Not very many high school students. So they cannot have the joy of being in crowded classes but on the other hand they get very private education because of this. My daughter enjoyed the school environment and the size of the school, which allowed kids to feel like it’s their home. Having friends from every country in the world, allowed her to feel like truly like a citizen of the world and she already has a great network around the world. In the school environment kids are exposed to different world views and culture, which allows them to develop skills of empathy. Teachers are very dedicated. Not to mention the strength of language skills. It is the only school in Calgary where kids can learn french as a native language not only like a second language.
I have to say I love the size of the school. It is of a smaller size but i love the class sizes and how easy it is to get to know the students, even the ones that are not in your child's class. Even the parents. The feel of the school is one of the reasons we decided to send our children. You could feel the energy during the initial walk-through; how positive and cultural it was. Everybody's spirit seemed fairly relaxed and we got the sense that it was a nice learning environment. The general atmosphere of the student body seems compassionate. Even with the school being small the older kids look out for the younger kids, and the younger ones look to learn from the older kids. Obviously there is always the odd bullying but for the most part everybody seems to get along and include one in other in many different activities.
