Toronto International is a great school, everybody is very friendly and I could feel that in the atmosphere from the first time arrived. TIA is not a big school, it is a small, cozy family that every student, staff, and teacher knows each other. Small student size is its advantage because teachers and counselors can pay special care to the students and they do remember each and everybody. The school is also newly renovated, they repainted the hall and more spaces are devoted to common areas. They also have a computer room, which can be accessed easily. I spent most of my time there when I didn't have class, it very quiet and the computers work really well. One thing new students should know before arriving is to prepare for entrance tests well in advance. These tests, usually consist of Math and English to determine your level and if you do well in the tests, it will save you a lot of time from studying what you already knew.
