Programs offered to personalize learning for our students are:
Our Grade 10 students are organized into Learning Communities, each community supported by 4 core teachers (Math, Science, ELA and Social Studies). Our teachers work as a team to meet curricular outcomes but more importantly teachers will work together in planning, assessing student achievement/success and in providing enrichment (such as IB) and support/intervention for those students who face challenges. Grade 10 Communties will be: full year, collaborative and interdisciplinary. Focus is on equity, rich task design and opportunities for crosscurricular learning which can include PE, FAPA and CTS. Time and scheduling will be flexible and responsive to student needs and curriculum. All Grade 10’s will be enrolled in Learning Strategies 15, a 3-credit course.
As a Grade 11 student, you are expected to register for at least 38 credits. You and your parents are encouraged to review admission requirements for various post-secondary institutions and plan your program accordingly. Students
who have a credit deficiency may not be eligible for a spare in their program. Note | Many post-secondary schools will use your Grade 11 marks for early acceptance and scholarship purposes. All Grade 11 students will be enrolled in “Learning Strategies 25”, a three-credit course.
In Grade 12 you are expected to register for at least 30 credits. Your primary responsibility when selecting your courses is to ensure you can complete your program of studies. If you are planning to continue your education you will also need to make sure you will meet the entrance requirements for the post-secondary institution and program of your choice. All Grade 12 students will be enrolled in “Learning Strategies 35”, a three-credit course.
Returning Grade 12 Students: A limited number of students may be allowed to return for a fourth year of studies to complete their diploma requirements depending on enrollment in Grades 10 - 12. Students will need to apply by March
15th for consideration. ELL and K and E learners are given priority alongside students who are in good standing and embrace our guiding principles of being “polite, punctual and persistent” in their studies.
Iris is the web-based teaching and learning application consisting of student learning plans, learner profiles, resource library and teacher and administrator workspaces.
Iris brings together student voice, learning data and supports such as IPPs, and best research in supporting teachers and administrators in making well-informed instructional decisions for each student.
The “student learning plan” is the primary space for students to be able to document and articulate personal learning processes. Iris supports students in developing and communicating their ongoing understandings as a learner, creating goals and exploring strategies that will enable them to be successful in their learning.
