From the moment a student enters our door, their learning experience is continuously personalized and tailored to ensure that the education they receive is holistic. To do this, we assess each student before they start their courses to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses.
Teachers take seriously their responsibility to prepare their students for success by communicating accurately the knowledge, skills and attitudes that students are expected to learn.
As prescribed by the Ontario Ministry of education the evidence of student achievement is collected over time from three different sources:
c) Student projects
Using multiple sources of evidence increases the reliability and validity of the evaluation
At anytime, whether due to changes in the student's progress or changes in interest, our counsellors, teachers, student and student's parents will meet to discuss any necessary adjustments to the student's study plan to enable the continuation of academic excellence.
We believe that strong foundations make strong students who will be able to overcome any obstacles thrown in their path. This why our dedicated teachers and staff are with our students every step of the way, providing them with the knowledge, advice and support that will help them succeed not just in school, but also in their future professional lives.
We teach them as teachers but care for them as parents. We provide for our students the guidance, the opportunities, and the tools to succeed and they always amaze us with what they can achieve.
In addition, because our location beside University of Toronto Mississauga campus give us a unique opportunity to be a part of a rich and vibrant academic community.
