The Giles School

"...where kids feel safe, free to express themselves, allowing their confidence to flourish."

Brenda Lee - Parent   (Jul 14, 2020)

My two kids, now grades 4 and 6, have attended Giles since PK2 and SK, respectively. It is a small school experience, with smaller classes and kids get lots of individual attention. All the students and teachers from across the school grades know each other, so there is a real sense of community. Of course, my son would say that what's missing is a big gym and more gym classes. However, I think what's most important is that the school has developed a very nurturing environment where kids feel sa... View full review

"...while they provide all the support and care a student could need, they also place a great deal of responsibility on the children."

Golnar Elgammal - Parent   (Jun 02, 2020)

My son's experience at the school has been nothing but positive. Due to the size of his classroom, the kids are able to foster close relationships in addition to learning to work with kids that may be very different from themselves. He truly appreciates the amount of one-on-one attention he gets from his teachers and the fact that he knows they care about how he does in his classes. Overall, my son feels as if he is a member of a community within his school and not just another student. He l... View full review

"...with relatively small class sizes, children have many opportunities to engage with their teachers and receive extra support should they need it."

Lauren Dade - Parent   (May 21, 2020)

My two children have attended from Kindergarten through to Grades 6 and Grade 8 (final grade offered at Giles). When I asked them what they thought about their experience at The Giles School, they said: "we love the atmosphere, we love that the teachers love and care about you, and that they make sure you are learning". The atmosphere is welcoming, loving, thoughtful, not judgemental, and no one is afraid to ask questions or engage with the teachers. When asking them about their earliest memorie... View full review

"She enjoys going to school, seeing the teachers the best."

A Cheung - Parent   (May 21, 2020)

As a new explorer to Canada, our child has gained her first school experience in the Giles School. While the two official languages in Canada are English and French, we'd like to take this opportunity to learn both, which is the first attraction at the Giles School. Without any foundation in French, though, the teaching team was welcoming. They explained us the details and our daughter in a pleasant way. Our child, immediately, wanted to attend this school. French is the teaching language for Gr... View full review

"The teachers and administrators are exceptional. They are always available to the students and their parents."

Lianne Assal - Parent   (May 21, 2020)

I have three children attending The Giles School and I couldn’t be happier about our experience. The Giles School offers children a unique opportunity to challenge themselves in a loving and supportive environment. The teachers and administrators are exceptional. They are always available to the students and their parents. I am always amazed at the things my children are learning at school. The most unique aspect of their education is the opportunity to learn a third language (Mandarin). The c... View full review

"As the students are encouraged to try new things, they often operate 2 years above their grade level..."

Nadia King - Parent   (Sep 12, 2019)

Our children have learned the joys of trying something new without fear of failure. From the time they were in the Pre-K program, they would perform on stage with their classmates, learn a new language or skill. This is still prevalent in their personalities to this day. Our children have also made lifelong friends at The Giles School. One of the key pillars of the school is Love, which is apparent through interactions with any faculty or staff member at the school and which is bestowed u... View full review
