Class of 2016

My experience at Elpis was an amazing one! Before enrolling in ENG4U, MHF4U, and MCV4U at Elpis, my foundations in mathematics and English were not strong enough. I know I required extra help, and after my friend recommended Elpis, I decided to give them a try. On the first day, I knew I was in good hands. The teachers here are excellent and very helpful, and they actually make class lessons interesting, which is something I never thought about. Coming to Elpis for classes never felt like a chore; rather, I felt glad knowing I was going to learn new things while having a great time. My grades went up, and now I feel confident going to university. I know I have the knowledge to succeed in my program.

My Elpis teachers have guided me tremendously in my courses. I understood math much better than I did in day school. I only took Calculus and Vectors, and I still regret not taking Advanced Functions at Elpis as well, as I would have understood the topics more and achieved higher marks. To any student who thinks that math is hard or who is failing in day school, I promise you Elpis College will guide you in the proper direction.

Thank you, Elpis College!!!

I’ve had a very good experience.  I actually tried summer school at another place, but it didn’t work out for me.  I had a feeling that I was getting a mark lower than I deserved, so I came to Elpis.  I really liked the classes and the mood the place had.  It was really fun to learn English.

In all honesty, I really thought the grade-12 English class would be dreadful.  However, as a pleasant surprise, I really do feel like I learned something, and I feel accomplished.  The teacher was witty and funny, and he helped me get through a course that otherwise would have been boring.

Elpis is a wonderful school where I learned many great things.  The teachers were very nice; they showed great empathy and sympathy for our struggles to achieve the best mark we could get.  The counsellor was also very helpful in terms of asking me information about my university plans so that she could guide me towards applying for the ones that I might be interested in.  In the end, Elpis College has prepared me greatly for my post-secondary pathway, and I am truly thankful.

I truly cannot thank Elpis enough for what they have done for me. Grade 12 is a year that will affect you for the rest of your life. Without the help of Elpis, I would not have been admitted to my top program choice. Elpis helped give me a strong foundation and prepared me for university. I found myself struggling in English class, and I was worried I would not be accepted to university. Thanks to Elpis, I am now blessed to have the opportunity to choose which university I get to go to.

Taking grade-12 English at Elpis is the best choice I’ve made in my life so far.  I had a great, easygoing teacher, and you sure learn more here in one month than in six months at school.  My teacher was the best!

My experience at Elpis was great.  I can honestly say that this was one of the most fun experiences I have ever had in terms of education and learning.  The teacher was fantastic at relating to each one of us personally.  My classmates were equally fantastic.  Having only two people in the class was amazing because we were able to ask the teacher anything at any time.  I was able to understand every concept we learned to the highest degree.  It didn’t feel much like school to me; instead, it was something that I can say I looked forward to every day.  Thanks so much for the great experience!

My experience at Elpis College has been a very hard path.  At first, I underestimated the tests; however, with the guidance of my teachers, I was able to understand and achieve my desired mark.  The work and homework given to me allowed me to study for the tests, and the guidance I got whenever I didn’t understand something was also extraordinary.  Due to these factors, my educational path within this school was no less than perfection.  The content I learned here at Elpis College allowed me to find my studying pattern, and it helped me to understand not to give up just because I had one bad mark.  Thanks to this experience, I learned to become a better person.

I’m so glad I joined Elpis, as it’s an excellent school. The teaching environment is friendly and great, and classes are small, so as a student, I feel very connected to the teacher. The staff at Elpis are always looking for the greatest for you and always encouraging you to study hard. Everything at Elpis is so organized and there are so many resources that students can use to help them. Elpis took care of us and pushed all of the students to their fullest capabilities and allowed their students to shine in areas of interests and strengths. I wouldn’t have been able to reach my goal without the help and guidance of Elpis. This school definitely helped me on my road to success and my future goals.

I have taken English and math courses at Elpis and I really enjoyed it. Elpis assisted me in achieving my goals and getting acceptance letters to the University of Toronto, McMaster, Western, and Guelph. All the teachers are very friendly and easy to understand, and the small classes allow for more one-on-one teacher-student interactions. I would highly recommend Elpis to allow students to reach their full potential.

As a parent of an Elpis student, I felt they took students with the utmost care and responsibility, wanting each and every student to succeed. I felt my child was in good hands and any problem or concern I had, I was able to report it right away and received a response straight away. Elpis caters to your child and their weaknesses, helping every student grow. As a parent of a child, I want my child to succeed and feel confident, and Elpis definitely helped to make that happen.

This was a very great experience.  I already recommend Elpis to a lot of my friends.  My English teacher here is, without a doubt, my favourite, and he’s one of the best teachers I’ve had in general, regardless of the subject.  The course wasn’t easy, especially the last week, but it was much better in comparison to those in public school.
