Our Philosophy


Nothing is more important than our children.

We do not teach English, we teach in English.

Make learning as natural as breathing.


Why Maple Bear?


Canada's education system consistently ranks among the best in the world.

In 2015, the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) ranked Canada #1 in the English-speaking world in science, math and reading.

In science, Canada ranks #7 in the world. In math, Canada ranks #4 in the world. In reading, Canada ranks #2 in the world. As in 2012, and again in 2015, Canada maintained strong performance and outperformed other English-speaking countries in all three evaluations.

According to the OECD's Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), Canada consistently out ranks the United States and the United Kingdom, often by significant margins.

In fact, Canada ranks ahead of the systems in the US and the UK because the OECD measures an entire country's system, not just hot spots of excellence which are not accessible to all due to geography or cost.


At Maple Bear students become:

CURIOUS: Passionate about knowledge and learning.

CONFIDENT: Deeply aware of their talents and potential.

INDEPENDENT: Prepared to lead their own lives, and decide their own paths and destiny.

ANALYTICAL: Able to think freely & shape their own beliefs.

FLEXIBLE: Adaptable in a world where change is the only constant.

CREATIVE: Always motivated and enthusiastic about asking “what if?”

PREPARED: In possession of the knowledge and tools necessary for an outstanding performance at college, at work and in life, in their home country or abroad.

GLOBAL: Bilingual and culturally literate for a global future.
