English Teaching Qualification Certificate) teacher to teach ESL in a small class setting. The ESL class is up to 80 minutes per day. Adequate

English tutoring paves the way for rapid adaptation to the OSSD curriculum; the school also arranges a three-day camp trip at the beginning

of each academic year to help international students quickly integrate into the community.


Excellent Graduate Achievements: 75% of the graduates are Ontario Scholars (scored average 80% and above for 6 courses of Grade 12),

and most of the graduates are admitted to the universities of their first choice, including some top Canadian universities such as the University

of Toronto and the University of Waterloo, with entrance scholarship.


Ideal Teacher to Student Ratio: the teacher to student ratio here is 1:10; in some high-enrollment courses of Grade 11 and 12, the ratio is

1:6. The school sticks to a small class setting to ensure that every student is well cared for and has access to teacher’s help whenever they 

need.
