Brampton, ON | Grades JK - 8 | Shortlist
My son loves going to school, he enjoys and feels comfortable and at home at Maranatha Christian Academy mostly because of the small class sizes. He has been home-schooling for the past 5 years and so being back in a school probably would have been very intimidating for him, but at Maranatha, the classes are small, so he is given the adequate amount of attention from his teacher. As there are not too many children in the class he is free to be himself. The teachers and staff are very accommodating, understanding. As a result of this, the children are friendly and easy-going. These have all gone a very long way in making it a smoother transition for my son back into the school system.
The overall environment of the school is a very positive one. The kids are engaged and are provided with meaningful, personal experiences. The children form lasting relationships and with the smaller classroom sizes, the kids are able to form those relationships with the teachers as well. The school does a good job at making sure the children get the same experiences as children in other bigger schools. The academic subjects covered vary from english to animal science and each child works at their own pace for each. Having each child work at their own pace, allows them to be comfortable in their abilities and gives them the freedom to excel in any particular subject at any time. Job well done - thanks.
