Schools on Toronto are similar to school in many other places what makes them great is the exposure students get to diverse cultures and ethnicities. Learning the way of the world rather than just the North American way. Toronto is also home to some of the best universities, namely York University, especially their business school (Schulich School of Business- Ranked #1 in Canada) and University of Toronto, known for their Financial and Engineering Programs.

There are some of the best museums and hundreds of art galleries in Toronto. Live Theater is always an option and because of the strong diversity here you can be adventures when you choose to eat out!

There is always something going on every weekend throughout the year, but in summer the city comes alive with multiple festivals and events going on simultaneously. You can never run out options for things to do. In addition, making your way around toronto is easy because of the accessible transit system which spans a large area.
