Calgary, AB | Grades K - 10 | Shortlist
My son absolutely loves this school, and this is a kid who was miserable in a public school where he was seen as a bit different, and required more attention from his teacher than the other kids. I think that the quality of teaching allowed him to show what he is capable of achieving, his joy for being at school allows him to free up energy to devote to learning. He is thriving academically, and because of the low student to teacher ratio, his teachers understand how to get him quickly back on track, something that didn't happen at his previous school. I don't want to give the impression that this is a school for someone with a significant learning disorder, it doesn't have the supports in place. In our case, most of the issues stemmed from anxiety surrounding learning in a second language. For my son, this has been a game changer, and I'm in awe of his new found confidence. He genuinely likes all of his teachers, and his classmates.
