Packer Collegiate Institute Reviews

I attended Packer from PK through to 12th grade, and they truly were, the best years of life. Students are expected to thrive academically, but that's not to say it's a hothouse, where only the fittest survive. Support is there for students who need it, for whatever reason that may be. During 10th grade, I had a period of suffering with health issues, which at the time I had receive no diagnosis for. I was well supported by the school, and as a result my grades didn't suffer. Once I received a diagnosis - thankfully nothing too serious - the school continued to support me, while I received treatment. Without such incredible support from the school, at that time in life, I would not have graduated with a 4.0 GPA!

Packer has overall good academics and a good staff, but doesn't always prioritize academics. Also, Packer is very, very liberal, and although not officially, more conservative students are occasionally hassled for their political views. Packer also likes to guilt-trip, however, and cis, straight, white, rich, males can sometimes feel targeted by the administration. The students are overall academically gifted, but sometimes the class placement can be stressful for people who are slower learners. I really like my school, and find the majority of the administration (especially in the middle school) qualified and well-liked. The students in my grade are incredibly kind and thoughtful, and many of the teachers are too.
Packer is an absolutely wonderful place to attend school. It is a very close-knit community and fosters great student-teacher relationships. There systems in place to make sure that you succeed here and get the best education possible, so you never feel as if you are falling through the cracks or loosing track of all of your work. That being said, Packer is still very academically rigorous, but the teachers are always very accessible and are willing to help out with whatever difficulties arise.
