  • the chance to make a significant and lasting positive change in the lives of children with learning and attentional disabilities;
  • the opportunity to be a vocal leader in revolutionizing special education in the province of British Columbia;

Eaton Arrowsmith School Vancouver and Magnussen School are two cutting edge schools that use best practices found in neuroplasticity and social-emotional learning to offer life changing programs for our students.

Eaton Arrowsmith School Vancouver (EAS) is part of a larger set of private schools and learning centers in British Columbia, Canada, and in Washington State that offer the Arrowsmith Program. The Arrowsmith Program, used in 100 schools around the world, is based in neuroplasticity, which is the ability of the brain to essentially rewire itself with training. Supported by 40 years of experience, the Arrowsmith Program links neuroplasticity and education by demonstrating that it is possible for individuals to strengthen the weak brain functions underlying their learning difficulties through an individualized program of specific cognitive exercises. This transforms our students’ lives by bringing them greater independence and increased cognitive, social, and academic abilities. With all of this comes greater school, career, and relationship options and successes than they ever previously believed were possible. EAS Vancouver has students from grade 1 to grade 12, and our students stay with us for three years on average to achieve the necessary amount of cognitive change. After completing their Arrowsmith Program, students transition back into the educational system or school of their choosing.

Magnussen School is an elementary school where students belong because of their differences and passions, and don’t need to “fit the mold” to find social and academic success. Magnussen School is based on attachment theory and brings this alive in creative, student-centered programing where every day starts with one hour of outdoor play, frequently in the forest. Magnussen students are creative “outside the box” thinkers who often have great abilities and receive any needed support for their weaknesses. Technology and encouraging students’ passions are a focus in this rich learning environment.
