Reviews of Upper Canada College

Topic: School Location

Will Huang - Student   (Jan 23, 2018)

Upper Canada College is situated on Lonsdale Road and is surrounded by busy Avenue road as well, but the grounds are a private and quiet space. The college has an entire hedge which surrounds the perimeter of the school and within are fields, tennis courts, ice rinks and classrooms that I feel lucky and privileged to share. There are multiple bus stops around UCC which makes it convenient for students to come to school using public transit but there are multiple areas for the majority of boys who are dropped off by car. Students in the older grades such as 11 and 12 only go off campus for other sources of food a short walk away from the campus. I think a great thing about UCC is that we are extremely close to BSS. BSS is an all girls private school and I think its important to be close to a school like that because we do not have much interaction with girls during the school day as we are an all boys school. Since UCC and BSS are at a short distance it makes it easy for the two schools to collaborate in theatre productions.

The school location is central within the city. The school is easily accessible by car, and public transport. The school facilities and grounds are incredible and provide ample space for learning as well as outdoor play. As the boys get older, they venture beyond the school grounds to the local neighbourhood spots.

The school located in central Toronto on 35 acres of green space, UCC offers modern learning spaces, state of the art facilities and countless athletic and co-curricular activities. Students can swim and skate in school, they have sports in bubbles (inflated indoor playground). UCC's Noval Outdoor School, a 430-acre facility located 40 minutes north of Toronto, offers opportunities to learn about nature and the environment. Students go to Noval three times a year, Grade 6 students stay their for one week of team building and communication activities. Students also have trips to other schools for sports, and to Quebec for language (French) study, to watch plays, and to visit charities.
