Principal's Message

principal

Joseph Pignataro, Head of School

My name is Joseph Pignataro, and I am thrilled to have been appointed Head of School at Blyth Academy Global High School. I cannot wait to meet all of you so that we may begin this incredible journey of global exploration and self-discovery. In my 30 years of teaching experience in both the public and private high schools of Ontario, I have had the opportunity to make wonderful memories while in the classroom, but have had my most memorable experiences outside the walls of a school. I have travelled throughout Europe and the United States, teaching History/Art History in their native environment; U.S. History at Gettysburg and Washington, and the Italian Renaissance in Florence and Rome.

    Sex and Health Education
    Topics covered in sex and health education: This information is not currently available.

    What Global High School says: This information is not currently available.

    Approach:
    Mostly value-neutral

    By and large, we teach sex education free of any particular moral or ethical standpoint. We try not to impose any particular values or value systems (such as social, political, or ideological values) on our students when teaching sex and related issues.


    Fairly value-based

    Sex education is sometimes taught from a particular moral or ethical standpoint. Sometimes particular values or value systems (such as social, political, or ideological values) are invoked when teaching sex and related issues.

    Traditional

    This includes a range of positions. A traditional approach might, for example, go as far as emphasizing the nuclear family and complete abstinence from sex before marriage. Alternatively, this approach might simply involve placing less emphasis on sex outside of the context of marriage and more emphasis on abstinence. Or finally, it might just involve focusing less on sex outside of the context of marriage.

    Progressive

    This might mean more emphasis is placed on the importance of such things as social equality, diversity, and choice in sex education.

    Curriculum Pace Standard-enriched

    • Standard-enriched
    • Accelerated
    • Student-paced

    Broadly-speaking, the main curriculum -- like that of most schools -- paces the provincially-outlined one. This pace is steady and set by the teachers and school. The curriculum might still be enriched in various ways: covering topics more in-depth and with more vigor than the provincial one, or covering a broader selection of topics.

    Flexible pacing:

    Flexible pacing style = offered
    Subject-streaming (tracking)
    Multi-age classrooms as standard
    Ability-grouping (in-class) as common
    Frequent use of cyber-learning (at-their-own-pace)
    Regular guided independent study opportunities
    Differentiated assessment

    Academic Culture Supportive

    • Rigorous
    • Supportive

    A school with a “supportive” academic culture focuses more on process than short-term outcomes: academic performance is a welcomed side-benefit, but not the driving focus. This does not mean the school lacks standards, or has low expectations for its students: a school can have a supportive academic culture and still light the fire of ambition in its students. It does mean, however, the school provides a less intensive culture than schools with a “rigorous” academic classification, and is focused more simply on instilling a love of learning and life-long curiosity.

    Amazon & Galapagos July 2016

    "Hey, this is a trip of a life time! You will see so many things you'll never see anywhere else. Take advantage of all the excursions and try new things. Also don't pack a lot of clothes because you'll only wear a few things anyways. Don't forget to thank your parents too because not everyone has the chance to do something as amazing as this!"
