Principal's Message

Lee Venditti, Principal

Welcome to J.Addison School, home of the Flames! Our school is comprised of committed staff, involved parents, and a group of very enthusiastic students. The rich academic program challenges EVERY student to set and reach ambitious, intellectual and personal goals. J. Addison's extensive extra-curricular activities provide physical and social avenues to match a wide range of student interests. The staff and students of J. Addison are looking forward to all students having a rewarding high school experience. At J. Addison we believe learning occurs in an environment that contains positive interpersonal relationships and interactions, comfort and order, and in which the learner feels appreciated, acknowledged, respected, and appreciated.

J. Addison School is not just a building. J. Addison School is not just a group of classrooms with students in them. J. Addison School is not just reading, writing and arithmetic. My definition of the name “J. Addison School” is more of a concept. It is the interaction of different people with a common focus..educating students to their highest level of ability. But the term “education” is not just learning content, facts and processes, but how to be successful in life. At J. Addison we continue to grow and we are proud that we ‘educate our students not to cut down jungles, but to irrigate deserts'.

Student Testimonial

I was preparing to go into grade 10; although my grades were above average, I was really worried about my education and future. My friend told me about a J. Addison School Orientation and I thought it would be worthwhile to attend. At the orientation meeting, I got to know a lot more about studying abroad and the J. Addison Advantage. I felt that I would not be able to get into university in China and therefore, I decided to continue my education at J. Addison School in Canada. Luckily, my parents were very supportive. Because my grades were decent and thanks to the individualized ESL program and assistance from the teachers in applying to university, I got accepted at University of Toronto within a year. I found a job in Toronto after I graduated and I also applied to become a legal immigrant in Canada. Choosing J. Addison School was definitely a life-changing experience.    ...



Student Testimonial

When I was in Singapore, I did not have any study goals, my grades were bad. Luckily I chose to study at J. Addison School in Canada; because the teachers were constantly giving me support, they helped me discover my learning goals. I started to concentrate more on my studies and build my confidence. I got into the University of Toronto majoring in Life Science, and I also received a scholarship. I graduated from the University of Toronto with an Honours degree after 4 years of hard work and I continued my post-graduate education at the University of Chicago for my medical degree.  ...



Student Testimonial

"I have been studying at J. Addison School for about three months now. At first, I felt it was very hard to study in Canada because my English was not the best. I was worried that when I first came here, the teachers would not understand me. But it was actually the opposite. The teachers were very nice and welcoming. All of the teachers and fellow students explained things to me in a way I could understand. I have made great progress in English. The teachers use different ways to teach us and show us new skills. For example, we use technology, workbooks, and games to better our skills. Although studying in Canada can be challenging at times, I am happy to study and be a part of J. Addison School." ...
