As well as fully completing the BC Elementary School Curriculum, our Middle School students have numerous opportunities to develop their critical thinking, independent learning and leadership skills. Our students are encouraged to achieve their full academic potential and grade acceleration for core subjects is offered where appropriate.
We encourage all of our students to express their ideas and gain confidence. We highlight the importance of kindness, sharing, good manners and listening to others. We offer many unique programs of study which develop a depth and breadth of understanding for each child.
The students in the Middle School have different teachers for their core classes of Math, Science and Humanities (Language Arts, French and Social Studies), as well as Art, Band, Latin, Debating, Philosophy and outdoor education. There is supervised physical activity every day.
Middle School students participate in Guided Independent Study, Extended Explorations (E2) and multi-day Experiential Learning which offer opportunities for learning in depth through practical workshops and field trips. They also have the opportunity to participate in the Student Council which meets two to three times per month. Through the Student Council, the students engage in service-learning projects to support the Obakki Kids for Clean Water Foundation. Students also participate in charitable fund-raising projects such as the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s Jump Rope for Heart.
Communication with home is very important for all students at Choice. We have an ‘open door’ policy and encourage parents/guardians to communicate regularly with the school.
