Toronto, ON | Grades NS - 6 | Shortlist
Our children absolutely love going to CMS. They have a fondness for their teachers to the point where they are considered extended family, and they love their friends. In fact, we have managed to broaden our own social circles to include parents of our children's friends - many of whom have become very dear friends that we see socially now outside of school events and even do other outside activities with. Ski clubs, piano lessons, martial arts classes - even travel with! We feel fortunate to have this network or community within the school of like-minded parents that can share ideas with, share experiences with. It is an added benefit of CMS. This also extends to parents who have gone on and left CMS now that their children are older.
My children enjoy the experiments, lessons, projects as well as the sports offered with their friends. Their gym program includes many different types of sports and games that help develop their teamwork and leadership skills. There's also the weekly house league sports (pre-covid) in elementary, where the children can choose to join a sport of their choice for the term; there's floor hockey, soccer, basektball, baseball etc. CMS' library room and computer room are also a great resource with the kids. In their computer classes, they are exposed to keyboarding lessons and coding games to develop their interest in computer literacy. Internet safety is also taught with use of educational videos and demonstrations, and reviewed with the children to promote safe use of the internet.
