Teachers are always available for extra help in other subjects when needed. International students bond together and a special room is provided in the school to call their own and socialize. Help with post-secondary applications and preparation for English tests such as IELTS is available if needed.
International Week is celebrated in November with a chance for students to showcase their countries at a food fair and in cultural presentations in the K-6 classrooms.
