You know that voice inside your head telling you to jump higher, score better, think deeper, dream bigger, sing louder?


What about that urge you’ve always had to push your limits, challenge your thinking, build incredible friendships and seek out experiences that are…well, extraordinary?


We’re happy to tell you that voice inside you urging you to be more will be right at home here.


I write this message to you not just as Headmaster of KES, but as a parent. My wife Belinda and I have twins (Skyla and Albert) in grade 9. Kyle graduated four years ago and Mackenzie in June 2013. We see for how ourselves enriching and fun the school is and we love the way they have all embraced the challenge of 'more': doing more, competing more, caring more, and learning more.  Their journey at KES is as much a part of my confidence in the School as our own experiences. After all, Belinda and I live on campus and are immersed in the excitement and energy of the daily routines of KES. It is our home too.


As much as I personally love the campus of KES and appreciate our superb facilities, what impresses me most is the quality of the people who work with such unsurpassed passion and professionalism. Dedicated to the ideals of gentleness and learning, dignity and respect, contained in the KES Mission Statement, the staff ensures that the School is a safe place – emotionally and physically – for all students. This makes it home for everyone.


KES is a diverse educational community. Students from throughout Canada and across the globe (21 different nations this year) come to challenge themselves in the classroom, or in the theatre, the Concert Hall, the Art studio, in leadership, the Chapel, or the playing fields – sometimes in all areas of School life! And so the student body is composed of boys and girls of all ages and all backgrounds. It is a truly unique family.


The achievements of KES students are remarkable. Scholars and athletes and musicians and artists abound. As a parent I am thrilled that my children’s friends are focused on excellence and achieving their best in all areas of life at KES. I am excited for them.


I hope that you will come and visit the School and see firsthand why this is such a spectacular place.
