Equiping students to Communicate effectively and confidently.
Our curriculum is built upon the internationally acclaimed Ontario Secondary School Diploma curriculum, which provides a strong foundation and systematic support to our differentiated Global High School Program.
The quality of the curriculum is the foundation of our ability to deliver academic rigor and instructional excellence. Teachers are provided with multiple resources to springboard their instruction. For instance, detailed lesson plans are provided with varied instructional strategies for teachers to adapt to their various contexts.
We also provide differentiated resources at various levels for teachers to adapt to the students’ learning styles and abilities. Extension and group activities are also provided to enhance the blended learning model, combining individualized instruction with opportunities to collaborate and build social and interpersonal skills in classrooms. Each students’ success is a success for Meadowlands Canadian School.
We are committed to ensuring that are education style is inclusive, we prioritize on developing our students in critical thinking, problem solving and discussions as opposed to memorization. In addition to this, we also teach students how to reflect on their work and evaluate their own process. All this is to ensure that they do not just go through the class, but the class goes through them.
