In my opinion, highschool courses in Ontario are not difficult in general as long as students spend enough time on it. However, at Toronto International Academy, a semester is shorter since we have 4 semesters, so a course can go at a very fast pace. The class is 2 and a half hours long so try not to miss one. There is quite a lot of work to take in for a day but the teachers will try to make it as simple as they can. Some science courses are a little content-heavy, but it is necessary if one wants to pursue a bachelor of science in a post-secondary school. I find these courses are an excellent background for courses in university. It will be useful in one way or another in the future because it consists of basic knowledge that everybody should know. English courses are especially helpful for international students because it allows them to practice reading, writing, listening and speaking skills.
As per standard Ontario High School requirements, Toronto International academy offers all academic and applied courses for grades 10-12. In addition, with the large presence of international students, Toronto International Academy offers versatile ESL courses that international students can take. Universities are currently extremely competitive and Toronto International Academy ensures that the environment that students work in is equally competitive and challenging. This helps students understand and hone some skills that they will need to face difficulties when they enter university education. The competitive academic environment also prepares students for the large quantity of workload that will be introduced during the post-secondary years. Students looking to enroll in Toronto International Academy should be prepared to work extremely hard and be ready to change their working habits for the better.
