The teaching team at Blyth Etobicoke always demonstrated passion and dedication, to the students and the school community as a whole. Finding ways to connect with the students at their level, figuring out how they learn best, and meeting them where they are. Communication with parents is first-rate, I could always ask questions, email, or meet in person and felt as though we worked collaboratively to make sure my son could get the most out of his lessons and time at school. Every class our son participated in was well presented, with real-life examples and teachings connected to our son's age and interests. Lessons were fun and engaging and he learned through discussion, which really worked for him. Some teachers that we will no doubt remember later in life, will be Blyth Etoboicoke teachers for my son.
The teachers at Blyth are well-qualified and very passionate about their subject areas. Despite small class sizes, the teachers ensure students are exposed to practical learning experiences in and out of the classroom - labs, field trips, etc. The various Blyth campuses pool resources when needed to allow for experiences that would otherwise only be possible at a larger school. Support is always available, either at afternoon studio sessions or through the teachers making themselves available for one on one interactions with the students. Parents are regularly updated on progress, facilitated by Edsby, and automated system for communication. The four-term structure allows the students to really dig into their courses and facilitates communication with parents with four sets of parent-teacher interviews per year.
