What a positive impact Turnbull School has had on our daughter's life, and thereby ours! We are from Denmark, on a one year sabbatical leave. We chose Ottawa to be our place for expanding our horizon.
We liked the fact that the school communicates frequently, and well, with parents. We were very happy that all students have daily physical education, something our daughter didn’t have before. We also liked the fact that there was a dress code, but not a uniform. To us, it signalled a modern yet professional atmosphere at the school.
We have really enjoyed the "caring for others" atmosphere, combined with the high academic standards. We are amazed how the atmosphere of caring is carried out in every corner of the school.
After just half a year at Turnbull, we have a daughter who now performs on stage, speaks in class, is much more open, has much more self-confidence and loves to go to school! We, as parents, ask ourselves, how can that be? We think the key is the "caring for others" environment in every little corner of the school.
What Turnbull has given our daughter socially and academically is a lifelong positive experience.
