Our Take: École Socrates-Démosthène

our takeIn terms of the total student population, École Socrates-Démosthène is be one of the largest schools in the city. That said, it’s divided over five campuses, allowing for the provision of very personal, student-centred instruction. The program is uniquely tri-lingual: English, French, and Greek. The benefits of language immersion are vast, well beyond proficiency in any particular language, and ESD is a great example of that. Language is a window on the world, and here provides a rich interface with the cultures of Montreal and beyond. The school was founded in 1909, and has quietly added a nice piece to the educational mosaic ever since. The program emphasizes facility with the core curriculum as well as interpersonal interaction and the values of education. Instruction is challenging and supportive.

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

    What ESD 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.
