“Thanks to teachers, my experience at UMC was delightful. i enjoyed being a part of multicultural classes and practicing my English skills while learning other subjects. Not only our teachers were good at teaching, they were also our beloved friends(in my case they were my best friends). The class discussions were educational and joyful. I got the opportunity to experience Canadian spirit and learn social norms of this country which i benefited a lot. Thank you!”

Mariana Correa MejiaColombia
“UMC is the perfect opportunity to learn and/or improve your English with teachers who are always willing to contribute to your learning process. There is one particular aspect about this school that catches my attention: UMC reflects the values of Canada since it is a multicultural school where the entire student population is made up of immigrants from Asia, Europe and Latin America. It is amazing how much different people can be in the same space and learn from each other in a friendly way.”

“Hello, this is Min Kyung Park’s mother. I am thankful to the school, seeing how Min Kyung is starting to take more initiative in her school work and having a good time with her friends. Also, I am proud of my daughter who is getting to know friends and classmates from all around the world, learning by sharing each other’s cultures.”
“UMC was the first place that i have spent my time in Canada. Basically UMC introduced Canada to me. UMC High School has a great atmosphere and positive vibe for an international student. The teachers made studying way easier by their supporting, kind and phenomenal behavior. In this school i made many friends from all around the world and get to know many cultures. The multicultural system of the school makes it even more delightful to study in it. In addition, i love the fact that how all the teachers and students in UMC respect each other's culture and traditions.”
“I fluently graduate in one year and successfully get into university. Most of the teachers are really supportive and full of patience, and they are willing to help every student and appropriately adjust the course to the quality of students. I believe this is the most unique feature of UMC and it really helps a lot of students absorb the course efficiently and successfully.”
“Perfect Teachers! They are really meticulous with the lesson plans and gentle with the students. they put a lot of efforts in helping students improve and create as many opportunities as possible for them. I am grateful that i had a chance to meet and spend a year studying with such amazing teachers here. This is a great environment for international students since their English skills, especially speaking and reading skills, can be boosted dramatically. The air conditions have some problems but other than that, if the student is open to being helped, there is nothing to complain about!”
