How Vancouver high schools compare

About half of all Vancouver School Board students attend a school outside their catchment area, and a majority of those chose schools on the city's west side.

The result is empty desks in the east and crowded schools in west. It's a problem playing out across the country, and some fear that by jumping boundaries, parents are undermining schools in some parts of their communities.

Above, we've used darker colours to represent areas where enrolment exceeds capacity at high schools within the catchment area.
