The curriculum focuses on skills, which promote self-reflection, and provides students with the opportunity to make sense of their learning. It also encourages students to use the latest media platforms to present their learning and express their thinking.
We are passionate about learning and ensuring that every student has a school experience that will develop a love of learning and the skills and knowledge necessary for success in High School and beyond.
Homework and Assessment
Students use an online homework portal called ManageBac, which records homework assignments and also houses worksheets and other class resources. Each subject sets one homework assignment per week that requires approximately 30 minutes.
Teachers communicate with families about student achievement and progress in four academic reports during the school year. In each report, the teacher describes students' academic and social development and lists targets in for the student to concentrate on before the next report. Our teachers are highly trained in estimating and setting academic targets that challenge student learning.
