Kim from Jamaica

“At the tender age of fourteen, my parents made the most courageous and emotional decision to allow me to study abroad. Canada boasts one of the highest world rankings in regards to safety and education. With the support of close family members and friends in Canada, we began to search for a suitable environment considerate of a young international student. Overall, J. Addison School exhibited the greatest opportunity to harbour growth and learning in a caring and centralized environment. J. Addison’s teachers readily became my nurturers and pillars of support. The staff members were passionate and every meticulous decision they made contributed a role in better developing my future, both in personality and educational advancement. Additionally, small classroom settings were optimal in facilitating individualized learning between teachers and students while also creating a close-knit bond through student interactions. My most memorable moments include being a part of Student Council as a junior representative, co-writing and pursuing the female lead role in the school’s first crafted play, reminiscing the sweet memories in creating the school yearbook and best of all, actively involving myself in meaningful community volunteer work. I truly appreciate how easily the staff engaged us in active participation wherever opportunities arose.

During my J. Addison experience, I learnt to venture out of my comfort zone and initiate steps towards self-development, community-development and social-development with my peers. The wonderful people I met at J. Addison School have genuinely become my brothers and sisters in this journey of studying and exploring in Canada.

Ella from China

“As an immigrant from China, J. Addison had given me the emotional and educational supports; it felt like I was living at home. Even though J. Addison School is a small private school, its small size allowed me to receive full attention and guidance from the teachers. My English was not very good when I came to this school, but the teachers had helped me improve my English speaking and writing skills tremendously.

J. Addison School had successfully prepared and guided me to my dream school. After I finished my High School Education, I went to the University of Toronto, I double majored in Sociology and Media Studies. During my undergraduate years, I maintained a close connection with a few teachers at J. Addison School, they provided me with guidance even during my undergraduate years. Currently, I have received several offers from various Graduate Schools in Canada, and I will continue to pursue my dream as a teacher.”

Daniel from Vietnam

“Moving to J. Addison School from a public high school was one of the best decisions that I have made in my education career so far. The school provided me with the necessary tools that really prepared me for university and which allowed me to fly while being in Wilfrid Laurier. The people that I’ve met at J. Addison School were incredible, they were all very talented individuals who had great minds, and most of all, they pushed me to work harder and harder every single day in order to achieve my goals of getting into a top business school in the country. I am very glad that I have picked J. Addison over other schools in the area, and if I had to make that decision again, without a doubt I would pick J. Addison School in a heartbeat. It was because of J. Addison School, I was able to pick the right school for myself and really become confident about my future. Thank you so much for everything that you have done for me, I will not forget the school when I grow up.”
