School Reviews

This is a high-performing school, my son has been going there since K and we are quite happy with the results. The staff and teachers are really dedicated. There is a downside of course, and that is that to get those results, they cut on the recess time and PE. My son had a hard time adapting to this, especially since there`s a lot of homework. You should always try to talk with the teacher to make sure they slow down on the homework and that your child gets time outside (if they haven`t finished their work at school or they misbehave, sometimes they`ll get no recess, which is counter-productive especially at that age).They also give too many treats and candy, especially just before lunch time. Plus lunch break is very short so your child will probably not eat much. So in terms of health they are not the most advanced school you will find. But the atmosphere is nice when they organize events, overall a lot of nice families. Be aware that they are under renovation which means for the moment you cannot see your child`s teacher in the morning anymore.
