The student body is on the smaller size, but has already grown a fair amount in the last year. The boys genuinely look happy, and respect does permeate the atmosphere. When I walk in the door, the boys greet me politely, and will look for my son and tell him I'm there. I would say that the general atmosphere is a feeling of positive energy mixed with humour and a can do spirit. It would seem that the students are chosen if they have something to add which is a positive to the school. As mentioned earlier, I met the boys hiking on a trail in Banff, and most didn't recognize me, but greeted me enthusiastically, asked if they could pet my dog, and offered to get out of the way on narrow sections. I think that encounter embodied what this school hopes to achieve with our boys.
