Info for International Families

International Schools for Children with Learning Disabilities

Around 40 per cent of students currently enrolled in our schools are international students. Over the years, we have had students from around the world – including Australia, the United Kingdom, Indonesia, the United States, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Ecuador, the United Arab Emirates, Belize, Taipei, the Netherlands, Thailand and Turkey – attend our schools. International professionals in the field of special education have also visited EA from as far away as Brazil, Mexico, Peru, Japan and Australia. We work hard to make our international families feel welcome at school and in their new homes in Canada. This part of our website is intended to provide you with some helpful information about our campuses and moving to Canada.

Vancouver Guide

Several parents of international students at Eaton Arrowsmith have created a Guide to Vancouver with information and tips for students and families relocating to the city as well as a Guide to Shops and Restaurants in Vancouver. Please note that Eaton Arrowsmith does not endorse any service or business listed in this guide, and that this guide is not intended to serve as a substitute for professional, legal or financial advice.

 

I cannot imagine where my daughter would be now – at age 13 and in grade eight – if she had not completed three years at EA.
