VISII is an inquiry-based school founded in 2020 by parents and educators and granted interim status as an independent school by the Ministry of Education on July 1, 2021.
Inquiry learning puts students and their questions first. Inquiry mobilizes students’ curiosity and creativity, empowering them for a lifetime of deep learning and transformative action.
VISII is located on the lower level of the Cridge Centre for the Family at 1307 Hillside Avenue, near Cook Street. VISII learners have access to the meadows and play structures on the Cridge grounds. Indoors, our learners enjoy a bright open rooms, a kitchen, and a maker space.
Through our school start-up process, we are being mentored by Jeff Hopkins, Principal and Founder of the Pacific School of Innovation and Inquiry (PSII), the inquiry-based high school in Victoria, BC. Our learning approach is adapted from PSII’s materials.
