Messages from our graduates

“Thank you Pattison High School for teaching us to be bold enough to use our voice, brave enough to listen to and believe in ourselves, and strong enough to live the life we’ve always imagined.”

Darya, University of Toronto

“During the few years I studied at Pattison High School, I was nourished by the great school system and the dedication of the teachers who have always been supportive and helpful during my struggles. I would not have made it here to Monash without the devoted assistance of all the faculties and my fellow classmates at PHS.”

Andrew, Monash University

“Even though I’ve only been at Pattison for a year and learning remotely, that hasn’t stopped me from having a wonderful experience. I am very grateful to the teachers who have always patiently guided me, no matter what problems I had.”

Harry, University of Alberta

“I am so grateful to all of the teachers at Pattison High School. The understanding and support they gave me meant so much and I would not be the person I am today without their help. Most importantly, I realized how to manage my mentality to face future challenges. This has shaped me into the capable young adult that I am today.”

Raiany, University of British Columbia
