Review of Braemar House School
Anna Nemeth - Parent (Nov 07, 2018)
You get a really warm welcoming feeling whenever you step into Braemar - from the staff and the students! All the kids seems to know each other, acting like a big family with the older kids helping and interacting with the younger kids. The students are so respectful when you pop into the school, they treat adults with respect and are proud of their school. The uniforms are a great asset and keep the students looking neat and "uniform" in their appearance. Our son, being the "new kid" has been warmly welcomed by his peers and feels "like he has always been there" - you never hear him say he doesn't want to go to school - it is such a positive environment and he is thriving!

The BHS community is small (<150 students) and it has a wonderful tone. BHS hallways are filled with laughter and it is common to see an older student helping a younger one with laces or mittens or snow suits (without being prompted!). Doors are held open for others and polite, kind behaviours are encouraged and rewarded. BHS has a strong school spirit and children are proud of their community. They focus on the 'virtue of the month' and teachers and students strive to embrace virtues of 'patience', 'perseverance', 'honesty', 'kindness'. The atmosphere of BHS is warm and loving and tolerant. Children learn to be the change they wish to see in their community. It is remarkable to see BHS work it's magic and create wonderful citizens. As a parent with two children who have gone through BHS, I must insist that the school has played a huge role in helping us raise them as honest, kind, thoughtful, curious learners.
