<snip> Out of curiosity, is 1750 considered to be a small school? My highschool, with 5 grades (9-OAC) is just shy of 2300, and is considered to be quite a large school. As far as languages go, in Toronto the languages schools offer tend to be decided by the ethnic makeup of the student body - my school, being in a European neighbourhood, offers 5 years of French, 4 of German, and 3 of Spanish. Other schools in the city offer all sorts of crazy languages, for anywhere from one to three years - a friend of mine has taken Finnish and Tamil at her (very multicultural) school. -- Robert
