Established in 1958, the Halifax Grammar School is the leading independent, co-educational day school in Atlantic Canada.
At Grammar, we believe all students should discover their passions and develop their potential. Every day, we prepare students for university and life by developing confidence and independence through a balanced curriculum in academics, athletics, altruism, and the arts—because when young people recognize their reason and purpose in life, they always make the world a better place.
Today’s Grammar School enrols 570 students in one campus from Junior Primary to Grade 12.
