    As a parent of a Brimmer graduate from the class of 2017, I can't say enough good things about this school. My daughter earned a Global Studies Diploma (one of three unique diploma programs at Brimmer) and now she is majoring in Political Science with a minor in Environmental Studies at a top 30 Liberal Arts college. Thanks to Brimmer's faculty and how well they know each student, along with a huge offering of course choices, our daughter was ready for success in college. Additionally, her participation in clubs and activities like Model UN, Greenline Chorus, Student Senate, Varsity Soccer and Lacrosse gave her the confidence to try lots of different things. She could never have done all of that at a larger school.

    As a graduate of Brimmer and May, I could not think of a better place for my daughter's secondary school education. The small class size and low student to teacher ratio has made all the difference for her - she really feels like her voice is heard. She has made lifelong friends, has developed new interests such as Digital Cinema and the Curling team, and she had an incredible experience on her first Winterim trip last year to London.
    Brimmer and May shelters their kids from the real world. They trick students on thinking that they have an opinion on what happens but they don't. Students that have advisors with a head position get everything handed to them. They don't have to work at all and everyone else gets left in the dust. Brimmer and May doesn't prepare your kids for the real world and hides it from them. Also, the parents are too involved in what happens in school.
