School Reviews

We obviously love this school since we have been here since Gr. 1 and will enter Gr 7 in the fall. The rich and fascinating curriculum is well-rounded and something our child will hold for the rest of his life. He is learning to find his life path and how he is connected to the rest of the world. Our experience has been that the smaller class size has made it easy to come together and foster the feeling of family. In today's busy hustle and bustle world it is truly a blessing to find a place that intentionally slows down so our children can experience an unhurried and less stressful upbringing so they can grow into the world and learn to create a more peaceful and cherished future.
