Maple Grove is a public elementary school in the Kerrisdale area of Vancouver. Our focus is student leadership, technology and academic success. We are the centre of a caring community led by our Parent Advisory Council – a community that “cares deeply, shares generously and helps willingly.”

We offer two different programs. One is the child-centered Montessori Program emphasizing responsibility for one’s own learning and independence. The other is the Traditional Program using a traditional teaching style emphasizing student engagement, academic excellence, hard work and effort while at the same time incorporating modern technology through the use of SmartBoards and Ipads. We have about 470 students from Kindergarten to Grade 7. We offer a fine library, an excellent sports program and the opportunity to join the Maple Grove band. Students may also join a chess club, a math club or a creative crafts club. There are often after school opportunities such as Lego Robotics or baby sitting courses. Student leadership is encouraged through membership of the Global Citizenship Club and student representation on student council. Our students also serve the school in a number of ways as part of their contribution to our caring community.

Maple Grove Elementary is located at 6199 Cypress Street, near the heart of Kerrisdale in Vancouver, B.C.  It has two new playgrounds as well as sharing extensive playing fields and tennis courts with the adjacent high school, Magee Secondary. Built in 1924 originally, it has experienced many additions and renovations over the years. In 2003, Maple Grove underwent a full heating, ventilation and plumbing systems’ upgrade. In 2006, the undercover area was seismically upgraded.

Maple Grove  has approximately 500 students and 50 staff members, including classroom teachers, a librarian, resource teachers, supervision aides, district instructors, support workers, and office and engineering staff. There are twenty-two divisions of children in Kindergarten through Grade 7.

Students at Maple Grove are provided with a balanced curriculum focusing on basic skills, academic excellence, and social and physical well-being. The students are given opportunities to extend their knowledge by taking a number of school-related field trips. At the Grade 6 level, for example, they attend a yearly 3 or 4 day outdoor school experience which focuses on an understanding of the environment and the impact that we have on the health of our planet.

The school boundaries go from 41st Avenue on the north to 57th Avenue on the south.  The boundary also extends from Larch Street  on the west to Granville Street on the east.  Exact catchment area  determination, however, would need to be confirmed by calling the  school. The school  is located directly  adjacent to Magee Secondary.  The two schools share facilities such as the tennis courts, grass field and the Magee Auditorium.

Maple Grove Song

T’was built in nineteen twenty four, so brave and proud and strong. Where students and our athletes too are learning right from wrong.

It’s Maple Grove – the school where we all do our best

It’s Maple Grove – with red and black upon our crest  

In sports we challenge everyone and try right to the end

And even though we might not win, each rival is our friend

It’s Maple Grove – the school where we all do our best

It’s Maple Grove – with red and black upon our crest

We know that we’re all diff-er-ent in very many ways

At Maple Grove we also know that different is OK

It’s Maple Grove – the school where we all do our best

It’s Maple Grove – with red and black upon our crest

 

Our math and socials, science too are fun at MGS

And when we’re asked to help our school the answer’s always, “Yes”

It’s Maple Grove – the school where we all do our best

It’s Maple Grove – with red and black upon our crest

Oh we are loyal to our school and feel we all belong

At Maple Grove our favourite school, together we are strong.
