We applied from out of town and from the start to the end the process was very smooth and very personal. I appreciated that there was no admission test. Because of where we were located, we did not get to tour the school. Though I highly recommend it. We had an online meeting between our son and his potential main lesson teacher and they asked us to send samples of his work/report cards. Upon arrival back in Canada, they asked to meet our son in person to make sure it was a good fit. For us, the teacher and administration felt it was not a perfect fit and the teacher recommended a different class. A week later he started school. It all worked out perfectly and we couldn't be happier. We feel they really know children and want them to be where they would fit in and best succeed.
