Everyone here is so friendly and kind...

Hi everybody. My name is Kim, I am 16 years old, and I am an international student from Vietnam.
This is my first time studying and living in Canada, everything is completely strange to me, I am not fluent in English, so at first, I was afraid to go to school. The school here is completely different from the school in Vietnam, the culture is very different.
In the first days of studying here, I didn’t know what to do at all. What people said, I couldn’t fully understand what they meant. But fortunately, everyone here is very friendly, and kind. Teachers and friends are all dedicated to helping me in my studies. At school, I am now learning a lot and experiencing many things and I am learning about myself. My English and academic performance have also improved a lot since I first started.


OUR VISION: Creating opportunities for learning, and opportunities for life.
