Calgary, AB | Grades PS - 12 | Shortlist
Right from the beginning of our first experience with CFIS, we have taken notice of the welcoming and positive atmosphere of the the students. Our children were sold on CFIS immediately following their introductory visit, and the friendliness of the students was one of the noticeable factors. Although grade school children will certainly experience social conflict and struggle, the way the school manages interactions fosters an approach of respect and a seek to understand mindset. We have no concerns of bullying or shaming, and feel that CFIS takes a very proactive and considered approach to this behaviour, typical of grade school students. Everyone seems to be happy to be at the school, and they seem to demonstrate respect and consideration. This cannot be underestimated, and is instrumental to inclusiveness for all children at the school.
