Calgary, AB | Grades PS - 12 | Shortlist
My daughter enjoyed the school environment and the size of the school allowed kids to feel like it’s their home. She has always felt like she was academically ahead of her age group compared to different schools. Having friends from every country in the world, allowed her to feel like a citizen of the world and she already has a great network around the world. In the school environment, kids are exposed to different world views and culture, which allows them to develop skills of empathy. Teachers are very dedicated. Not to mention the strength of language skills. It is the only school in Calgary where kids can learn French like a native language- not only as a second language. The school also provides the luxury of a safe roof, whichever country they might need to go to. Parents can choose the luxury and comfort of having their children in the same school from maternal and kindergarten- all the way to high school graduation.
I have to say that the class sizes really are what make our children feel comfortable, less kids make it calmer and not as chaotic. Also the teachers we had this past year are wonderful. We have seen our children have so much more confidence in their work. The positive energy and encouragement is so helpful. Our kids love the playground, the outdoor space, the climbing wall, the school programs. The friends they have are multi-cultural or from a different country. There is nothing that my kids have said they dislike and I feel the same way. Our experience at LLP has been wonderful and nothing has been disappointing for our family. We plan on sending our younger children there as well and can't wait to try the Maternelle Program for 3 & 4 year olds.
