Lynn Valley Schools
Many Lynn Valley families were originally attracted to this community by the quality of our four five public elementary schools and two secondary schools. All are part of North Vancouver School District 44, which boasts unique offerings such as an unparalleled band and strings program, early and late French Immersion streams, Artists for Kids camps and workshops, accredited apprenticeships opportunities, and an Outdoor School near Squamish, which allows students the chance to camp in cabins for a week while learning about the coastal rainforest environment.

A number of private preschools operate in Lynn Valley neighbourhoods, and two elementary schools in the community (Eastview and Boundary) offer StrongStart BC, a free, daily drop-in program for preschoolers and their parents or caregivers.
Lynn Valley is also home to a number of innovative private schools, such as BrocktonPreparatory School located near Lynn Canyon Park. It runs from Kindergarten to Grade 11, with Grade 12 coming in 2013-14. Brockton School is a co-ed, International Baccalaureate World School (PYP & MYP); Grade 11 and grade 12 follow the BC graduation program.
Near the foot of the Second Narrows Bridge, Kenneth Gordon Maplewood School offers a Grade One to 8 program tailored to students with dyslexia and other specific learning disabities, and the Vancouver Waldorf School (preschool to Grade 9) operates just off Lynn Valley Road. Another unique school in Lynn Valley is Ecole francaise internationale de Vancouver; from the age of three, children learn French by following the requirements of both the French Ministry of National Education and the British Columbia Ministry of Education.
