The Our Kids review of High Park Oxford Learning Academy

our takeOxford Learning Academy was established in 1984 to provide supplemental tutoring, and while it still offers part-time learning, it has also developed a full-time program. But, even in the part-time offerings, the tutorial method isn’t something ancillary to traditional instruction, but is very much a alternative approach that, for many children, is more beneficial than typical classroom learning. Certainly, there are schools in Canada—Kells in Montreal, and Kenneth Gordon Maplewood in Vancouver are two prime examples—that were founded as full-time schools, yet use the tutorial method in the delivery of the curriculum. It’s beneficial because it is student-centred, student-paced, and requires more of individual learners than typical classroom instruction. Oxford Learning Academy, of course, has long lead the charge in this regard, and continues to provide an alternative that, for many learners, is transformational, allowing them to achieve their full potential in ways that other instructional approaches, and other instructional environments, simply don’t.





Principal's Message

principal

Hanna Gernega, Principal

Dear Parents,

Our Oxford Learning Academy (High Park) was created in response to a demand for an exceptional primary education program that will prepare children for academic success. This unique individualized program utilizes curriculum from Oxford Learning’s signature programs, which is specially designed to develop the fundamental skills that will prepare your child succeed in school and in life. Students will focus primarily on building a solid foundation in reading, writing, math, and fine motor skills; these basics will be further enriched by lessons in French language, science, social studies, music, art, drama, and physical education.

Like our regular Oxford Learning programming, our Learning Academy takes a different approach to learning; our curriculum builds essential thinking and learning skills that students can apply to all their academic endeavours. Our students are equipped with active minds, self-confidence, and the skills they need for lifelong success. We teach students how they learn. Our students become active leaders driven by curiosity and discovery. 

Oxford Learning Academy’s individualized programs are tailored to the academic needs of each student, whether your child is still developing basic phonics skills or is in need of enriched reading, writing or math activities. Small groups of no more than ten students allow teachers to create a fun, positive, personalized learning environment in which students can make academic gains and develop a love of learning.

We look forward to meeting your child and helping him or her discover a love for learning.

Kind regards,

Hanna Gernega


Academics


Curriculum Traditional

Primary Curriculum: Traditional


What OLC Academy says: The Oxford Learning approach is based on over 30 years of research into education and methods of teaching. Our children learn because they want to! We make the connection between school subjects and real life situations that matter to them. Our programs are theme-driven and enriched by field trips and hands-on learning. Within a safe environment, students are encouraged to take chances by celebrating successes and failures and learning from them. Oxford Learning Academy focuses on academics, with a major goal of helping our young students become better readers BEFORE they start Grade One and progress with confidence into Grades 2 and 3. All students receive a personalized program which is designed to challenge them while giving the confidence to pursue any problems. Oxford Learning holds a nationally recognized mark of quality from the AdvancED Accreditation Commission.

  • Approach:

  • Pedagogies and subject courses:

  • Mathematics Equal Balance

      These math programs feature an equal balance of “Traditional” and “Discovery” methods.
      Learn about the different mathematics approaches  


    • What OLC Academy says: Students engage in mathematical problems on a daily basis. Through each student's personalized program, our students are always evolving and building on their mathematical skills. While our progression is the same, students enter at different points and progress at different speeds. Our progression begins with learning about patterning, and gaining confidence in number sense activities early in the year. Next, they encounter addition and subtraction of two and three digit numbers with regrouping. Students group and split items for multiplication and division through the assistance of manipulatives. This inquiry style of learning is utilized for many group problem solving activities. Mathematical concepts are tackled in an individual and group setting to foster confidence in their skills and social interactions. Mathematical concepts are integrated in other thematic units throughout the year, and every unique approach to solve a problem is celebrated as students learn there are multiple routes to an answer.

    • Textbooks and supplementary materials: R.E.A.D Elite Curriculum Oxford Learning proprietary materials Math Makes Sense PRISM Math Jump Math

    • Calculator policy: At Oxford Learning Academy we rarely introduce calculators into the classroom. Students occasionally are allowed to use calculators as a tool for checking work.


    Early Reading Phonics-intensive

      Systematic-phonics programs teach young children to read by helping them to recognize and sound out the letters and syllables of words. Students are then led to blend these sounds together to sound out and recognize the whole word. While other reading programs might touch on phonetics (either incidentally or on a “when needed” basis), systematic phonics teaches phonics in a specific sequence, and uses extensive repetition and direct instruction to help readers associate specific letter patterns with their associated sounds.
      Learn about the different early reading approaches  


    • What OLC Academy says: At Oxford Learning Academy, reading is at the core of our program. Our students develop a lifelong love of reading through a challenging, engaging and personalized phonics-based curriculum with constant integration of reading into our engaging themes and everyday life. Through our academic assessment, we create an individualized program that uses our accredited R.E.A.D. Elite curriculum. This encourages our students to grow and develop at their own pace, while fostering self-confidence and . Our program begins with learning the letter sounds, blends and rhymes. Students progress to phonetically learning small words and begin reading sentences and short stories. Our assessment allows us to build their program from an appropriate starting point, and gives them the confidence to attack any story. Our school library allows the students to engage in paired reading, while weekly trips to the library give the students the chance to take their love for learning home.

    • DIBELS Testing: This school periodically uses DIBELS testing to assess reading progress.

    • What OLC Academy says: We administer a Brigance Assessment to test various aspects of reading, listening, spelling and math.


    Writing Equal balance

      Programs that balance systematic and process approaches equally likely have an emphasis on giving young students ample opportunities to write, while providing supplementary class-wide instruction in grammar, parts of sentences, and various writing strategies.
      Learn about the different writing approaches  


    • What OLC Academy says: Students are able to directly apply the phonetic skills they have learned for sounding out words and writing small sentences. As the year progresses, student learn sight words which further facilitates sentence and journal writing. Our individualized Oxford Learning materials help foster a challenging and fluid program for students with a wide range of capabilities. From learning fine motor skills and letter formation to small paragraph writing to writing their own book, there is something for each student to be proud of. When writing words, students are encouraged to try their best, and then apply editing strategies to their written work. Our students learn that a mistake is a great opportunity to learn and grow. Students are given continual feedback as they create short stories, based on topics of their choosing, for class projects.


    Science Inquiry

      Inquiry-based science emphasizes teaching science as a way of thinking or practice, and therefore tries to get students “doing” science as much as possible -- and not just “learning” it. Students still learn foundational scientific ideas and content (and build on this knowledge progressively); however, relative to expository science instruction, inquiry-based programs have students spend more time developing and executing their own experiments (empirical and theoretical). Students are frequently challenged to develop critical and scientific-thinking skills by developing their own well-reasoned hypothesis and finding ways to test those hypotheses. Projects and experiments are emphasized over textbook learning. Skills are emphasized over breadth of knowledge.
      Learn about the different science approaches  


    • Teaching approach: Every thematic unit our kids encounter directly integrates a science component. Students are active learners in our inquiry-based science curriculum. Science is all around us, and we believe it is important for students to directly understand how it impacts their life. Our human body thematic unit encourages students to understand how different systems work through kinesthetic models, such as how a heart pumps or lungs expand. Our space unit engages students when learning about space and space travel. Students often engage in challenges and experiments that are accompanied by continual feedback/ The students create hypothesis and reflect on experiments. They discuss successes and errors before developing new strategies and solutions for experiments and activities. Our science curriculum is all-encompassing as different curriculum topics are covered throughout the school year.

      Zoology
    • Treatment of evolution:

      Evolution as consensus theory
      Evolution as one of many equally viable theories
      Evolution is not taught

    Social Studies Expanding Communities

      The Expanding Communities approach organizes the curriculum around students’ present, everyday experience. In the younger grades, students might learn about themselves, for example. As they move through the grades, the focus gradually broadens in scope: to the family, neighbourhood, city, province, country, and globe. The curriculum tends to have less focus on history than Core Knowledge programs.
      Learn about the different social studies approaches  


    • What OLC Academy says: Our program follows various themes throughout the year, and social studies is incoporated into each, with a focus on themselves and our local community. We are very integrated into the history and fabric of the Junction/ High Park community and use these links to develop an understanding of the environment. Our students are always reflecting on their lessons and integrating these applications into their own lives. Our Around the World theme focuses on each student's homeland as a starting point and then continues to explore countries from all around the globe historically and in modern day. As students "travel" and explore new communities from each continent, they are excited to see similarities and differences in culture and daily life for these countries. Field trips are an important part of our curriculum. On our field trips, our themes come to life as students explore.


    Foreign Languages Communicative

      The communicative method of language acquisition emphasizes the use of the target language in authentic contexts. The approach commonly features interactive group work, games, authentic texts, and opportunities to learn about the cultural background of the language. Drills and quizzes may still be used, but less frequently than with the audio-lingual method.
      Learn about the different foreign languages approaches  


    • What OLC Academy says: Students take part in two 60 minute French lessons each week. Students learn French concepts in a variety of ways, from a fluent educator. Group games teach our students phonetic sounds letters make. Students also are included in group activities to learn vocabulary words. Students learn about colours, shapes, sounds and foods early in the program. They work up to oral communication in conversation and dialogues. The inclusive, small group setting promotes French communication in a fun and educational environment. At the elementary level, students focus on a combination of phonics/patterns, grammar, vocabulary, and comprehension.

    • Languages Offered: • French • ESL


    Fine Arts Equal Balance

      These programs have an equal emphasis on receptive and creative learning.
      Learn about the different fine arts approaches  


    • Program offers:

      Subject = offered
      Acting
      Dance
      Drama/Theatre
      Graphic Design
      Music
      Visual Arts
    • Visual studio philosophy:

      Expressive
      Disciplined
    • What OLC Academy says: At Oxford Learning Academy, we ensure that the arts are incorporated daily into our themes. A specialized music educator prepares a variety of activities to stimulate interest and creativity in music and dance. Students learn about rhythm and beats through song and dance. The class progresses to instrumental music where students learn about various instruments. They apply their knowledge to then create their own rhythm. The class learns to move to different tempos or identify emotions drawn out by music. Our visual art program encourages creativity and individuality as students are able to express themselves. Eco-art is an important aspect of our art curriculum. Recycling or "up-cycling" items from our everyday life allows students to express their thoughts and feelings while learning to value the connectivity of our environment and community.


    Computers and Technology Light integration

      Computers are used in the classroom from time to time, but integrating technology into everything students do is not a dominant focus. Digital literacy is understood to be a legitimate skill in the 21st century, but not one that should distract from teaching the subject at hand, or more fundamental skills and literacies. The idea is today’s students, being “digital natives”, are likely exposed to computers and new media enough outside the classroom: the role of the school, rather, should be to develop competencies that may otherwise get missed.
      Learn about the different computers and technology approaches  


    • What OLC Academy says: As part of our mathematics curriculum, students take part in different math games that challenge them to solve problems using various math concepts. Students often use the computers to run a portion of these activities. Computers are also integrated for some writing and research tasks where students join the teacher at the computer station for guided research on a topic of the student's interest. Educational videos are another invaluable tool that supplement other means of learning in the classroom. Students take the information they learn and engage in experiments or group discussions to display comprehension. Students will learn about different aspects of robots. They will explore ways to make items move and learn about the technology behind these movements.

    • Program covers:

      Subject = offered
      Computer science
      Robotics
      Web design

    Physical Education
    • What OLC Academy says: It is critical that students are healthy and active on a daily basis. As part of a healthy lifestyle, we teach students about their health and nutrition. Our students are also active for a minimum of 60 minutes each day. A beautiful local park is the perfect location for our students to take part in a wide variety of sports and teacher-guided games. Students develop fine and gross motor skills and work on team building activities that foster growth and cohesion. Students take turns in leadership roles for activities and learn the importance of making and following rules and directions.There is an indoor gym space available for when weather does not permit outdoor activities. Students are introduced to yoga, proper stretching techniques, dance and gymnastics to further help our students in regards to physical, social and emotional development.


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

    What OLC Academy 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.

    Preschool/K Curriculum Academic

    • Play-based
    • Montessori
    • Waldorf
    • Reggio Emilia
    • Academic

    Academic-based preschools and Kindergartens are the most structured of the different types, and have a strong emphasis on math and reading readiness skills. These programs aim to expose children to what early-elementary school is like. While time is still allotted to free play, much of the day is built around explicit lessons guided by the teacher. Classrooms often resemble play-based ones (with different stations set up around the room), but at an Academic program the teacher leads students through the stations directly, and ties these activities to a whole-class lesson or theme.

    If you want to learn more about preschool education, check out our comprehensive guide. You can also read our in-depth answers to important preschool questions: What is preschool? What are the main preschool programs? What are the main pros and cons of preschool? What do children learn in preschool? How much does preschool cost?  What makes for a great preschool?

    What OLC Academy says: We believe that it’s never too early to give a child a real academic advantage. At Oxford Learning, we teach children as young as three years old to read. Our classes are small and we use a proprietary phonics-based program that's as fun as it is effective. Most importantly, your child will discover the joys and rewards of learning through a balance of play, exploration, and discovery,


    Curriculum Pace Student-paced

    • Standard-enriched
    • Accelerated
    • Student-paced

    The main curriculum pace is non-standardized and is HIGHLY responsive to the pacing of individual students, (via differentiated instruction, differentiated assessment, etc). In theory, some students outpace the default/normalized curriculum, while others spend periods "behind schedule" if they need the extra time.

    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

    What OLC Academy says about flexible pacing: This information is not currently available.


    Academic Culture Rigorous

    • Rigorous
    • Supportive

    A school with a “rigorous” academic culture places a high value on academic performance, and expects their students to do the same. This does not mean the school is uncaring, unsupportive, or non-responsive -- far from it. A school can have a rigorous academic culture and still provide excellent individual support. It does mean, however, the school places a particular emphasis on performance -- seeking the best students and challenging them to the fullest extent -- relative to a normal baseline. High expectations and standards – and a challenging yet rewarding curriculum – are the common themes here. Keep in mind this classification is more relevant for the older grades: few Kindergarten classrooms, for example, would be called “rigorous”.

    What OLC Academy says: We foster a positive attitude towards learning by cultivating cognitive awareness in each student. By giving our students a solid foundation through an application-based approach and personalized strategies, they become confident and ambitious enough to take on any challenge. Students do not feel competitive and instead are respectful and supportive. By celebrating mistakes, as well as successes, students aren't intimidated to try new things. Our small ratio allows for us to foster positive social interactions, create active citizens and team players. The sky is the limit so our students know that there is always something exciting to discover.


    Developmental Priorities Intellectual, Balanced

    Primary Developmental Priority: Intellectual
    Academically strong, creative, and critical thinkers, capable of exercising rationality, apprehending truth, and making aesthetic distinctions.

    Secondary Developmental Priority: Balanced
    Equal attention is paid to a balance of priorities: intellectual, emotional, social, and physical.

    What OLC Academy says: Our goal is to help students find their voice and become lifelong learners. We use a holistic, thematic approach to introduce students to many world issues and subjects in order to create an understanding and appreciation of our role in the community and environment. Our academic program fosters a passion for learning within students that is applied daily. Our cognitive approach, and continual feedback, teaches students "how they learn" which helps them develop personalized strategies and increases their confidence. Our supportive and inclusive classroom fosters important physical, emotional and social development, assuring each student feels valued on a daily basis.

    • Summary: Each student is treated as an individual. Our main priority is that ourstudents are given the tools they need to feel academically successful, develop their own individualized learning strategies, and maintain high self-esteem. When students have high self-esteem, they know that they are entitled to an education, entitled to succeed, and entitled to feel good about themselves. Our approach uses a combination of personalized programming, based on cognitive and academic assessments, an accepting and secure environment, and a strong student-teacher partnership based in mutual respect and trust. Due to our small class-size, students requiring specialized attention are given both targeted one-on-one time with our qualified teachers as well as accommodations to activities or the classroom. We assure that we constantly are working towards behavioral, academic, or social goals by developing a specific plan and path, which will continue to challenge them but also give them confidence and a strong foundation.

    When I enrolled my son (age 3 at the time) into Oxford Learning Academy I didn't know what to expect.  I thought he'd be there for a year and then move on to JK at a different school.  However, after seeing how quickly he was learning I decided to keep him at Oxford..and enroll his little sister too.

    I am continuously amazed at the quality of education my children receive and the amount of effort staff put into their lesson plans.  One of the main benefits I have experienced, as a result of the small class size, is the teacher's ability to tailor lessons to my children's interests. For example, my son loves comic books so during the Greek Mythology week the class made a comic book using themselves and the Greek gods as the main characters. 

    I highly recommend Oxford Learning Academy (High Park) to any parent wanting to give their child an amazing educational experience!

    Oxford Academy is a great combination of education and fun. In less then a year, my 5 year old for whom English is a second language, propelled from virtually nothing to reading at a 2nd grade level. It feels like Oxford Academy is bar none the best in the neighbourhood when it comes to academics. The students are encouraged to go at their own pace and the sky is the limit. It is also important for every parent to see their child happy and thriving at school. I am happy to say that a smart, engaging and caring teacher, combined with a well thought out curriculum is the key, which Oxford provides. All activities are fun. From science experiments, to music, to French. The curriculum seems well rounded, diverse and engaging. Small class setting, also allows the kids to develop meaningful relationships and a sense of comradery.  ...
