At Yorkville High School, we must provide help and care for the students new to Canada. We understand that it is challenging to study complex subjects using the language you have not mastered yet, for we have been through the same road ourselves. That is why all of our courses will have a particular emphasis on ESL education and differentiated instructions.
It is our goal to see you become successful, but not just academically. Our goal does not stop at assisting you to receive offers from universities, and it is to help prepare you for what is to come after you go to universities. However, being accepted by an excellent Canadian university is already not an easy task. That is why we must implore the parents' help and, most importantly, your initiative and passion for learning. Because the goal of education isn't just getting into a university, it is about applying the skills and knowledge you learn from every single class to your future endeavors.
