The school has invested in interactive “smartboards” for all classes. In addition, all teachers have been professionally trained in the use of these “smartboards.”
Due to the realities of high demand, it is unfortunately not possible to enroll every child that applies to the school. Therefore, we have established a waiting list policy in order to offer children an opportunity to join the school if a spot becomes available.
The waiting list takes into account both the amount of space available, and the sex of the child, in order to secure an even proportion of male and female students. You are still encouraged to apply and join the waiting list, as admission trends and availability are constantly changing.
