About Us


Halifax Independent School is a diverse community of enthusiastic educators, students, and their families. We are a private day school for students in pre-school through grade 9. For 40 years we have been learning and loving it – achieving academic excellence at every level of education in a co-operative and respectful environment. In addition to the warmth and depth of our programme in class, children broaden their horizons with specialist instruction in French, Music and Swimming. We dedicate ourselves to offering children a joyful and meaningful educational experience.

At Halifax Independent, education is focused on the whole child: intellectual, emotional, physical and social. We understand that a happy child learns best and that each child learns and develops in many different ways. Our small, multi-age classes allow teachers to challenge and support each child in ways that recognize the uniqueness of individuals while emphasizing co-operation and respect for others. Learning and loving it happens hand-in-hand with a sense of discovery and enjoyment.

Our curriculum is thorough in all areas, solid and time-tested, allowing each child to fulfil the desire to know, see and do more – and to consistently reach their potential along the way. The theme-based learning that we pioneered forty years ago, and which is now a major international approach in education, is the core of our academic programmes. It emphasizes active, experiential learning as a means to ingrain the basics and explore the world.

We know that an integrated approach and a love of learning are the best ways to address the needs of the whole child. A Halifax Independent School foundation bears fruit as our students become confident, socially adept and motivated learners – a gift that lasts a lifetime.
