Markham, ON | Grades PS - 12 | Shortlist
We came to PCA on the recommendation of good church friends. It has been the best schooling decision we have made for our 3 kids, and we recommend PCA wholeheartedly. Our children are not just learning but thriving. Our children unanimously say that the one thing they appreciate most about PCA is their teachers who are kind, caring, funny, and engaging. Teachers are always available to help without judgment, and they always find very creative and FUN ways to teach the material and engage the kids. We have experienced ELC right up until Middle School (at the time this review is written). In all the years my eldest has been at PCA, she has fostered deep friendships and relationships with her classmates and teachers. Her SK teacher still greets her with a warm smile and remembers her name. My daughter feels like her teachers are not just figures of authority, but people she looks up to, and consider as friends. Alumni parents have accounted to me the ways their childrens' teachers have purposefully set aside time outside of school to ask how they are doing and have walked alongside them during extremely difficult family situations, and even just through tough teenage times - this is outside of their already very busy day. My children feel loved at PCA.
