Dual Track Programs 

Hidden Valley School is a dual track school (French Immersion and regular English classes). We offer these programs for the Kindergarten to Grade 3 students. The entry points for French Immersion are Kindergarten and Grade 1 only.

Hidden Valley School Philosophy

  • The school supports a child-centered approach which includes:
  • Fostering feelings of mutual trust and respect in a warm, supportive climate
  • Enhancing feelings of self-worth
  • Encouraging students to take ownership and accept responsibility for their behaviour
  • Using positive reinforcement and logical consequences
  • Providing opportunities for student involvement in decision making
  • Teaching strategies for conflict resolution

Parents as Partners

We recognize that parents are a young child’s first teacher. Once children start Kindergarten it is considered a shared responsibility between home and school. We look forward to working with you throughout the coming year in making your child’s total educational experience enriched, comprehensive and rewarding. We encourage parents to discuss the school’s programming and activities with your child and your child’s teacher on a regular basis. We invite your inquiries and concerns, and we appreciate your support and encouragement.

Homework Guidelines

The purpose of homework is to:

  • Reinforce lessons taught during class time
  • Give students extra practice in a subject
  • Encourage a responsible attitude towards work
  • Enable parents to monitor student progress
  • Strengthen ties between home and school
  • Introduce and maintain time management skills

If a student is experiencing repeated difficulties with assignments then the student and/or parents are encouraged to contact the classroom teacher to review the problem.
