The JCS Way
Joane Cardinal-Schubert High School is an inclusive and diverse learning community where relationships form the foundation that makes up our work. Students will have the opportunity to develop strong connections with peers and staff in the presence of an engaging, creative, active, inclusive and meaningful programs of study. Through a technology-rich environment, flexible use of time/space, and an inter-disciplinary approach to learning, students will be able to pursue their passions and potential. This is “Joane Cardinal-Schubert way”! Please see our detailed "Vision Booklet" link on the right side of this page for more information. Some highlights from this document will include...
Together, we will identify a staff advocate for each of our students. This advocate is the first contact for students and their family during their time at Joane Cardinal-Schubert High School.
SOAR (Student Ownership & Academic Resiliency)
A focused portion of the school day that is designed to allow students and teachers to build positive learning relationships. SOAR provides a regular opportunity for both enrichment and learning interventions (ex. special projects across subjects, tutorials, extended labs/presentations, small group instruction by teachers etc.). Students are encouraged to take ownership for their learning and advocate for their needs during this time. If students are not diligent in their studies, SOAR may become a mandatory time to ensure they are supported.
