The Our Kids review of OAT - Ontario Academy of Technology

our takeIn a general sense, OAT is a specialty school in the way that, say, a ballet school is a specialty school—it brings together students who share a passion, and builds the curriculum around their engagement with that curriculum. And, like a ballet school, or a hockey school, it’s not for everyone. But, for the students that it’s for, the experience can be transformative. At OAT students work and learn alongside true peers, those who share an abiding interest in technology. The core curriculum is the provincial one, though delivered in a technology intensive learning environment.



Principal's Message

principal

Mr. Hamed Bahador, Principal

At OAT, we offer the full Ontario Curriculum with an emphasis on math and science. The idea is to eliminate the shortcomings of prior years and truly prepare students for their tough undergraduate journey. We claim that students are here for one simple reason: quality of instructions! 


Academics


Curriculum Progressive

Primary Curriculum: Progressive


What OAT says: OAT Education (Ontario Academy of Technology) is a private high school that offers Grades 9-12 courses for students to earn their Ontario Secondary School Diploma. Our students are comfortable to be themselves amongst their peers and to interact with their teachers on a first-name basis in our welcoming, down-to-earth, bright and open learning space. We focus on mathematics, science, and engineering studies by supporting those who seek admission into such post-secondary disciplines. We also prioritize self-knowledge and personal projects through experiential and inquiry-based learning for students to cultivate their unique skills and interests. We value small classes to facilitate close relationships and to best support the needs of our individual learners.

  • Approach:
    Focus Special needs
    Academic Troubled Teens


  • Pedagogies and subject courses:

  • Mathematics Traditional Math

      Traditional Math typically teaches a method or algorithm FIRST, and THEN teaches the applications for the method. Traditional algorithms are emphasized and practiced regularly: repetition and drills are frequently used to ensure foundational mastery in the underlying mathematical procedures. The traditional approach to math views math education as akin to building a logical edifice: each brick depends on the support of the previously laid ones, which represent mastery over a particular procedure or method. Traditional Math begins by giving students a tool, and then challenges students to practice using that tool an applied way, with progressively challenging problems. In this sense Traditional Math aims to establish procedural understanding before conceptual and applied understanding.
      Learn about the different mathematics approaches  


    • What OAT says: We aim to offer students a taste of what lies ahead. For many students graduating from high school, it isn't obvious, for example, how their math courses will relate to physics and chemistry courses encountered in their post-secondary studies. We value foresight in our teaching methods so that students become proactive learners who accurately predict what concepts and skills await them in future courses.

    • Textbooks and supplementary materials: Nelson and Mcgrawhill

    • Calculator policy: We do not recommend calculators for grades 10 and below; however, all students are allowed to use scientific calculators for tests and exams.


    Science Equal Balance

      Science programs that balance expository and inquiry learning equally will likely have an equal blend of tests and experiments; direct, textbook-based instruction and student-centred projects.
      Learn about the different science approaches  


    • Teaching approach: Our goal is to offer these students a taste of what lies ahead. For the student graduating high school, it isn't obvious how their math courses relate to physics and chemistry courses. We would like to paint a clear picture of the relationship between these courses to give students a head-start on their university careers. What isn't standard about our courses is the view ahead our instructors offer. Our tech workshops are a key component to this philosophy.

    • Treatment of evolution:

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

    Literature Traditional

      In traditional literature programs students focus on decoding the mechanics of texts: plot, characterization, and themes. These texts tend to include a balance of contemporary and “classic” literature. When studying a past work, students investigate its historical context -- but only insofar as this adds understanding to the work itself. Past works are therefore studied “on their own terms”, and not merely as historical artifacts to be deconstructed: traditional literature programs are firmly rooted in the humanities, and carry the belief that great literature can reveal fundamental and universal truths about the human condition. These programs emphasize class discussions and critical essay writing, and aim to develop in students critical thinking, communication skills, and a cultivated taste and ethos.
      Learn about the different literature approaches  


    • What OAT says: We teach literature primarily through a "Reader Response Theory" approach, where students are empowered to discover meanings from texts through their subjective experience as unique readers with differing identities and backgrounds. Through this method, we enact inquiry-based learning, where students are prompted with questions to help them delve into texts and develop their critical thinking skills. Students are encouraged to become reflective independent thinkers who confidently express their views on literature with clarity and persuasion. This approach encompasses the belief that there is not one correct interpretation of a text, but rather many possibilities. We see our students become active learners, engaged with a text and with their peers through discussion, rather than passively listening to the teacher. In addition to our reader response approach, we also teach elements of literature so that students have foundational knowledge to refer to in their interpretations.


    Humanities and Social Sciences Equal Balance

      These programs represent an equal balance between the perennialist and pragmatic approach to teaching the humanities and social sciences.
      Learn about the different humanities and social sciences approaches  


    • What OAT says: We use a student-centred learning approach in our humanities and social science classes, where students are encouraged to research topics of personal interest and choose project directions suited to their individual preferences. By facilitating projects and activities centred on students' freedom of choice, we see learners become genuinely invested in their own education journey. We incorporate inquiry-based practices to help students become critical thinkers and cultivate their motivation in delving further into class concepts.


    Foreign Languages Equal Balance

      These programs feature an equal blend of the audio-lingual and communicative styles of language instruction.
      Learn about the different foreign languages approaches  


    • What OAT says: We offer French, German, Latin and Spanish courses to reinforce the importance of global citizenship. We encourage students to expand their perspective by learning any one of these foreign languages.

    • Languages Offered: • French • German • Latin • ESL


    Fine Arts Creative

      Creative arts programs are studio-driven. While historical works and movements may still be taught to add context to the program, students mainly engage in making art (visual, musical, theatrical, etc). The goal is use the actual practice of art to help educate students’ emotions, cognition, and ethos.

    • What OAT says: We offer music courses at OAT. The technology element is essential since our instructors use up-to-date methods of digital sound mixing techniques.


    Computers and Technology Heavy integration

      A major effort is made to integrate the development of digital literacy throughout the curriculum and in everything students do. Digital literacy is understood to be a fundamental skill in the 21st century: it therefore follows, the idea goes, that teachers should find ways to connect every lesson back to technology. Effort is made to ensure the use of technology is meaningful and advances students’ skills beyond what they would otherwise be from using computers outside the classroom.
      Learn about the different computers and technology approaches  


    • What OAT says: Students analyze algorithms for effectiveness. They investigate ethical issues in computing and further explore environmental issues, emerging technologies, areas of research in computer science, and careers in the field.

    • Program covers:

    • What OAT says: Through GoodLife Fitness, which is conveniently located across the street from our school, we offer students an 8-month membership that they can use during their spare period or lunch break. Students have the choice to participate in fitness classes, engage in games of squash, or plan their own workouts using the extensive exercise equipment available to them. Students are not rushed during their choice of physical activity, given that our school day consists of 1 hour and 45 minute periods.

    Mental illness Gr. 11 Gr. 11
    Social justice and diversity

    What OAT 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.

    31 % of Our Kids' schools use a progressive approach for sex and health education


    What OAT says: We do not teach sex-ed through direct instruction; rather, we approach this topic through conversations instigated by student inquiries.



    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 OAT says about flexible pacing: To accommodate different schedules, we offer correspondence courses where students earn credits through online platforms that allow flexible pacing, suited to individual needs. Additionally, we provide evening and night classes for students occupied during the day, or for those who simply prefer to be in school after typical hours.


    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.

    What OAT says: We set high standards to prepare our students for success in their post-secondary education journeys while simultaneously nurturing the curiosity and liveliness of our students by encouraging a learning process that is not based on rote learning or dominated by direct instruction. The academic culture we promote is one of community and approachability, where we seek to eliminate the barriers between teachers and students that are often found in the public school system. We aim to do more than simply impart knowledge on students; we aim to build relationships founded on mutual trust and respect.


    Developmental Priorities Balanced

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

    What OAT says: Our faculty is comprised of teachers who prioritize intellectual development, emotional intelligence, social awareness, physical wellness, and spiritual resourceful in different ways. Through these differences, our students are exposed to various teaching philosophies and practices that ultimately bring them a balanced experience. We aim, both individually and collectively, to offer our students a wide-lensed perspective of these multiple modes of development.


    Special Needs Support High

Our small class sizes allow us the time and energy to understand our students on a deeper level so that changes to instruction, projects, activities, and teaching strategies can be made to help maximize the receptivity of our learners.

    • What OAT says: We very much value the individuality of each student, and with that, comes the recognition that each individual learner is comprised of distinct needs. We aim to meet these needs through one-one-one interactions and conferences where each student is fully supported and accommodated during his/her learning process.

    Day School is Not Enough

    Toni joined OAT with an eye on her future.  She's been keen to work through the high school math curriculum ahead of schedule, and will have completed Advanced Functions (MHF4U) with us before the end of her grade 11 school year.

    Studying an extra course on top of a regular day school schedule can be challenging, but Toni has kept pace due in part to OAT's small class sizes and ongoing teacher interaction.  It's quite simply easier to pick up new concepts when you can work closely with good teachers.

    We look forward to welcoming Toni back this summer, as she plans to study Physics 12 (SPH4U) at OAT.

    Extra Help for University Student

    Alexa is one of many University students getting a leg up at OAT.  As a first year University student taking classes in Physics, Alexa has been studying with us to reinforce the ideas behind Newton's Laws, Energy, Momentum, Static Equilibrium and Thermodynamics, among other concepts.

    Alexa's attention to detail and strong work ethic are an excellent complement to what our teachers bring to her one-on-one tutorials.  It's easier to help a student who wants to help themselves, and Alexa's success in her courses is a testament to this.  Our teachers are more adept at meeting students' specific learning goals when the student understands well what their goals are.

    Next year, Alexa will continue her pursuit of her undergraduate degree and OAT will continue to support her in developing her understanding.

    Cameron's Physics and Robotics Ambitions

    Cameron is enrolled at OAT as a part of our Physics reach ahead program. For a 9th grader interested in Robotics and Engineering, our weekly after school program in Physics has proven to be quite fruitful.

    After 5 months of working in different areas of Mechanics, Cameron has progressively developed his knowledge and problem solving skills in various fields of Physics such as Motion, Forces and Dynamics, Periodic Motion, Waves, and Energy Sources.

    For Cameron, his future at OAT might include further courses in Physics or Robotics in September 2015, and a Reach Ahead Summer course in math.
