Burlington, ON | Grades PS - 8 | Shortlist
We have two children (twins) who have attended Fern Hill School – both absolutely loved their 9 years at the school (currently 9th), but for slightly different reasons. Our daughter is hearing impaired, thus requires minor accommodations of which the teachers exceeded our expectations. Both our children absolutely love their teachers, followed by their social circle of friends. The small intimate classes gave the children an opportunity to develop deep relationships with both students and their teachers. Using the opportunity for deeper relationships, the teachers have been able to better engage our children as they intimately know their strengths, weaknesses, likes, and dislikes – using examples and language that resonates with each child. Having two children in the same class we have first-hand experience of how the teachers adapt to the uniqueness, needs and aspirations of each child.
