Testimonials
[The IB] was the best thing I could have done to prepare me for university. Because of the IB, I was able to skip first-year university and go straight into second year.

I attended two other private schools on Vancouver Island. What sets Brookes apart is the holistic approach to education. The arts were valued just as much as science and mathematics.
