Junior High curriculum helps bridge between primary and senior high. The focus will be on age-appropriate education, and support for students’ wellbeing and transitions. Under five guiding principles, the Junior High will provide challenging educational offerings that engage young adolescents, while giving them a sense of belonging and support through the changes they face.
Distinct identityJunior High students will be encouraged and supported to develop their own group identity within the wider high school. This can involve dedicated school areas and events.
Quality teachingTeachers working with students in the Junior High years will support young teens through these crucial early high school years. They will use the best practices, technology, and purposeful collaboration to positively impact students.
Student wellbeingWe will meet the social and emotional needs of Junior High students with a strong focus on pastoral care and support students as they adjust to new routines and greater academic demands.
Parent involvementWe want parents to stay connected with their students’ learning when they enter Junior High. Parent involvement in assemblies, special events, award ceremonies and leadership presentations will be welcomed.
LeadershipWe will encourage students to create leadership roles. Dedicated teachers experienced with teaching young adolescents will lead Junior High supported by the principal and the administration team.
Across the curriculum, our faculty and staff have committed themselves to a school-wide goal of seeking ways to create rigorous, relevant, and engaging curriculum. In this multidisciplinary approach, teachers fuse skills, knowledge, or even attitudes into the regular school curriculum. Cambridge Secondary 1 curriculum frameworks are used to teach English, mathematics and science.
