Remember, it will always feel good when after extensive hard work, you achieve something on your own without any help or assistance. This sense of achievement will eventually generate the feeling of pride, self-esteem and confidence. That self-confidence will boost your spirits, and you start seeing positivity in every situation and problem. However, achieving such a state is not possible without discipline.
The school was named as the TDSB secondary school showing the greatest rate of improvement in the 2011–2012 Fraser Institute Report. The school is (as of the 2014–2015 ranking) ranked at 16th place out of the 627 secondary schools in the province.
