The students at Ontario Academy of Technology are happy people, because they like to be with each other. They are close friends and they know each other very well because it is a small school and grants them this. They often visit universities together, they go to technology factories and to science centres. If there is a birthday, the student will have his birthday cake and a party that brings happiness to everyone and reinforce the sense of community. We can see this through the Instagram photos and stories and we become happy like them. Every time there is a university acceptance, everybody vibrates with the success of each other. And this motivates the students to always be present at school to accompany academic life and show his own achievements to his friends.

All the students are really great. The majority of them are from Persia so they are all very friendly and respectful. Other students periodically come from places like Japan and Brazil. The community is very small so everyone in the school feels like family in no time. Without a doubt they have become some of my favorite people ever. The students who do best at the school are the ones who come into class everyday with a smile on their face (made much easier by the positive environment) and are willing to work hard and make sure everyone is having a good time. It is a lot of fun learning about foreign cultures and languages. Many student are happy to indulge in talking about home, making break time feel like another class in foreign studies.

Please see my answer for the preceding question. Both my sons were taking private or semi-private credit courses. They had almost no interaction with fellow students. I would point out that in semi-private learning the learning style and personality of the fellow student is clearly a factor in determining the nature of the learning experience. A successful shared (semi-private) credit course will match students who are not just at the same grade level, but who share a similar work ethic and whose learning styles are compatible. It may be preferable to opt for a private lesson format rather than compromise in this regard. I assume that any family that is considering a small, tightly focused school like OAT is not looking for a typical school experience.
