Your child, regardless of age, is surrounded by a network of faculty and staff who truly get to know him or her. These professionals are advisors, homeroom teachers, grade supervisors, division directors, coaches, supervisors, counsellors and administrators, all of whom are available to provide ongoing support and act as positive role models and mentors. Small class sizes allow for more individualized attention. Peer support is also nurtured through co-curricular activities where students develop skills and build mutually supportive relationships.
Age-appropriate education is provided to all students on a range of subjects including cleanliness, being a good friend, positive relationships, digital citizenship, stress management and consent. In Middle and Senior School, dedicated advisory periods ensure that these important topics are addressed with greater frequency.
A Team Approach
Student wellness teams meet weekly to identify students who may be experiencing difficulty and develop an action plan for support. They address all aspects of student life – academics, co-curriculars, discipline, physical and mental health.
Student activities teams meet every two-week cycle to discuss student involvement and scheduling. Time and effort are devoted to finding the right balance and ensuring that students do not overcommit themselves and compromise their mental health.
