Well this restaurant is for special occasions as it is quite pricey. I always have the Prime rib and it is amazing !! My partner had the stuffed chicken which he thought was wonderful.

Markham business people, politicians, leading lights, sooner or later they all pass through the front door of The School. You'll see them. Good food, good ambiance, good service. Enjoy. I do every time.

Mediocre food that is over priced but is one of the "fancier" hotels in the area that becomes a mainstay for business people. I prefer alot of other restaurants in the area compared to their menu - Milestones, Carmelina's, Joey's....to each their own.
