Secondary School Overview

Saanich International Students have three Secondary Schools to choose from – Parkland, Stelly's or Claremont.

Each school enrolls grades 9-12 students from their local neighborhoods, or 'catchment areas' all within convenient walking or driving distance to school. 

As (B.C.) public schools, Parkland, Stelly's and Claremont must provide the same Compulsory Curriculum and only differ in some Elective areas, Programs of Choice and Extra-curricular Activities. 

All three schools boast attractive buildings, modern facilities and spacious playing fields and celebrate strong traditions in Academics, Athletics, Performing Arts, Technology and Student Engagement, illustrating the District motto, “Saanich Schools, Great Places to Learn and Safe Places to Be!”

For more detailed descriptions of each school, see the document, “Saanich Secondary Schools -Similarities and Differences” and also check out the School Websites and Video Tours through the links on this page

Parkland Secondary School is a candidate school* for the Diploma Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Parkland Secondary School believes is important for our students. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
