(5) Student Experience

Best school in Calgary. All teachers are very nice, kind and helpful. Guidance at all points. They teach the concepts in a such a positive way and let the child learn at his/her own pace. Diane Siawtek, the Principal is a sweetheart, generous, energetic and specialist at dealing with conflicts between kids. Kids are always super happy at the school. My daughter started with the school in 2017, loves her school, teachers and all the apprentissage. Our daughter has made leaps and bounds academically, and socially. She is appreciated by her teacher and peers and feels safe in her school.

(5) School Leadership

Clear and effective communication with students and their parents. They keep parents informed and involved in all school activities. They give wings to students with positive concepts and let them fly on their own which helps students to show their creative side more and more. They always give students to pour out their ideas and feedback. They let students decide their own learning pace.

Teachers are passionate and knowledgeable with very positive attitude. Effective and very clear communication at all time. Kind behaviour of the teachers at Banbury Crossroads School enhances and sharpens kids abilities to do their everyday tasks and activities.
