Calgary, AB | Grades PS - 12 | Shortlist
We have been blown away by the care and attention demonstrated by the teaching staff at CFIS. The format of specialist teaching is recognized as an excellent way to ensure each subject is taught to the highest level possible. Our daughter has teachers for all of the following: Homeroom, French, Art, Phys ed, and Music. This allows for teachers that are passionate subject matter experts in their field of choice, and not simply a body to fill a spot and teach a scripted curriculum. Our daughter had some struggles early on in her first year of grade 4, and the support from her teacher was fantastic. Specifically, timely and consistent communication and expectation setting helped us with piece of mind that the teacher was actually committed and engaged in our daughters success. She ended up the year exceeding expectations, and likely from the support recieved.
