QBES is located between the shores of the Salish Sea and the lush Vancouver Island Rainforest. Our staff and students take full advantage of our natural environment on regular walks through the cedars and trips to the beach. Our Mountain Bike Club enjoys various woodland destinations on their weekly treks. The Musical Theatre Club offers several performances each year. Students in our STREAM program constantly surprises us with their technological innovations. Being a former middle school, we are well-equipped to offer Tech/Shop opportunities as well as Home Ec and Drama. Our students work conscientiously at their fitness. QBES offers excellent learning opportunities in 17 classrooms K-7. QBES follows the WITS program of conflict resolution.
Our student population is a little under 400 students who enjoy the outdoors and are supported by a team of energetic teachers, super-caring Education Assistants, and many skilled specialist teachers. Our Office Clerical staff and Principal and Vice-Principal team would welcome your visit!
