  • Friendly, caring environmentParent 11/26/2019
    Our son is currently in his second year at STIX as a P4.

  • Love, love, love!Parent 07/30/2014
    Stix is a remarkable place with caring teachers and supportive staff. It is a big school but there are lots of opportunities that come with its size. Basketball, after school science club, math and reading nights, to name a few.
