I came to the Dragon Academy when I was 10 years old and noticeably one of the youngest students. School was finally bearable. The experience is like no other. This school developed a revolutionary learning environment in which students have academic liberty and presumed competent. The school is a tight-knit community and everyone knows each other. Students often talk about the content with enthusiasm and constantly try to better their academic standards. Students also often challenge each other's opinions with the purpose of teaching and developing debate skills. I strongly encourage anyone to attend school at the Dragon Academy if they have potential but need to find their voice.
Classes often contain open discussions. Teachers introduce students to new subjects with passion. Teachers are very readily available to help students achieve their desired grade. The communication between teachers and students is great and students do not sink end up being but a transparent member of a large crowd.
The school leaders are very capable for such a small school. The Dragon Academy receives new teachers quite often. Each teacher brings something interesting to contribute to the school. Although the school has made some large changes in the past years, the passion for learning has not changed.
The work in often thought provoking and gives us a chance to enhance our critical thinking abilities.
There are a variety of extracurricular activities . It would be better if there were more science based extracurricular activities.
The students who would do best at the school are the ones that are creative and have critical thinking skills. The school is a small and close-knit community.
There are no desks in classrooms. Students gather around a table to promote an open discussion. The school recently received a donation of several smart-boards and is constantly upgrading its standards.
One will not make a lot of friends at the Dragon, as it is a small school. However, the friends one makes generally are a lot closer.
The school is located near the Royal Ontario Museum, the University of Toronto, many restaurants, convenience stores, and coffee shops.
During my visit, I was completely unaware of the fact that the principal of the school was assessing me. I later found out that I was accepted into the school. I was shocked as I was very shy at the time and was very quiet during my visit.
