Learning principles

The school's classrooms offer experiential learning through grouping and differentiation to meet the needs of all of our learners. A typical learning environment at Collegiate American would be heterogeneous groups of students learning the same objective in multiple different ways. They are conversing with one other and collaborating at any given moment. The infusion of technology through the use of iPads and laptops keep CAS students competitive with 21st century practices. Assessment keeps the school abreast of each student’s learning, progress and attainment. It is important that we are able to extend or remediate our curriculum to support our students. We set goals and work as a team to attain those goals. Learning happens outside the classroom as well with field trips that support the curriculum, events that celebrate global minded thinking and display our learning. Students are active participants in planning and executing their leadership.

Student Support

Support for special learning needs

Yes

Learning support teachers offer support to students from PKG to Grade 10 by using pull-out and push-in models. Students in focus include those who are struggling with academics, have poor organizational skills, low motivation, difficulty staying on task, fail to complete classwork or homework, and / or require academic enrichment. The learning support need is determined by previous diagnosis of special needs, entrance assessments, teachers' concerns and referrals, class and school assessments. Relevant students are categorized according to their level of need: 1) Focus - Students who are up to one grade level below their peers. The teacher completes a teacher intervention plan to be monitored every 4 to 6 weeks. 2) Learning Support - Students who are more than one grade level behind, not diagnosed as having a disability and where the teacher intervention plan has not been successful. A Learning Support Plan (LSP) may be developed with the teacher, learning support teacher and parent. 3) Student with Exceptional Needs - Students who have received a learning disability diagnosis or other diagnosis that impacts their daily participation and progress in school activities. Some of these students have external support providers who may attend school with them. Depending on the student need, an Individual Educational Plan (IEP) may be developed.
