"We always had faith our son was in good hands. He leaves Mabin better off than when he came in so that is a success in our books. The Mabin teachers are exceptional and dedicated educators and we are lucky to have known you. We know that our son will have more successes and challenges in the years ahead, but the foundation he received in his years at Mabin will be something he draws from as he navigates it all. When I sit with other parents and they complain about “kids these days”, I always think, nope not the Mabin kids. They are the changemakers our world needs."

After Mabin


The large majority of Mabin graduates choose independent schools for Grade 7, but our students do well in both private and public institutions. Parents and graduating students are guided by our Transition Team to make the appropriate choice for their next school.

We recognize the transition process can seem overwhelming, so our Transition Team meets with parents individually, schedules tours with other Mabin students at Grade 7 schools, assists students with the application process, guides the creation of their portfolios, and conducts mock interviews with each student.

All of these supports help families have a positive experience with the transition.

Mabin students receive multiple offers from independent schools and thrive in the schools they choose to attend. Below is a graph representing the number of recent Mabin grads, including the Class of 2021, who have attended each of the schools listed.
