Achievement at Bishop Pinkham School
Students at Bishop Pinkham School have long held a reputation for being exemplary citizens, dedicated learners, strong visual and performing artists, athletes and positive people. Success is due to a combination of each student's talent, skill, commitment and hard work, alongside support from parents, teachers and peers.
There are two significant variables that positively affect student achievement: regular attendance and assignment completion. Homework may include:
- Completion of work not finished in class.
- Completion of short term and long term assignments.
- Review of work covered that day.
- Study for exams and tests.
Section 2 of the CBE Administrative Regulation 3066 - Homework states:
“The assignment of formal exercises for completion is the prerogative of the teacher, but every encouragement shall be given to pupils (and parents) to set aside some regular time each evening for home study.”
The Administrative Regulation also states
The nature and amounts of home study recommended are as follows:
- Grades 7 to 9: In the junior high school level, students are expected to study from 1 to 1½ hours per school night.
