    Curriculum pace

     
    Accelerated
    The main curriculum accelerates beyond the pace of the provincial one; ALL students do the work of OLDER public-school peers in tangible and measurable ways. This accelerated pace is maintained by the teachers and school, (through textbook selection, topic selection, grading, assignment standards and expectations, etc).
     
    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”.

    Preschool/K curriculum

     
    Play-based
    Play-based programs are the most common type of preschool and Kindergarten, and are founded on the belief young children learn best through play. Largely open-ended and minimally structured, play-based programs aim to develop social skills and a love of attending school. “Pre-academic” skills are taught, but in a more indirect way than at, say, an Academic program: through children playing in different “stations” set up around the classroom, which children choose on their own volition. Stations often contain an indirect lesson or developmental goal. Play-based classrooms are highly social and active.

    The Our Kids Review

    The Our Kids Review

    MEADOWRIDGE SCHOOL

    Meadowridge is a school that intends to inspire and teach through direct, personal involvement. They don't just teach art, for example, they immerse students within it, including an on-site collection of works from an a-list of Canadian artists, including Tom Thomson, Kenojuak Ashevak, and Lawren Harris. The campus includes a forest, so the links between art and the environment are profound. Likewise, gardens and greenhouses provide an entrée to ecology and biology, and a design lab provides an entrée into technology and engineering. Those, and other examples, provide a unique balance between traditional learning and experiential learning. The buildings, the 27-acre campus, the proximity to Vancouver as well as a range of natural environments—all of it would rightly be the envy of any school. The ideal student is one who is curious, engaging, and prone to make use of the range of programs and opportunities that Meadowridge provides.

    ROCKWAY MENNONITE COLLEGIATE

    In some ways, Rockway was born out of a pacifist impulse, established by Swiss Mennonites who were concerned about the military tenor that seeped into the public school system leading up to and during WWII. Times of course have changed, though the foundational principles remain, as well as the values that lay behind them: compassion, understanding, and an open mind to the experiences and perspectives of others. If all you knew about the school was its name, a closer look would reveal a lot of surprises. The school has a robust international program, welcoming students from around the world as well as an extensive exchange program. The curriculum is taught through a Mennonite lens, while also partnering with a local Muslim school, and creating regular opportunities for students to interact with local Jewish, Hindu, and Sikh communities. It’s a unique school, to be sure, which is exactly why families, both within and without the Mennonite community, enroll their children here.

    Message

    Often, we have people tour our school, thinking about investing in an education for their children. Such tours are conducted by our student ambassadors, and we often receive comments about how direct, polite, thoughtful, and friendly they are. Most parents want their children to be just like the students who conducted the tour. It is our best guide to how others see us: their delight in meeting our students.

    The students behave the way they do, of course, because families and the school share values, because we come to know each other, because we insist on similar things, because we stay involved with each other, and because virtually everyone here is noticed and is important. We are attached, all of us: old and young, students, teachers, parents, and staff, joined in the common cause of education that will make a difference to our children, and a difference to the world they will inherit and will lead.

    Our Mission Statement: Learning to live well, with others and for others, in a just community.

    We have a community of concern, and one that will help our children to grow into fine young adults. It is a pleasure to watch my children grow up within this fine community, and I know I share this pleasure with the parents of all of our students from Junior Kindergarten through to Grade 12.

     

    Dear Parents,

    Thank you for considering Rockway Mennonite Collegiate ~ I believe that we offer one of the best overall middle and secondary school experiences available in our region, with opportunities for personal growth and learning that are unique to our school community. If you visit Rockway, interact with our students, meet our teachers, talk with our alumni and read our materials, I am confident you will reach the same conclusion. This is an exceptional place of learning where faculty and staff are committed to educating and developing young people who respect and value themselves, and who understand their role as contributing citizens of our far-reaching community.

    Rockway is, first and foremost, an outstanding school with a rigorous academic program. More than ninety percent of our students go on to universities and colleges in their program of choice. More than half our graduates last year were Ontario Scholars. We offer an enriched program in small classes, designed to reach students of diverse learning styles, taught by a remarkable team of dedicated and gifted teachers. Our students are deeply involved in the life of our school, its activities, and its engagement with the wider community. As you will see throughout this website, our small size is a huge asset, and it offers us great flexibility in developing and delivering a rich, creative program that addresses the academic, social, athletic, artistic and spiritual needs of our student body in an affirming learning environment.

    Rockway is a Mennonite school, and approximately half our students have personal connections to that faith tradition. Ours is a religious tradition concerned with putting its values into action through service and peacemaking, with an awareness of our obligations to one another in community, and to discerning together what makes for a just and compassionate world. We welcome students from diverse backgrounds and appreciate the richness that this diversity brings to our classrooms and our school.

    Rockway offers its students a wide array of leadership development opportunities, and our experience is clear: Rockway students graduate ready to pursue their dreams, eager to make a difference, and prepared for life’s challenges. If you have any questions about what Rockway has to offer your child, please contact us.

      Our Take: primary curriculum type

      Our Take: primary curriculum type

      MEADOWRIDGE 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.

      ROCKWAY MENNONITE COLLEGIATE

      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.


      Our Take: secondary curriculum type

      Our Take: secondary curriculum type

      MEADOWRIDGE SCHOOL

      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.

      MEADOWRIDGE SCHOOL

      At Meadowridge our Mission, "learning to live well, with others and for others, in a just community" is woven into our everyday actions and interactions, both at the school and in the community at large. It acknowledges the importance of positive interactions with others and in seeking to better the community as we better ourselves. It looks beyond gender, nationality, culture and class. It guides staff, administration, students, and families to meet responsibilities and fulfill dreams. This atmosphere of respect combined with a challenging and enriched curriculum provides many opportunities for students to excel in the core academic subjects of reading, writing, math, science and areas of creative expression and original thought, such as performing and visual arts, athletics, clubs, computer science and drama - all of which foster a strong sense of personal and community pride and cause for celebration. We believe in the importance of celebrating our students’ individual and collective accomplishments as we strive for their highest level of performance, whatever their stage of development.

      ROCKWAY MENNONITE COLLEGIATE

      Rockway Mennonite Collegiate forms faith and builds character in an academic environment for students who work hard, respect the values of the community, and are open to guidance and instruction that will enable them to become responsible, globally minded, compassionate and reflective citizens of our community and world. Families of Rockway students commit themselves to collaborative relationships between home and school that foster the best possible learning outcomes. Students who thrive at Rockway immerse themselves in our rich and diverse range of academic and extracurricular opportunities, and make positive contributions to the classroom, sports, chapel and the arts.

        Our take: math approach type

        Our take: math approach type

        MEADOWRIDGE SCHOOL

        Discovery Math turns traditional math on its head: it frequently begins by introducing a novel problem to students, and works its way back to “discovering” a method of solving the problem. The goal is to ground mathematical procedures and algorithms firmly in their applications, and to challenge students to think critically about how they might go about solving the problem right from the beginning. Generally associated with the “Chicago Math” movement and related Everyday Math textbooks (Grades 1 to 6), Discovery math spends less classroom time mastering established algorithms and more time getting students invested in and thinking critically about novel mathematical problems and concepts. In this sense Discovery Math aims to establish conceptual and applied understand before procedural understanding.

        ROCKWAY MENNONITE COLLEGIATE

        These math programs feature an equal balance of “Traditional” and “Discovery” methods.

        Rockway offers a full slate of academic and applied course options as set out by the ministry of education for Ontario. At the present time we do not offer the college technology math courses. The students are exposed to a variety of learning opportunities within the courses as well as the opportunity to participate in a variety of contests. A combination of direct instruction and inquiry based learning are used in all of the courses. In the grades 9 and 10 courses we have employed the use of video to provide the content and have the students do the practice in class in the presence of their teacher. This allows the student to move at a pace that is appropriate to their individual needs. Students who successfully complete an academic program of studies in Mathematics at Rockway are well prepared for the expectations of university and college mathematics programs.

        Our take: science approach type

        Our take: science approach type

        MEADOWRIDGE SCHOOL

        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.

        ROCKWAY MENNONITE COLLEGIATE

        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.

        Students at Rockway have the opportunity to study biology, physics, chemistry and environmental science. Rockway science courses are based on the Ontario Science Curriculum. These courses are taught through exploration of scientific theory and application. This is accomplished with a balance of inquiry-based investigations and teacher-led activities to build a solid foundation in scientific theory. Through the study of science at Rockway, students are challenged to relate science to technology, society and the environment, as well as to foster habits required for scientific inquiry in university and beyond. Rockway has collaborated with local universities to expose students to post-secondary opportunities in science. Rockway students in grades 11 and 12 have the opportunity to explore biology and environmental science through our Costa Rica Eco-Adventure where students learn about the unique forest and marine ecosystems in a tropical climate.

        The English curriculum is dedicated to developing strong, core competencies in listening, speaking, reading, writing, viewing and representing. It integrates studies in literature (all genres from various periods) with communication (written structures and oral expression of learning) as well as functional language studies. Much of our English curriculum is literature based, meaning that our teaching and exploration of the skills of the English discipline are centred around and spring from the study of carefully selected classic and modern complete works of literature, including Canadian, Canadian Indigenous, American, British and international authors. In addition to the intensive study of literature, we include independent study of novels selected by students, with guidance and the study of poetry. Rockway’s library has an extensive, vital and up to date collection of literature and we promote a reading culture by initiating programs to help students select good works to read independently.

        All students must take Grade 9 Geography (Canadian) and Grade 10 History (20th Century Canadian). In the senior years, there is a wide variety of courses from which they may choose. They include: World Religions (Gr. 11), Ancient History (Gr. 11), Media Studies (Gr. 11), Introduction to Social Science (Gr. 11), Society, Challenge and Change (Gr. 12), World Issues (Gr. 12), Philosophy 12 (Gr. 12), World History: 1500-Present (Gr. 12). Through this wide offering of courses, students learn a lot about their world and their place in it. They will learn to consider a variety of worldviews, to set aside their own ideas for a brief period of time, and consider the world and its history from multiple perspectives. This helps prepare them to engage our contemporary world. Through these courses, students also refine their reading, writing and critical-thinking skills in preparation for life and the next level of education.

        Students at Rockway have opportunity to study two principal second-languages: French in grades 7-12 and German in grades 10-12. These programs provide for a balanced development of skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing within the framework of the audio-lingual and communicative styles of language instruction. Second-language learning at Rockway is a unique discipline in that it naturally integrates the development of academic skills, attitudes of openness and respect, and marketable career skills. Through the study of French, students gain an understanding of and appreciation for a pan-Canadian scope - a mutual understanding among both language groups in our officially bilingual country. Exchange: Students in grades 11 and 12 have the exceptional opportunity to participate in the language-based Rockway/Weierhof Exchange program. This 17 day exchange greatly enhances the students’ cultural understanding, fluency and comprehension in the target languages.

        What the school says about their fine arts program

        MEADOWRIDGE SCHOOL

        Students learn through creative expression: they learn to understand and to analyze, to problem solve and to self-express, and they learn about themselves and about the world around them. So while they strum, or stroke, or sing, or sculpt, they learn a new way to express themselves and to convey feelings; students learn to become active meaning-makers, not passive recipients. By learning from the entire symbolic range, students evolve as both artist and learner of the arts. Through language and art, dance and movement, photography, film and multimedia, students learn to understand the essence of things – of people, culture, art, business, sciences, politics – and the nuances within them.

        MEADOWRIDGE SCHOOL

        At Meadowridge, we teach our students to acquire, use, and share information in multiple forms and ways so that it becomes meaningful knowledge. When it comes to technology, every decision we make is based on learning, and that’s because technology cannot replace outstanding teaching or collaboration with other learners. We make sure that our school and our students control technology, and are not controlled by it.

        ROCKWAY MENNONITE COLLEGIATE

        While technology is integrated into all of our course work, Rockway\'s Computer Studies courses provide a distinct opportunity for students to explore modern digital technology and its application with an in-depth focus. To meet the needs of a diverse student body, our courses are balanced between business applications, communication technology and computer programming. Students from grades 7 - 12 are challenged to work across multiple platforms and languages, with a range of current computer applications. Courses aim to balance hands-on hardware exploration with more conceptual problem solving skill building. As a school that values community, we regularly examine ethical considerations around technology and are intentional about prioritizing face-to-face relationships despite offering a high-tech learning environment.

        MEADOWRIDGE SCHOOL

        In Physical and Health Education, students learn to appreciate the value of physical activity and develop the motivation for making healthy life choices. PHE is taught so that students learn about and learn through physical activity. Students develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes which contribute to a healthy and balanced lifestyle: a balanced lifestyle which includes a healthy body, mind, and spirit. PHE is a critical element of a well-rounded learner. All students in the PYP and MYP participate in PHE, and have additional requirements for physical and activity outside of their courses.

        ROCKWAY MENNONITE COLLEGIATE

        Students at Rockway have significant activity time built into the school day. Grades 7&8 have 210 minutes per week of physical education, while grade 9’s have 215 minutes per week. Grade 10\'s have the opportunity to take physical education all year on an alternating daily basis (175 min/week). These courses include livefit, powerfit, and regular classes. Gr 11 is a semestered lifestyle activity course while gr 12 is a science based kinesiology course with a significant fitness component. Courses are structured to support interschool athletics with active movement units preparing students to tryout for school teams. This supports physical literacy and skill development while increasing confidence to participate in extracurricular activities. Health is taught from a lifelong, inter-relational, balanced, and overall perspective. We begin with mental wellness as a core and examine how it relates to fitness, nutrition, safety, sexuality, growth and development, substance use and abuse, sleep and community.

      Our Take

      Our Take

      MEADOWRIDGE SCHOOL

      Play-based programs are the most common type of preschool and Kindergarten, and are founded on the belief young children learn best through play. Largely open-ended and minimally structured, play-based programs aim to develop social skills and a love of attending school. “Pre-academic” skills are taught, but in a more indirect way than at, say, an Academic program: through children playing in different “stations” set up around the classroom, which children choose on their own volition. Stations often contain an indirect lesson or developmental goal. Play-based classrooms are highly social and active.

      MEADOWRIDGE SCHOOL

      Meadowridge’s Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten programs provide developmentally-appropriate learning opportunities for children to explore, socialize and grow in a safe and supportive environment. This takes place in a brand new, purpose built Early Childhood Education building. Children are active learners. In Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten children learn by exploration and problem-solving in a safe environment. Students learn through play and units of inquiry based on the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. This includes exploration into science, art, community, literacy, math, dance, athletics, technology, music, and more. Student develop skills through a hands-on activities where they can test, try, and engage.

      Our Take

      MEADOWRIDGE SCHOOL

      The main curriculum accelerates beyond the pace of the provincial one; ALL students do the work of OLDER public-school peers in tangible and measurable ways. This accelerated pace is maintained by the teachers and school, (through textbook selection, topic selection, grading, assignment standards and expectations, etc).

      ROCKWAY MENNONITE COLLEGIATE

      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.

      MEADOWRIDGE SCHOOL

      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 program challenges our students to find out more about their own beliefs, their own bodies, and society. When students graduate, they are equipped to deal with the complex realities of life, where critical thinking is at a premium. There are trained to question: how could this be better? In every unit of instruction, the children have a guiding question which they seek to answer. At the younger grades, the question is generated by the teacher, and smaller questions arise from the students. In older grades, we expect students to generate their own questions, and to personalize their learning.

    MEADOWRIDGE SCHOOL

    A Meadowridge student is one that seeks challenges in order to grow. We are not looking for perfect children, as they don't exist, but children who love to learn and explore the world. Children who are kind, willing to make mistakes and learn from them, and share their knowledge with others. From Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12 our students call Meadowridge home.

Rockway Mennonite Collegiate is for grade 7-12 students of all faith and cultural backgrounds who want to belong to an academic community that thrives within a Mennonite tradition of peaceful conflict resolution.

Families of Rockway students commit themselves to collaborative relationships between home and school that foster the best possible learning outcomes. Students who thrive at Rockway immerse themselves in our rich and diverse range of academic and extracurricular opportunities, and make positive contributions to the classroom, sports, chapel, and the arts.

    MEADOWRIDGE SCHOOL

    Our admissions process is set-up specifically to determine if your child and family are the right fit for Meadowridge. From inquiry to assessment, we strive to get to know each family and the potential of each child.

We offer a rigorous curriculum and have high expectations of our students, not just academically but intellectually and emotionally. We expect them to take our Mission to heart, "Learning to live well, with others and for others, in a just community".
