All About Meadowridge

Founded in 1985, Meadowridge School was a culmination of ideas by a dedicated group of parents who saw a need for better educational choices in the community. Since that time, the school has made great strides from its humble beginnings with 85 students in a ramshackle collection of mobile classrooms on rented property. Today, Meadowridge is a modern facility located on 27 acres of land with an enrollment of over 600 students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12.

Meadowridge is an International Baccalaureate (IB) Continuum World School, accredited through multiple organizations. We celebrate teaching and learning through the most balanced, demanding, and international curriculum in the world, and have built a culture which enables it: a community of families who believe that children best learn in a culture of conscious caring, academic challenge, clear and high expectation, constant communication, intercultural understanding, collaboration with families, creative teaching, and inviting and open facilities. We help children reach their potential in an environment of care where they are dignified and treated with kindness. 

At Meadowridge, we contribute much of our success to our dedicated and hard-working staff. Our tight-knit organization provides a healthy life/work balance, with numerous events for staff throughout the year and a Mission to "live well with others and for others in a just community". We ensure that Meadowridge is a place where you will enjoy coming to work every day!
