We continue to move forward. But.
Are we going in the right direction?
I firmly believe that we need a new school. A competitive entity to private school offerings, and along the lines of a Royal West or Vincent Massey.
When a family is looking for what school their child is going to go to, they are looking at a *school* – the whole package. The culture of the school. The behavioral aspects. The academics of it, obviously, but I would almost say that the academics of it are “expected”.
Should we be looking at a PPP to develop one? Should we be looking to partner privately? Should we consider partnering with a French schoolboard and make a hybrid, high-achievers bilingual school?
I wish we could spend the time and focus on these questions.
I don’t want to lose the momentum we have built for this either. But at the same time, if we’re going to do it, we really need to do it right.
