Canadian Education System
The ministry of education has developed a strong curriculum and policies and protocols that schools must follow. It offers students an open, friendly environment where students are encouraged to discuss questions or concerns with their teachers. The curriculum has been established to allow students the flexibility in their course selection to study subjects that interest them and set themselves up for the greatest success in their future. Built into students learning, it also inspires students to use critical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, and communication skills.
Studying in Canada students will benefit from a world-class education, Canadian college and university diplomas are recognized all over the world and Canada is consistently ranked among the one of the top education systems in the world.
The Ontario Secondary School diploma is recognized by Universities and Colleges globally. By obtaining and OSSD students can apply to Canadian Universities and Colleges as local students, which makes students have a greater chance of being accepted into the University of their choice.
For students interested in pursuing their studies at an English-speaking University, taking secondary school courses in English prior to starting University sets them up for greater success during their first year.

They will also be put into a class with students from other countries where they are able to learn from their experiences as well as broaden their cultural and social interactions.
The Canadian school program has been a valuable experience for me and has provided me with the opportunity to practically understand and try education abroad. Although the first academic year was a challenge for me, as the program does indeed differ from my school, I acquired many useful and new skills. This course taught me how to formulate thoughts in a structured way, analyze my own work and the behavior of others, such as characters from literary works, and apply teacher feedback to my work.
