London International Academy private school reviews

Teachers! They are the best part of the school! They teach in an interactive manner, they have a great sense of humor and are always ready to help when I need their help
I am so happy that I chose to study at this school. This is the best thing that happened in my life.
This is a great school if you are interested in admission to universities in Canada. Science teachers in particular are distinguished by their erudition and professionalism.
International Academy London is the best choice for international students. London itself is a safe student city that is much better suited to living and studying than Toronto.
