For parents, decisions about your child’s future take on many forms. When it comes to education, it’s no longer simply a decision about which university or college is ideal. Many parents are a step ahead, considering what kind of high schools are best-suited to their child. The decision extends beyond the classic public vs. private debate. Many larger school boards in Canada offer high schools with specialized programs including Afrocentric, arts focus, athletics, international baccalaureate and STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) focus.
