2017 | | 39 O N TA R I O Olivet School 279 Burnhamthorpe Rd., Etobicoke, ON M9B 1Z6 Founded in 1893, Olivet School is a private elementary school focused on creating a warm, caring environment for our students through small class sizes and integrating Christian values and character development into all that we do here at the school. Our educational philosophy is seen in the way we teach: teacher to student ratios that allow for child-centered learning, enriched academics that extend beyond basic curriculum, and increased experiential learning opportunities outside school walls. Our graduates are recognized for their qualities of integrity, thoughtfulness, respect and diligence. Through generous donations from our successful alumni, our tuition remains affordable for those parents wishing to enrol their child at Olivet School. If personalized attention, a safe and supportive learning environment and the development of strong character are priorities for your child's education, you are likely to fi nd a home here. It's these qualities in particular that continue to attract lifetime teachers, loyal alumni and a student population to Olivet School.
