Fantastic school. Both of my kids have had an amazing time. Incredibly talented and high quality teachers. Excellent, nurturing environment. Great community of caring and diverse parents. My children move between French and English seamlessly and have developed an enriching set of friends. A fantastic school.

Teaching gifted children requires deft handling. These children need intellectual and sensory stimulation. But they also need guidance and careful nurturing so that they grow up handling their special gifts and themselves appropriately.
Strategic planning is a disciplined effort to produce fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide what an organization is, what it does, and why it does it, with a focus on the future.
Getting your child into a competitive school is a tough assignment. Don't let the many challenges overwhelm you. There is a simple solution.
