Dissatisfied with the state of in public education, a small group of Halifax parents and university professors banded together in September 1958 to found a school of their own. Paul Bennett tells the story of the Halifax Grammar School in this illustrated history. Bennett describes the many larger-than-life personalities and the ebbs and flows of the school¿s development over the past fifty years.
In recent years the School has enjoyed a resurgence, expanding to acquire the historic Tower Road School, and doubling in student population. This illustrated book explores how the Grammar School has influenced education in Nova Scotia by challenging the standards and practice and offering an alternative to the public system.
