Toronto, ON | Grades 7 - 12 | Shortlist
It is hard for me to talk about my experience within the application process because I don’t recall a lot from it. My dad went to the school in the eighties and because he didn’t feel my brother reaching his fullest potential at his previous school, he called the principal and asked if there was a possibility for my brother to attend. The principal remembered exactly who my dad was and was so excited at the thought of his kid attending the school as well. My brother went to the school a year before me and absolutely loved it. He convinced me to come for a tour and meet all his teachers and friends. During my tour I met many of the teachers and sat down and talked with the principal. I knew then and there that this was where I wanted to spend the rest of my secondary education.
The admission process was different for me, because when I went to the school it was for my brother to apply. That is when the principal, Wayne, liked my brother and I, and asked if I would be interested in joining the school. When I had the interview it was very relaxing and all I had to do was be myself. The best advice I could give would be, just be yourself and stay relaxed. When I was first introduced to the school and to principal Wayne, he made my family and I feel super comfortable. After the interview we wrote an admissions test that gave the school an understanding of what level I am at with Math and English. Overall the best advise I could give would be to stay calm and relaxed during the whole process and you'll be fine.
