Braemar House School

"Students from all grades interact with each other and older students help the younger students during recess."

Tatyana Zebroski - Alumnus   (Sep 15, 2021)

I attended Braemar from grade 6 to grade 8 and I really loved my time there. Braemar has a great school environment/community, academics, and extra-curricular activities (I especially enjoyed participating in our yearly musicals). I was able and encouraged to seek out leadership opportunities within our school community. Many special traditions and activities make Braemar unique, including the monthly assemblies, holiday celebrations (i.e. the Thanksgiving lunch and winter holiday concert), oppo... View full review

"They always made sure that everything in the school was running smoothly and you can tell that they are very passionate about their work."

Alyssa Bocskay - Alumnus   (Sep 15, 2021)

My experience at Braemar was always a positive one. Everyday at school the teachers greeted people with a smile, and it was always evident that they really enjoyed teaching. There's a real sense of community within the school, and it feels like family. I really enjoyed that I had the opportunity to learn in a hands-on environment. My favourite part of the year was the annual school musical. The whole school participates in some way, and it brings everybody together. The one thing that I would ch... View full review

"The curriculum guide is very detailed and provides information about subjects in each child's grade as well as their citizenship and leadership programs."

Jaime Thibodeau - Parent   (May 03, 2021)

We have two boys that attend Braemar House School, currently in grades 4 and 2. They both began at Braemar in the Montessori program. This was a new pedagogy for our family and it suited my active, inquisitive kids very well. They had the freedom to move through the activities but with a structure that showed them responsibility at a young age. There were many hands-on activities that promoted fine and gross motor skills, a favourite was the Roman Arch. Both boys learned how to read by the middl... View full review

"The teachers consistently create lessons and units that allow students to experience the curriculum in a hands-on manner with modern and advanced teaching tools."

Sarah Stevenson - Parent   (May 03, 2021)

Braemar House School is like another home for our child. She feels not only supported there, but also cared for, as if the students and faculty were an extension of her family. She is proud to bring home and share new skills and knowledge that she learns. She has also gained confidence to try new activities and to tackle unfamiliar and increasingly complex problems. In the two years that she has attended, she has made many new friends. She loves the varied activities during the physical educatio... View full review

"...for the first time in his young life, he felt safe enough, secure enough, to not only start to speak with adults and participate in class but to put himself on stage"

Laura Maddison - Parent   (May 03, 2021)

I have two children at BHS. My youngest joined the school and had selective mutism, he had not spoken directly to a teacher through his kindergarten experience and preschool was not much better. He joined BHS in Grade 1 and in that first year he chose to join the talent show. I have no idea what it was that, for the first time in his young life, he felt safe enough, secure enough, to not only start to speak with adults and participate in class but to put himself on stage in front of the entire s...

"When we saw the need for extra help with one of our child's reading, a program was put in place and it was successful."

Becky Larmer - Parent   (Jun 24, 2020)

Our children's experience at Braemar House School was a positive one for many reasons. Our children really enjoyed the school environment, interactions with other students and staff, extracurricular programs, sports programs, and the various social opportunities throughout the school year. Braemar House School is a very welcoming school environment and gives families the sense of a community feeling. The staff and students are eager to welcome new students to the classrooms. There are many e... View full review

"The school leadership goes above and beyond any school I've seen or even read about. They take the safety and well-being of the entire community..."

Joe Restoule General - Parent   (Feb 28, 2019)

I believe my child appreciates that the environment at Braemar House School allows her to be herself. She enjoys all the opportunities and activities offered, both within and outside of the school. From the expansive arts experiences (wide range of visual art creation, musical instrument education, dramatic arts musical performance) to the clubs and academic extras (robotics, chess, Me to We) and the greatly supported athletic teams and events. She appreciates the dedication of the staff to supp... View full review

"One of the things I love most about Braemar is how the students interact with one another and with other members of the school community."

Kate Rossiter - Parent   (Feb 21, 2019)

Both my kids attend Braemar, and both started when they were three. In our first year, as the mother of a very shy, very young child, I was nervous about how our transition would go. I had no reason to be nervous. In Braemar my children have found their second home. They are loved and supported to be exactly who they are by not only their classroom teachers, but the entire staff. The net effect is that they, along with their classmates, feel safe and happy. As an educator, I know that thes... View full review

"...the academic level was much lower at his old school and at Braemar the educators are all on board and eager to help out our son achieve his best!"

Anna Nemeth - Parent   (Nov 07, 2018)

Our son enrolled in Braemar House School in Sep 2018. We had considered Braemar for many years, but thought it was important for our son to go to our neighbourhood school. After some sub-par experiences at our neighbourhood school we considered Braemar House School again and after meeting with the Executive Director, the principal and an educator we enthusiastically enrolled our son! He enrolled in grade 6 in September 2018 and we have found the education level to be far superior to his previ... View full review

"BHS was the best investment we could have made for our children."

Rebecca Rooney - Parent   (Nov 06, 2018)

We have been lucky enough to have two children at BHS. Each value different aspects of the school. Our daughter appreciated the small class size and the one-on-one attention. Teachers are able, on a daily basis, to spend personal time with each student- helping, encouraging, correcting and directing them to help make their academic experience unique and personalized. The small class size also made it possible to conduct interesting chemistry experiments, cooking lessons, complete amazing geo... View full review
