Best Schools in Kelowna 2021-2022

Are you Moving to Kelowna? And you’re wondering where exactly you need to live, so you can make sure your kids attend the very best schools in Kelowna.

In this blog post, I’ll be covering all there is to know about the schools in Kelowna, and I’ll be providing you with links to download your very own school catchment maps.

So When selecting the best school in Kelowna, there is a lot for you to consider. Here are a few questions to ask yourself when choosing the ideal location for your child’s school in Kelowna.

Questions to ask yourself!

  • Do you want your child to go to a school within walking distance of your home?
  • Can your child’s talents be nurtured outside your neighbourhood?
  • How far are you willing to have your child bused?
  • How far are you willing to drive your child to school?
  • Does your child want to be in a school with their friends?
  • Do you want your child to go to a school near your after-school care? Near where you work? Near a close relative?
  • Does your child have any special transportation needs that must be considered in choosing a school?

Every parent wants the best school for their child. How do you know it’s the best, and how do you go about finding the best schools in Kelowna.

So this section was supposed to give you some information about the Fraser Institute school rankings. Still, it appears the website is not working and that there hopefully doing much-needed updates to improve the website. It was long overdue!

But what I was going to talk about in the second part of this section Was after you’ve done your research and narrowed it down to a few areas or a few schools, but you’re still not sure if the school is all it is cracked up to be. I recommend for you to get on Facebook and search under the group section for (school name) (neighbourhood name) and do a search and join as many groups as you’d like and don’t be shy to post your questions and concerns, helpful parents will come running to tell you what they love and what they don’t love. This allows you to learn the nitty-gritty that you won’t find anywhere else.

Start your search on our Explore Page, where you can view all of the Okanagan neighbourhoods.

Start by exploring all our neighbourhoods and learning more about each one with our in-depth neighbourhood guides.

You’ll see a neighbourhood map for every neighbourhood. These will show you the schools, places to eat and drink, things to do, and local real estate hot spots.

Now, these maps on my site are super helpful, there not just there for show! I have personally added every school in Kelowna on this map and included the individual school’s information, grades they offer, address, website, and phone number.

Using this map is easy. Say you want to see all of the elementary schools in Kelowna, head up to the top of the map and click filters, and select elementary schools. The map will automatically display only the elementary schools in Kelowna and nothing else. You can do this for any of the schools.

If you’re having trouble with any of this, just reach out to me, I’ve spent the last month writing, researching and learning all about the schools in Kelowna, and I’d love nothing more than to answer your questions.

Here is an overview of the education options when it comes to the best schools in Kelowna. As of right now, there are nineteen elementary schools, five middle schools, four high schools and two post-secondary schools. All of this information has been provided by Central Okanagan Public Schools district 23’s website.
