These days, independent schools thrive for excellence. All have fantastic websites, glossy brochures, and staff willingly give you a tour showing how great things are. What differentiated Sunnybrook school from the rest for my wife and me was the happiness we felt in the hallways of school and the students running around, every time we visited the school. Right away, we could see our daughter amongst the students in Sunnybrook school. Our journey started with a typical open house, followed by a school tour. The process was fairly similar to those of the other independent schools we visited. And we visited many. Staff are very professional and friendly. You get a warm feeling that are prepared to hear your unique needs and worries. You don’t get a sense that they are reading from a marketing script with predefined “Q and A”s. When we shortlisted a few independent schools, we went back and had a one on one with the Principal. Meeting with Dr.Davy. was the ultimate tipping point for us to go with Sunnybrook School. She has a vision for the school that is easily understandable. She listened to our particular needs and worries. She responded to all our questions, openly and honestly.
