Guiding Light places high importance on academics. The school consistently does very well in the provincial assessment (EQAO). Both of my older children learned to read very proficiently in Senior Kindergarten, and have continued to progress very consistently through the early grades. The school fosters a good academic culture and every student is expected to do well. Thus, the teachers puts forward a lot of effort in ensuring students learn the curriculum well and even go beyond if the student's pace allows. I believe my children will be adequately prepared for their next steps in high school and beyond. Their time at Guiding Light will lay a good foundation in study habits that will allow them to succeed in school and also life in general.
