Harrow, ON | Grades 1 - 8 | Shortlist
I have 2 sons that attend St. Peter's ACHS College School. They both feel challenged by the curriculum and enjoy the interactive learning. My children enjoy being able to work at their own pace and love being active all day. The day starts out with fall in, which sees the boys line up while singing the national anthem, reciting the schools codes and prayers. This allows the boys to start their day on a positive note. They then do homework check and start independent reading in the schools interactive library. The boys are encouraged to read many different genres of books and the library has an endless supply of resources. The boys do the extent of their learning in the morning and early afternoon. The boys enjoy eating meals together in the school's dining room and the afternoon is spent doing any and all physical activities. My boys love that they can expel the energy they pent up from a morning of hard work.
As a parent with a 13-year old who has had a variety of struggles, school was a hard place to be. Wanting to provide the best environment for my son, I began the search for alternative options and was thrilled to learn about the diversity of St. Peter’s ACHS College School. With a strong emphasis on discipline and values, the structured learning environment St. Peter’s has thus provided, has made all the difference as my son prepares for high school. St. Peter's has instilled in him, a sense of self-worth and pride in being accountable to himself as well as the "team". He recognizes his responsibility to his own learning, takes pride in his accomplishments and understands the importance of his contribution to the greater community.
