Just wondering how it ranks on things like Equality - Multi-Culturalism? freedom of expression and religion?

Primary concern of course, Are girls offered the same opportnities as boys?

Hardly surprising that a private school should, and I stress the word should, do better given the teacher to pupil ratio and the budget, and the parent involvement. However what does concern me is the lack of emphasis on the basics in all of the schools. I want my children to know the 3 Rs and I want them to learn how to behave (I miss the days of the Nun teachers who made sure you knew how to add, spelling always counted and you knew how to be courteous and polite) Ah the good old days when children knew what was expected of them, and when if you failed the grade they actually made you repeat that grade until you learned

As somebody who knows the Abraar school well, I just wanted to let you know that Abraar is truly a premium elementary school that instills in all of its students the values of Canadian citizenship and promotes full gender equality. Girls are encouraged to accomplish just as much if not more than their male counterparts. These kids are not just smart; they are socially responsible.

There is no better elementary school in the city.
