Toronto, ON | Grades PS - 12 | Shortlist
I have been a student at Keystone International Schools for the past four years. Being at an international school is truly a remarkable experience, where I got to meet people from different cultures and backgrounds. I have come to form familial bonds with peers who come from all over the world, regardless of our differences. The experiences I’ve had at Keystone have all shaped who I am today, and I can’t imagine myself anywhere else. I am really grateful for all of my experiences at Keystone, as well as the life-long friends that I made. Being a senior, I have bittersweet feelings about leaving this community behind, yet, I know that the ideals and values of Keystone will stay with me wherever I go.
My daughter completed Grades 10, 11 and 12 at Keystone School. What she needed was a happy school environment and Keystone provided just that. She loved going to school every day, and that's exactly what's most important to us. Everyone in the school knows each other and teachers can spend one-on-one time with students. My daughter improved her academic skills very much and also enjoyed many extracurricular activities during her time at Keystone. The class size was very small (nine students in her class) and that helped my daughter to get help from her teachers whenever she needs to. They also offered school clubs that students can join according to their interests. Overall, we knew we made the right decision with Keystone since day one and my daughter had an amazing time there.
I've been a student at Keystone International Schools for the past two years. I adore the school and the people who work here. I found it so easy to make new friends when I first came to Keystone International Schools, students and teachers both made me feel so welcome. I am really happy here and enjoy coming to school every day. My teachers are fantastic motivators, and the academic program is excellent. Our time at Keystone International Schools is extraordinary. Students have gained confidence in their academic capacities as a result of small class sizes and tiered instruction. Because it is a small school, there is a smaller student-to-teacher ratio, which gives them more confidence in asking questions, participating in group activities, and having one-on-one time with the teachers.
I really enjoyed being a student at Keystone. Overall I made lifelong memories and really good friends. I am happy that George Brown is a five minute walk, I would like to sometimes come by for a visit. I enjoyed being downtown, all the access to everything but also enjoyed staying in the school during the winter months, because there are so many things to do in the student lounge area. Classes are small and intimate. Teachers are easy to approach and are always looking to help. Even now I am not there, they are always wanting to keep in touch and also offer to help. I am glad I graduated from Keystone International School in Toronto and happy that Mr. D helped me in choosing my pathway.
In Keystone International Schools, we have lovely teachers and interesting classmates. Everyone studies here, meets new friends here and has a lot of fun here. I absolutely fall in love with this school. It's hard to find something that I feel unsatisfied here. Before I arrived here, Mrs. Ivana introduced a lot of about the school in fully details and patient. The learning environment, teachers, students and my education plan are the things I worried about before I came here. The facility is high-quility and everything is new. I'm sure here is enough studying space for all the students, although there are only 10 students here for now. However, there is nothing for me to worry about, I believe my school will have a great amount of students in a short time!
