Our rigorous Elementary Program blends academics into a socially supportive environment, and establishes a strong foundation of learning to support both secondary and post-secondary studies.

Our comprehensive Elementary Program is based on the Canadian (Ontario) curriculum and the student timetable includes the following subjects:

  • English/Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • International Languages (Chinese, French, or Japanese)
  • Science and Technology
  • STEAM (Genius Hour)
  • The Arts (Drama, Dance, Visual Arts, and Music)
  • Social Studies
  • Health and Physical Education

We are known for having established an engaging and challenging curriculum where students can thrive with the support of our professionally trained teachers and the socio-emotional care experienced within a friendly learning atmosphere. We believe that a quality education begins with a safe and supportive classroom environment and builds on the collective strengths of the students. Our commitment is to

  • Challenge our students intellectually
  • Help them grow socially
  • Guide them toward independent thinking
  • Develop advanced problem-solving skills

These skills will help prepare them not only for our excellent Secondary Program but also for life in the future.

In addition, our student-centered approach to learning develops thinking and communication skills, problem-solving skills, and social skills as well as fostering empathy through the School’s approach to conflict resolution, celebration of diversity, and commitment to civic responsibility. This responsibility exists within both physical and virtual learning spaces.

The integration of technology throughout the curriculum, continuing from our Pre-Grade 1 Program, assists students in using technology in safe and meaningful ways. This includes collaborating online and accessing learning support materials off-site through our web-based learning platforms. Curriculum-based field trips support our philosophy that learning occurs both within the classroom and outside in the community.
