The work is a little bit hard sometimes, but usually just right. As I explained in Teaching part, everything I learned is so useful to my future. I have to talk about our business class as an excellent example here. Our school is cooperating with students from George Brown College, they come here to teach us how to budget, how to pay taxes in the future, how to get grant from the government, how to open our own companies etc. Helpful, useful, interesting!
They offer different academic courses such as challenge and change in society or intro to anthropology, psychology and sociology. These courses makes student understand people and societies from various aspects. Although Keystone is small, they offer all the main courses and also offer whatever people are interested as long as students have the pre-requisite courses. I enjoyed the ENG4U the most, it was tough but it helped me to improve my literature and language skills. My other favourite subject was gym, we did the leadership course where we were leading the younger grades by both preparing the class and instructing the class, teaching them how to do different sports while our teacher was supervising us. The gym teacher provided us with the structure of the activities we had to teach accordingly. I enjoyed that and also got to improve my leadership skills.
