“During my time in this class, I have learned many topics about chemistry. My teacher was able to teach me all the topics in detail, provided assistance when I needed help, and made the class enjoyable. The evaluations were straightforward and fair. I had an amazing time during this online class and I would strongly recommend other students to take classes at this school.”

Richard Y


“Exemplary core curriculum, extensive arts, project-based learning, small class size, one-on-one tutoring and counseling, all-season field trips, most of their teachers are OCT with greater than five years of commitment, and a proactive leadership program which sends our kids into the global community doing service.”

Great private high school in Toronto. The location is in a good part of town, more North York area than Toronto but it’s right off the highway so it’s not hard to get to. Right near Fairview mall. The staff there is very nice and they were very helpful in answering all of my questions. They offer a lot for their students not only in terms of education but helpful after school activities and off campus trips, like going to Blue Mountain during the winter time. Overall, great choice. Right near the college as well. They also offer good tuition, not like some other schools in Toronto. Would recommend!
