2016-2017 Graduates


When the parents of former pupil Ada Cirlia moved to Texas, Ada was accepted in a school rated by Newsweek magazine as being among the thirteen best schools in the entire United States: an accomplishment Ada then surpassed by winning the President’s Award for Personal Achievement signed by George W. Bush.


Not all graduates of the Sidney Ledson Institute achieve such distinctive triumphs (though we rarely receive reports of their continuing scholastic successes); and yet, select Junior-High schools - all requiring top Secondary School Admittance scores for entry - offer a wealth of scholarships and bursaries to attract our graduates.


Consider the academic rewards offered to our graduates in just one year (2017). Ivan Wang - who joined us at age two - won scholarships to both Upper Canada College and Ridley College, and admittance to De La Salle College and St. Michael's College. But Ivan chose, instead, the prestigious University of Toronto School.


Zahra Somji who similarly joined us as a preschooler - turned down Havergal College and St. Clement’s School to join Ivan at his preferred school. And a scholarship offered by Upper Canada College didn’t stop Brad Gardea from joining his two friends at the U. of T. School.


Ethan Urbanky received five impressive invitations but chose Upper Canada College, and was joined there by Luke Yang. Spencer Reece chose De La Salle rather than St. Michael’s College School, while Janson Wang chose Crescent School.
