The academic programming and facilities are excellent. After graduating Bishop Strachan School I felt prepared for studying independently at university, business school and law school. Being put under some pressure in high school to achieve academically, while still living at home with a strong support system, helped me to thrive when I was no longer living at home. If I hadn't been prepared by Bishop Strachan, I do not know if I would have had such a positive experience with my studies after high school. There was a subsection of my class that was competitive however overall the students were quite collegial. I think it was a good balance overall and not a negative. The atmosphere amongst the student body is different amongst different cohorts and I think I had a strong year.
