Thanks to St. John’s Academy, I was able to successfully enter the University of my choice. All teachers and office staff were extremely helpful whenever I needed help. I found the teachers to be very responsible and professional while the office staff were always nice and helpful to me.
I really want to say thanks to St. John’s Academy and the teachers who offered me lots of help. The teachers helped me learn lots of things in different areas. Besides, the other school support staff gave me lots of help as well. I felt quite comfortable in this school.
I’ve met some professional teachers here who are patient, responsible and engaging. School staff members are enthusiastic. Most relationships that exist here between students and educators are relaxed and friendly. The overall atmosphere of Saint John’s Academy is harmonious.
St. John’s Academy is a place that I will never forget. It is not only a school that taught me knowledge, but it was also a place that gave me a great experience of almost everything. I always believe social experiences are more important than the knowledge, and this is what I got from St. John’s Academy.
My name is Ke Chen, and I will be graduating from University of Waterloo this year. Looking back to my high school life in Vancouver, I remember I spent some unforgettable years at St. John’s Academy. St. John’s Academy provides students with excellent environment. Not only do the students study the high school subjects but also they are able to make a lot of friends and participate in different after-school activities. I am grateful to St. John’s Academy for providing me the opportunity to get into my ideal university.
St. John’s Academy provided me with the best learning environment. All Advisors and teachers treated us as not only students, but also as true friends. Under their guidance, I was able to pursue the university and career of my dreams much easier. The school also provided students with lots of opportunities to participate in different activities such as volunteer work, field trips, and joining school festival celebrations. After gaining these real-life experiences, I really learned a lot of academic knowledge, and also about myself. Most of my best memories during my high school life are closely related to St. John’s Academy.
Even though I had only spent one year at St. John’s Academy, I will never forget how memorable it was being there. Teachers and staffs at St. John’s Academy were not just professionals, they were all very friendly towards the students. The teachers and staffs all cared about teaching and helping students to achieve better grades. The school was not only focused on academics, but also on extracurricular activities such as skiing, Halloween Party, Chinese New Year Party, which was all organized by the faculty themselves. With the help of St. John’s Academy, I received many offers from different universities such as University of British Columbia, University of Waterloo and Western University. I couldn’t be more appreciative to St. John’s Academy for all the great opportunities. It was a great honor to write this testimonial for St. John’s Academy.
I joined the summer camp program. I felt very safe, but the most important thing was that my English got improved, well prepared to receive an A-level grade. I also got to know so many different cultures. The funniest thing was that I was well-known after a few days because I was from Europe. I also loved the sightseeing tours in the afternoon. Not only because everybody was so friendly and kind, but also because they all cared for us. And that’s what I really liked about St. John’s Academy. It was a really great time, thank you all!
St. John’s Academy has been an essential part of helping me to prepare for university in Canada. Being immersed in English yet still being encouraged to nurture my own culture has made me feel accepted. Having passionate and knowledgeable teachers and counselors kept me interested and engaged in my studies. Also being at St. John’s Academy allowed me to meet and connect with many students from all different cultures.
The thing I miss the most at St.John’s Academy are the teachers because they were more than just teachers, they were friendly and earnest. They always helped us to understand and give us more knowledge. At times, they felt like friends when giving us advice for life, and to help us solve problems. I still remember the time I didn’t get a good mark from an English exam. The teacher told me that it was just the beginning and how I should try hard to succeed. I can tell the teachers were very earnest as they would spend their own time to stay after school to help us by answering our questions about the lessons. During the class, I didn’t feel uncomfortable because the teachers always brought humorous, exciting stories to our lessons and made us laugh so hard. I found my classmates so friendly, and they were always good to work with for any group work, as we helped each other to improve our own skills. The best thing in St.John’s Academy was that there was no discrimination and how everyone treated each other like a big family.
St. John’s Academy had a huge impact on me. The time I spent at the school was unforgettable. My first English teacher was Mr. Isaak. He was always patient to answer any questions that we had. He also taught us to perform a lot of dialogues from Romeo and Juliet. It was so fun. Mr. Catalano was my favorite music teacher. He was super nice from his heart. We always jammed and expressed our different opinions about music. I still remember the song I wrote, “Peaceful.” It was such a simple, and spontaneous song, but I really enjoyed it. Mr. Sheldon also taught me a lot of informative facts in Physics and Chemistry class. I really liked him. Last but not least, Ms. Leong was always energetic in class and made the class so interesting. She was always helpful for every question we had, and gave us a wonderful time.
Although I have only spent one year at St. John’s Academy, I can say it was the most enjoyable, fascinating year of my life. The quality of education, as well as the welcoming faculty, made my experience at the school memorable. The enthusiasm and passion the teachers expressed had a huge impact on me, and motivated me to my path to pursue my education. Because most of the students were from other countries around the world, the multicultural environment helped me to experience various cultures and languages. The office staff were always hospitable, supportive and helpful. There were many leadership opportunities such as the Student Council and other interesting clubs. I was very grateful when I received offers from all the universities I applied to, and knew it was all thanks to the necessary academic foundation from St John’s Academy where I found my way to build my career.
Although I was once filled with excitement at the thought of graduating, now I feel a hint of sadness. Having to leave the cozy environment of friends and embarking on the journey to adulthood is not an easy thing! These days I feel like the school reveals a heartfelt epiphany. It is not enough for myself to succeed alone, as it will not bring true happiness. Others should succeed with me.
The time in was short yet fabulous. In this period of time, I made lots of friends. More importantly, I received offers from my desired universities. Life in St. John’s Academy is unforgettable.
