Encouraging Independent Growth
The Prep School is a special place where children are challenged to try new things, to discover and learn in a secure, supportive environment. Students enter the Prep School in Junior Primary and proceed to Grade Four in our own unique version of a Junior School. It’s all about great beginnings, talented faculty, and the individual attention the children receive to guide them through these important formative years.
We recognize that learning and success are not a straight line, and each student has their own way of learning. All students develop their learning skills at different rates and develop skills in different areas at their own pace. To adapt to each student's development, our teachers use a Team Teaching strategy to give each student the support they need to achieve excellence at Grammar and in life.
What is Team Teaching?
Team teaching is when two teachers co-plan and deliver the core subjects (language arts, math, science and social studies). Lessons are delivered in a partnership model, optimizing our student-teacher ratios and allowing us to form meaningful relationships with our learners. In addition, learning data is gathered to ensure we monitor each student's progress against measured benchmarks for their skills and grade.
