    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”.
     
    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.

    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.
     
    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.

    Our Take

    Our Take

    ST. MILDRED'S-LIGHTBOURN SCHOOL

    The school has a long history, having been founded in Toronto 1891. After a move to Oakville, it later paired with a school guided by Ruth Lightbourn, a renowned teacher who founded a school almost by default—she began as a tutor for the children of John Guest, then headmaster of Appleby College, and her success was of the kind we associate with Nanny McPhee. She became the go-to tutor, and in time founded her own school. That and St. Mildred's formally joined in 1969, combining the traditions and the drive of both under one umbrella. More than anything, the intention is to provide girls with the skills, experience, and esteem that will carry over into academic and professional success. Ample opportunities are provided for students to discover their passions, wherever they may lie, as well as the encouragement to grow within those areas of interest.

    ST. GEORGE'S SCHOOL OF MONTREAL

    St. George's was founded in 1930 by a group of parents who wanted something different for their children, namely an education that was less based in rote learning and more based in experience and respect for the individual learners. Then, as now, the students didn't wear uniforms, and lessons were learned experientially, through hands-on lived experience. Students take part in projects and programs with students throughout the school, not only their immediate age mates. Students are encouraged to follow the paths of their curiosity, and then given the latitude and the resources in order to do so. That said, there is a structure, too, and the academic program has, throughout the life of the school, proved itself through real, observable results.

    Every school aspires to provide the knowledge and skills that are required to transform their students into accomplished and confident adults. To a great extent, this transformation is accomplished by the timely and caring interventions of their teachers. 
    At St. George’s, we believe that our programs provide appropriate challenges and engagement, even as students begin their first years of learning. To fulfill this promise, we offer differentiated approaches and programs in all core disciplines. As our students mature and gain confidence, our curriculum offers additional challenges through enriched, accelerated, and ‘Advance Placement’ classes. Students are offered a rich assortment of options so that they may experience new and exciting domains of development in areas such as Marine Biology, Engineering, Psychology and Media, as well as the opportunity to pursue co-curricular options such as Biomimicry, Jazz Band, Glee, Stage Crew, Robotics and Debating.

    At St. George’s, we believe that education is best served by establishing a deep and authentic relationship with each student, as a confirmation of our unwavering belief in each child’s unique passions and aspirations. We see our role as enablers, unleashing the amazing talents that lie within each child. To provide a fertile terrain for personal and academic growth,  this process requires trust and validation from peers and adults.

    We believe that teaching is an intuitive art that is further enhanced through our greater understanding of each learner’s character, and the development of their self-awareness, their empathy for others, their perseverance and their sense of optimism- all of which provide the foundation for an enriching life. At St. George’s, we measure our success by the degree of our students’ aspirations to lead a fulfilled life.

    We believe that education is a real-time experience and that it happens best through real-life inquiries and projects where each student becomes an agent for change, both locally and amongst extended communities, and where the exploration of one’s true self becomes a profound and rewarding process. We also believe that as our students discover themselves, and as they explore the world around them, their ability to make sense, to create, to self-regulate and to become solid life-long learners and transformation leaders will naturally follow. 

    Based on the child-centered approach of John Dewey, St. George’s School of Montreal was founded in 1930 by an enlightened group of progressive parents and educators from Sir George Williams (Concordia) and McGill Universities.  Our commitment to the individual growth and development of each child continues to the present day. We are always pleased to welcome prospective parents who wish to learn more as to how our unique, time-tested approach supports each child on a personal and academic level.
