Brar, Kaloty, Mazumdar and Sheth all plan to attend the University of Waterloo for engineering.
“Self-motivation and initiative have played a crucial role in the development of my work ethic. I would not be here today without the support of my teachers, peers and supportive parents,” said Kaloty.
Apurva Dixit, Jason Liu, Jovana Pajovic and Anjali Thatte of Glenforest also achieved a perfect 100 per cent average, scoring the highest averages in Mississauga.
One student, Pajovic, plans to attend the University of Toronto for humanities and social sciences.
“Learn to prioritize and actively engage yourself in extra-curricular activities because they teach you necessary social and teamwork skills,” she advised.
Last year, there were 4,738 students on the Ontario Top Scholar list with three graduates achieving 100 per cent average at the Peel board.
This year, that number has grown to 4,867 Ontario scholars, or students graduating grade 12 with an average of 80 per cent or higher in their top six grade 12 courses.
