Chisholm staff creates an INDIVIDUAL EDUCATION PLAN for each student. We work with students who require small classes, assistive technology, and specialized staff to be successful. Students gain confidence through a structured and supportive teaching style. We prepare students academically and personally to succeed at college or university. Over 92% of our students are admitted to the post-secondary institution of their choice. Our team includes teachers, counsellors, psychologists, and special educators. — Visit school website
Chisholm was created to address the needs of the kinds of learners who are prone to falling through the cracks of a traditional education. Special needs is the term we might use, though the definition used at Chisholm admits a broader understanding than we typically grant, including students from across the entire academic spectrum. What they share is a need for a more structured academic experience. The school is headed by Dr. Howard Bernstein and Dr. Shirley Bryntwick, both clinical psychologists. The ideal student is one who requires more than they are able to get from a traditional academic setting, and who benefits from a very structured, personal, planned approach to their education. A robust interface between parents and the school is encouraged, and close communication is ongoing throughout the academic year.
