclusion values in all members of our family.
