What is the impact of proximity between primary school and secondary school?

Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from Hamid v Hamid, 2016 ONSC 5013 (CanLII):

The choice of school should be made on its own merits and based in part on the resources that each school offers in relation to a child’s needs, rather than on their proximity to their residence of one parent or the other, or the convenience that his attendance at the nearest school would entail (see Wilson v. Wilson, [2015] ONSC 479 at para. 110).

Of paramount consideration is the school that will give the child the best competitive advantage, or provide the greatest confidence and motivation, or that will facilitate the child’s relationship with others, including his parents and classmates, or best promote his all-around development (see Schloegel v. McCroary, [2012] BCSC 1606).
