King David High School is a pluralistic, community, and co-educational Jewish high school in the Oakridge district of Vancouver. The school, initially known as Maimonides Secondary School, opened in September 1987 with nine students in Grade 8. It was housed in three rooms on the upper floor of Schara Tzedeck Synagogue. Each year a grade was added and in June 1991, the first graduating class emerged. In 1992, the school moved to Baillie Street and continued to grow.

In 1998, the Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver established a Community Task Force to study the concept of building a new Jewish high school. During that time period, the name and legal governance changed to Talmud Torah High School.

In 2005, spearheaded by the vision and philanthropy of the Diamond Foundation, King David High School opened the doors to a new facility. The high school is located on the corner of Willow and 41st Avenue, in close proximity to the Vancouver Jewish Community Centre.

King David is the largest Jewish high school west of Winnipeg. The unique feature of King David High School is its dynamic, integrated – general and Judaic studies – dual curriculum.

King David focuses on pursuing rigorous academics while offering relentless support. Throughout its history, King David has developed leaders and visionaries who now play important roles in supporting both the local and global communities.
