My son had attended a school with 1,500 students from grade 7 to 12, with an average class size of 25 students. Finishing at 17 years of age, he decided to do a lap year to enhance his marks and to give himself an extra year to decide on a university program. He chose Blyth Academy, Lawrence Park (LP) to repeat his last year. From the very 1st day, Blyth welcomed him and made him feel like family!
With only 250 students from grades 7 to 12, Blyth LP’s class size is in the range of 6 to 10 students, some as low as 4. With this ratio, Blyth’s teachers can provide my son with Individual attention. Teachers are youthful, energetic, and versed in many teaching methods. With only 2 subjects per term or less, my son is able to concentrate more fully on each subject with a marked improvement.
Blyth also has a mentorship program, where students can request a teacher to be their mentor. My son benefits from meeting with his mentor over lunch or a walk, and this teacher has become an important support to him. The principal, Luke Coles and the administrative staff, work with students, teachers and staff to ensure student success and provide many alternative opportunities for any concerns. At Blyth, each student is guaranteed success because of the individual care provided. Blyth Academy is an amazing school.
This last year of my son’s pre-university education has been a wonderful year for him and for us. His marks are outstanding! He is part of many clubs including the student council. He has grown in many ways, including his self-confidence and self-esteem. We have made good friends with the staff and teachers and he feels good about his choice of program at university.
I wish to thank everyone at Blyth Academy Lawrence Park for providing this incredible year for my son! I wish everyone the best and hope we all keep in touch as good friends in the future.
