    Curriculum pace

     
    Standard-enriched
    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.

    Academic culture

     
    Rigorous
    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”.

    Our Take

    Our Take

    LONDON INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY

    London International Academy was founded in 2002 with an explicit attention to preparing students for success at university in North America. In the years since the student population has grown considerably, as has the school’s mandate. Today annual enrollment is 350 students who arrive from around the world. The school has developed a full palette of services with the international student in mind, including language instruction, university guidance, cultural exchange programs and a challenging curriculum. The ideal student is one with an eye to succeeding in post-secondary studies in Canada.

    GREENWOOD COLLEGE SCHOOL

    Having been founded in 2002, Greenwood is a relatively young school, though has grown in response to the needs of the families that enroll here, and the place that it has within the academic mosaic of the city. It still thinks of itself as a small school, and the lived experience is personal and close-knit. That said, at 475 students, it’s certainly not tiny, and the curricular and extracurricular programs benefit from the size. The current facility, opened in 2016, is an apt expression of the goals of the school, as well as the families that support it. It includes flexible learning spaces and up to date athletic and arts spaces. Greenwood, in some sense, still flies a bit below the radar in the public consciousness, though given the success and growth it’s experienced, that won’t last long. The ideal student is one able to thrive within an active, academically oriented learning environment.

    Message

    The Academy prides itself in providing students with a challenging and excellent high school educational program almost invariably leading to admission to one of the leading universities in Canada. The school also provides a well rounded education with much organized social, recreational and educational activity at the school and class level. As testimony to the quality of our students and our educational program students from the Academy have achieved and continue to achieve outstanding results in mathematics, computing and physics contest organized by the Canadian Mathematics Society and the University of Waterloo.

    London International Academy has a first rate academic program, a fully qualified and very well educated teaching staff, bright and comfortable classrooms, continuous student counseling and advising, and a very effective and enthusiastic student support staff. All of these factors contribute to student enjoyment, motivation and adaption to North American culture which obviously includes the rapid acquisition of English. This is confirmed and illustrated by the tremendous disproportionate success of international students enrolled in the school in obtaining university and college places.

    London, Ontario is a healthy, safe and pleasant small city which facilitates student involvement in the local community. Students who enroll in the Academy will be embarking on a pleasant but rigorous and stimulating educational journey culminating in acceptance by an excellent university.

    Yours Sincerely,


    Paul Debenham
    Principal

    I am delighted that you are interested in finding out more about Greenwood College School. Greenwood is one of the great success stories within Toronto’s independent school community. Since opening our doors in 2002, we have grown from 72 students to our present enrolment in 2019-2020 of 498 students in Grades 7-12. 

    When our graduates leave Greenwood, they do so with a few things in common. Our alumni are confident, tell you what’s on their minds, and are eager to contribute. They’re not intimidated by uncertainty. They have a sense of adventure and of themselves. We find that families who choose Greenwood share that independent spirit, and want their child to develop the qualities they need to explore what excites them – whether that’s volunteering with Doctors Without Borders, or pursuing a graduate degree at Cambridge. 

    We hope you enjoy learning more about Greenwood, and we encourage you to visit our website to book a tour of the school. You will love what you see and hear.

      Our Take: primary curriculum type

      Our Take: primary curriculum type

      LONDON INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY

      Traditional curricula tend to be very content-based and rooted in the core disciplines. It is a structured approach that involves the teacher delivering a unified curriculum through direct instruction. Students usually learn by observing and listening to their teacher, studying facts and concepts in textbooks, and completing both tests and written assignments - which challenge students to not only demonstrate their mastery of content but their ability to analyze and deconstruct it critically. Class discussions are also used to create critical dialogue around the content of the curriculum.

      GREENWOOD COLLEGE SCHOOL

      Progressive (sometimes called "in- quiry-based") curricula attempt to place children's interests and ideas at the heart of the learning experience. Instead of lessons being driven by predetermined pathways, progressive curricula are often "emergent", with learning activities shaped by students' questions about the world. Instead of starting with academic concepts and then tying it to everyday experience, progressive methods begin with everyday experience and work back to an academic lesson. Teachers provide materials, experiences, tools and resources to help students investigate a topic or issue. Students are encouraged to explore, reflect on their findings, and discuss answers or solutions.


      Our Take: secondary curriculum type

      Our Take: secondary curriculum type

      LONDON INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY

      Some private schools offer International Baccalaureate (IB) programming. The "Diploma Programme" is offered to students in the final two years of high school, while the "Primary Years Programme" (ages 3 to 12) and "Middle Years Programme" (ages 11 to 16) serve as preparation for the diploma program.

      London International Academy (LIA) is certified in accordance with the Ontario Ministry of Education to offer academic courses from grades 9 to 12. LIA is authorized to grant the Ontario Secondary School Diploma to all successful students. An optional program offered at LIA places a strong focus on STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, we also have several clubs with a STEM focus.

      GREENWOOD COLLEGE SCHOOL

      Greenwood's personalized approach to teaching and learning is designed to support and challenge every student. We believe that when students are nurtured as individuals, they build their unique capacity to become confident forward thinkers both inside and outside the classroom. Delivering a personalized program means looking at how the “what, how, when and where” aspects of learning need to change to meet the needs of each individual student. Our teachers take time to understand every student’s unique personality, strengths and learning style. They can then design a fully personalized learning experience that sets up each student for engagement and success.

    GREENWOOD COLLEGE SCHOOL

    Support is dependent upon students’ individual needs. For example, if a student is struggling in one class, support would be given by the classroom teacher. If there is a pattern amongst many classes, the student's Adviser would facilitate a more fulsome intervention. This intervention will involve strategies such as enlisting parent support, supporting the growth of academic and executive functioning skills, and organizing an extra help schedule. Student supports and intervention progressively involve more people as needed. After reviewing a psychoeducational report and seeking parent and teacher input, we may recommend that a student carry a reduced course load so they can access Student Success Centre (SSC) support. Students who do so receive a timetabled period in the SSC where they earn a Learning Strategies credit. Grade 12 students in need of SSC support can enrol in the Transition Skills Program, a non-credit course.

    LONDON INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY

    London International Academy (LIA) is looking for well rounded students with a focus on academics, who wish to continue their studies to post-secondary education. A student will be successful at LIA if they are community minded, a global citizen with respect for individual and cultural differences.

    GREENWOOD COLLEGE SCHOOL

    Greenwood's assessment of student-applicants emphasizes character, personality, academic readiness and interest in personal growth. Among the questions we consider are the following: • Does the applicant have the academic ability to complete the requirements leading to the Ontario Secondary School Diploma? • Do the applicant and their family have values and experience or inclinations that are consistent with Greenwood’s ‘whole person’ approach to education? • Is the applicant involved in the school life of their current school and in extra-curricular activities outside of school, and will they contribute in a positive way to the Greenwood community? • What is the character of the applicant? Is the applicant supportive of others? How has the applicant dealt with previous challenges and opportunities? • Is the applicant academically and otherwise engaged in life? Are they curious, interested in learning and excited about trying new experiences?

    GREENWOOD COLLEGE SCHOOL

    Applying to Greenwood involves the following steps:

    1. Complete the online application
    2. Complete the Character Skills Snapshot (more information below)
    3. Schedule an interview 

    We recommend touring the school prior to your interview. Tours are offered on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 9:15 a.m.

    All applicants are required to complete the Character Skills Snapshot (CSS), administered by the Enrollment Management Association. This online tool examines seven essential character qualities or “non-cognitive” attributes of individual students. Research shows that these qualities are the ones that independent schools feel are most important to nurture in their students. The CSS takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. Learn more about the CSS here.

    Please note that an interview cannot be scheduled until the application is complete. Applications are considered complete when Greenwood has received:

    • At least one teacher recommendation form
    • The results of the applicant's Character Skills Snapshot
