Why Your Child May Benefit from Going to a Private School in Lawrence Park

Private Schools in Lawrence Park Have Much to Offer


Choosing a private school can be difficult, as Toronto boasts some of the best educational institutions in North America! But deciding whether or not to send your child to private school is less difficult. Virtually every child can benefit from time spent at a good private school, and both scholarships and tuition assistance is available at most of these institutions. If you live in the Lawrence Park area, investigate private schools in midtown. Admissions directors are always happy to give you and your son or daughter a tour of their facilities, and to answer any questions you may have.


Who Benefits?


If your child is reflected in any of the descriptions below, he or she may be a perfect candidate for a Toronto private or prep school:

  • Children who are working below their potential. The higher expectations at a good private school, along with the example of others working hard and achieving academically, can provide a "wake-up call” to children who have never experienced a culture that prizes academic achievement.
  • Children who are struggling academically. If your child is having difficulty, the smaller class sizes, structure, and resources of a private school can help to bring him or her up to grade level. 
  • Children who are excelling academically. Excellent students may be eligible for scholarships at some schools. These children often need more challenges than the public system can provide. They may particularly benefit from a prep school, which offers all the tools necessary to start them out on a stellar university career.
  • Children who struggle socially. The structure of a private school provides children with greater opportunities to socialize while participating in a constructive activity. As well, good schools demand that students show respect for one another, helping to ensure that each student's contribution is valued.
  • Children who are less assertive. Children who are shy, or who are reluctant to speak up in class can gain new confidence in a private school atmosphere. Better schools encourage children to take risks, and this can lead to newfound competence and self-esteem. Smaller class sizes make participation in discussions easier and more comfortable.
  • Children who are natural leaders. Often leadership skills are overlooked in the public system. In a private school, the talent of natural leaders becomes evident, and can be channelled easily into school activities.
  • Athletic children. The athletic programs at superior private schools allow children far more opportunities for participation than public schools. Gifted athletes will have access to premium facilities, top-notch coaching, and a wide variety of sports.



Good private schools are renowned for having high academic standards. But good schools also try to instill values that will have lifelong benefits for their students. In addition, most promote finding a balance in life that includes academics, athletics, and extracurricular activities. 


Private schools place an emphasis on building character by instilling values such as: respect for self and others, integrity in personal interactions, cooperation, service to the community, and more. Many private schools have a strict code of conduct that governs the behaviour of its students.
