I don't know if there's an archetype, but I do know that I prefer that. Everybody was an individual and that was very much encouraged. People had different backgrounds, education, religious upbringings, grew up in different areas of the city and very much resembled Toronto's melting pot. People were nice to one another. They were accepting of different cultures. School assemblies teaching us about Diwali, Ramadan, Yom Kippur and Easter, you name it, we embraced it. This was the most incredible thing that I took from the school, coming from a secular Jewish school before attending York. Some people's families had less money, but subjectively and this is perhaps me crossing the line with my own opinions, but nobody was made to feel lesser or small as a result, which is in contrast to some of the all boys and girls schools that I have heard from friends that attended. Everyone was accepted.
