Grades 1-5

For Grades 1 to 5, we offer a comprehensive and rigorous curriculum consisting of:

  • Physical Education
  • Health Education
  • French

Our courses are based on Ontario Ministry of Education curriculum guidelines, and we have clearly articulated learning expectations for each grade and subject. Each unit of study has a central idea, learning expectations, lines of inquiry, learning skills, work habits, and learner profile attributes.

From Grade 1-5 we divide our learning day into thirds:

1/3 Language Arts/Social Studies

1/3 Math/Science

1/3 Hebrew/Judaic Studies

Our Student Services team provides support for our learners and gives strategies for our teachers in order to best meet the needs of our students. Classes are heterogeneous in order for children to be able to learn from and with each other and to support each other’s strengths. The first 15 minutes of the day is devoted to “home room time” with the teacher in that third of the day being the advocate or “in loco parentis” of the children in that class.

Our students learn by critically thinking through active engagement and with support in a community of learners.
