Compassionate, caring teachers
I can’t say enough positive things about the school and its teachers. They really care about the kids and really understand children with LDs and learning differences. They are compassionate, caring teachers who really go the extra mile for their students and are willing to work with parents to get our children on track so they can succeed both academically and socially. It’s not just a job to them, it’s a passion. Every school should share the same philosophy. It’s about the kids and helping them succeed in life!
Motivation to succeed
My daughter started in Grade 9 this year, and it is the first time in six years that she loves going to school. Her self-esteem and self-confidence has grown immensely. For the first time in her school life, she can tell me what she is studying in each class. Previously she was never given any homework or assignments, now she willingly sits and does any work needed, including wanting to study for upcoming tests. Her motivation to succeed has skyrocketed.
The best decision
The Academy has exceeded our expectations. The staff’s genuine concern for each child is obvious and greatly appreciated. The opportunities to be involved in community projects, exchanges, and extracurricular activities further enhance the experience. It was the best decision that we could have made for our daughter’s high school.
Performing at a much higher level
Our son was first diagnosed with ADHD and an LD in primary school. We were told he was very bright, but would require some supports to help him succeed at school. With support he fared reasonably well until high school. Even with an IEP, and additional support at home and school, his marks began to drop immediately. By his third year he was failing and not attending classes. We enrolled our son in the Academy the following year. The change we saw was almost immediate. Our son wants to attend classes at the Academy and is performing at a much higher level than his previous school. We also noticed a profound change in his mood. Since enrolling at the Academy his happiness and self-confidence have improved greatly. I would highly recommend the Academy to any parent whose child needs a truly supportive learning environment.
