How we see Maple Leaf World Schools - Canada
Maple Leaf was founded in 2016 in order to provide a strong entry for international students into the Canadian educational system with a specific eye to achieving admission to and success at university in North America. The program has been engineered with that goal very firmly in mind, including all the supports necessary for the international student arriving in Canada, ESL courses and assessment, a full menu of AP offering, and travel and university guidance. Maple Leaf is smaller than some of the other international schools in the region, which is a draw for families looking for a more personal approach to curriculum delivery and student life. There are two campuses, both operating within existing tertiary institutions: Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops and Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Richmond, BC. On arrival, students enter an environment that is student centered and populated by peers of a like mind and facing the same challenges, specifically around university preparation. The ideal student is one able to thrive in a challenging, goal-oriented, and diverse academic environment.
