Key insights from our research

  • You have these high achievers, whether they’re elite athletes or they want to get into top-notch universities with high grades, so they plow through the material with passion. But at the core of their being is doing things differently. It’s the spirit of adventure and risk-taking that bonds us together.
    —From Interview with Royal Crown School Head of School: Michael Burke.
  • What I appreciate most is the individual attention given to each student, thanks to the smaller class sizes. Teachers have been really helpful to my daughter, they were able to present the content of the class in a way that’s easy for her to keep up and to succeed. She is very excited to be able to follow her passions in both academics and in elite basketball.
    —From Interview with Royal Crown School parent: Maria Sarri.
  • I think I was just able to learn so much because I felt that teachers are so much more passionate than what I experienced in public school. They created really exciting classroom environments. And there was definitely a focus on building the right path for yourself in terms of what you want to achieve.
    —From Interview with Royal Crown School alum: Kourosh Sheidaei.

Message from school leadership

Michael Burke, Mr.

Royal Crown School is a very special place. I love seeing our students every day and working to provide them with the best possible experience. Our teachers and staff all believe strongly that every young person has powerful potential and in the right environment, they will thrive. We are all dedicated to creating this energizing environment and unleashing the potential in each student to set them on a path to a successful life.

Here at our school, we take extra care of our students and ensure each and every one is given individual attention and guidance to achieve academic success.  We welcome students from all over the world. Our diversity enriches our community and prepares our students to engage the world.

We are a fairly new school, founded in 2005, and we pride ourselves on being agile and innovative. A few years back we started an elite developmental basketball program which has garnered national attention and already sent several graduates to NCAA division 1 schools in the United States, Canadian National teams and even to the NBA.

We are delighted that you are interested in learning more about Royal Crown School. We invite you to drop by our campus, reach out to our admissions team and attend one of our open houses. We look forward to welcoming you and sharing more about what makes our school extra ordinary and maybe the right fit for your child.
