Our School Story

Hugh Boyd Secondary School is located in the Seafair area of Richmond, British Columbia with approximately 650 students. The surrounding community has a wide range of socio-economic levels and a diverse cultural demographic. We are also home to some 65 international students who are in British Columbia to experience a full English immersion education. There are seven elementary schools that feed into Hugh Boyd. 

At Boyd, we pride ourselves on being:

1) inclusive

2) diverse

3) a close-knit school community

We offer a range of program choices to support our diverse student population. We are home to Combined Studies, an alternate education program to support Grade 11 and 12 students who have struggled in a mainstream setting. In addition, Boyd's Incentive program challenges students to achieve academic and personal excellence. It is designed to meet the needs of high ability students with potential leadership qualities. Boyd also hosts an all-encompassing Learning Centre and Resource Program, with a substantive team of resource teachers and EAs who support students with diverse abilities. Finally, we are the only school in Richmond to host the International Baccaleureate Middle Years' Programme (IB MYP). We share a common philosophy with other IB World Schools —a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Hugh Boyd Secondary School believes is important for our students. 

The inclusive, diverse, close-knit community of Hugh Boyd Secondary School is characterizied by our mission statement:

"Hugh Boyd develops compassionate and respectful young adults who are well-balanced, principled inquirers with an understanding of their responsibilities within society and as global citizens. Students balance academic excellence with attributes that allow them to realize their potential as whole learners in a dynamic and complex world."
