Schools in Nanaimo

 Why Searching by School is Important?

Of all of the important decision you make as a parent, selecting the right school for your child is near the top of the list in terms of importance and long-term implications. A solid decision will see you children in a positive learning environment supported by inspiring teachers and surrounded by a peer group with similar interests who will bring out the best in your child. The right decision puts your child on a path towards a bright future, while the wrong choice...let's just try and help you avoid that...  

Vancouver Island Property Search is the first Nanaimo Real Estate search site that actually allows you to search for homes that fall into the catchment areas of your school of choice. Searching by school catchment area ensures that if you have a particular school in mind, you will be able to quickly and conveniently review all current home listings in town that would have your child attending that school. 

Public Schools


Searching by School: Click any of the schools by name on the right sidebar to see all current listings for that school catchment area. 

School Locator: Since catchment areas can change from time-to-time and certain boundaries are not exact, please use the School Locator provided by School District 68 to verify that properties will indeed have your child attending your school of choice.

***Disclaimer: With catchment areas subject to change and boundaries not exact, please do not make home purchase decisions on this information alone without verifying the catchment area of the particular address with the school district.
