    Traditional


     

    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).
     
    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.

     

    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

     
    Montessori
    Montessori programs aimed at preschool and Kindergarten- aged children allow young learners to choose which “tasks” or activities interest them. These tasks centre around special Montessori puzzles -- the essential features of these puzzles being they contain a “right answer” and allow for self-correction. A strong emphasis is therefore placed on learning being concrete and rooted in practical experience, along with children developing a sense of self-sufficiency and confidence. Specially trained teachers act as guides, introducing children to progressively more difficult materials when appropriate. A Montessori classroom is typically very calm and orderly, with children working alone or, sometimes, in small groups.

    Our Take

    Our Take

    UNIONVILLE MONTESSORI PRIVATE SCHOOLS

    Unionville offers everything you would rightly expect from a Montessori education, including casa classrooms and group arts and music instruction, which provide opportunities for hands-on learning and the development of natural peer and mentor relationships. The program also builds from that foundation, including a significant and enthusiastic adoption of in-class technology. That aspect of the school is integrated nicely within with more traditional aspects of the method, becoming a natural extension of the approach that Maria Montessori described a century ago. The school is larger than we might initially expect of a Montessori program, though the benefits of size include a breadth of curricular and extra-curricular programming. Families that enroll here are those that prize the Montessori approach, though are also looking for something more. Indeed, that’s exactly what they find.

    Message

    At Unionville Montessori School (UMS), we believe in providing a full and rich learning experience for all of our students. 

    Our Montessori roots are evident in our "Pre-Casa" and "Casa" programmes for students aged two to six years. These younger children are provided with the best of traditional Montessori education, which is proven to foster early academic development. They also experience more modern programmes in technology, such as coding, and other specialist disciplines which complement and support the Montessori base, providing our students with a truly outstanding early educational experience. 

    Our Elementary school programme further nurtures each child's potential by providing students with rigorous academics at a full grade level ahead in core academic subjects. Technology plays a key role in the facilitation of this – SmartBoard technology is available in every classroom. UMS students also participate in a fully supported iPad program, in which applications or apps are used to enhance learning. Students in grades 1 to 5 have access to iPads, and every student in grade 6 to 8 has an individual school-issued iPad that is pre-loaded with educational applications. Extra-curricular activities are also integral to the UMS experience.  Students access our state-of-the-art auditorium for enriched and comprehensive arts education including vocal and instrumental music, visual art and drama. We also support a full athletics program and multiple opportunities for community service. However, the best part of UMS is still undoubtedly our community: a talented and dedicated faculty, supportive and committed parents and, of course, a very enthusiastic student body! 

    We thank you for your interest in UMS and invite you to contact us to arrange a tour and to meet some of the members of our very unique and special family. 

     

    Dear Students and Parents:

    Welcome to Innunco Academy. It is truly a pleasure to see you here. Innunco Academy is honored to be working with students and parents of the community.

    We allow all students greater flexibility and choice in completing the requirements for the Ontario Secondary School Diploma. Innunco provides students with additional options for learning, alternative formats for delivery of courses to meet student needs and develop the skills needed to succeed at the post-secondary level or in industry. By combining on-campus and online learning together, We aim to create an environment for our students to critically think, problem-solve, and inspire others. We help students to overcome challenges, develop personal goals and strive to achieve them.

    Our purpose is to educate youths to become the leaders of tomorrow. Our responsibility as educators is to prepare and guide the next generation. We believe that every student is different in their abilities to adapt and learn. Our teachers and staff will prepare students with the skills and knowledge for future success.

      Our Take: primary curriculum type

      UNIONVILLE MONTESSORI PRIVATE SCHOOLS

      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.

      UNIONVILLE MONTESSORI PRIVATE SCHOOLS

      Particularly popular in the younger grades (preschool to elementary), but sometimes available all the way up to high school, Montessori schools offer an alternative vision to the standard lesson format of most classrooms. Instead of listening to whole-class lessons, Montessori classrooms allow students to choose which "tasks" or activities interest them. These tasks centre around special Montessori puzzles - their essential feature being they contain a right answer and allow for selfcorrection. A strong emphasis is therefore placed on lessons being concrete and rooted in practical experience, along with students developing a sense of self-sufficiency, confidence and curiosity.

        For the past 11 years, UMS students have surpassed achievement expectations for every grade in mathematics, as measured by the CAT-4 Canadian Achievement Test and reported by Psychometrics Canada Ltd. In 2015, our grade 7 and 8 students participated in the Gauss Contest, set by the Centre for Education at the University of Waterloo. Nearly one-quarter of our contest participants earned scores of 89% or higher. For the Canadian National Mathematics League, set by the University of Windsor, our grade 6 and 7 students placed second and third, respectively, nationally. Five of our students earned spots in the top twenty students nationwide. Overall, our grade 6 and 7 students earned second place out of more than 200 schools, and our grade 8 students finished 13th out of 164 participating schools.

        INNUNCO ACADEMY

        Innunco combines Online and On-Campus learning to improve students their study efficiency. The following approaches are used in math teaching: ·Inquiry Teaching - The teacher presents a problem then the learners identify it. ·Demonstration Approach - The teacher engages “in a learning task other than just talking about it”. ·Discovery Learning - Both the teacher and the learner play active roles in discovery learning. ·Mathematics Laboratory Approach - Students in small groups work through an assignment/task card, learn and discover mathematics for themselves. ·Individualized Instruction - Learners are able to progress by mastering steps through the curriculum at his/her own rate and independently of the progress of other students. ·Brainstorming - The teacher elicits from the learners as many ideas as possible but refrains from evaluating them until all possible ideas have been generated. ·Etc.

        The Unionville Montessori School Elementary program continues the intensive early reading program in which students are immersed in the Casa program. Using dynamic classroom resources and learning tools, our teachers create benchmark reading levels and monitor individual progress. Printable books, or projected interactive books on the Smartboard, are supplemented with worksheets and activity-based lessons, along with a host of interactive resources and develop key reading skills. These resources include Headsprout, Learning A - Z and Raz Kids. Levelled books ensure success in the classroom with developmentally appropriate books at 27 different reading levels. Students as early as grade 1 are encouraged to use iPad apps to supplement the text-based reading programs, and improve learning with the addition of colour, images, graphics and games. The balanced literacy program emphasizes the instruction of grammar and vocabulary in the context of a narrative or text, as well as a phonetic approach.

Our advanced academic program for the early grades is founded upon a personalized approach to learning. Programs are individually placed, and a resource teacher is available to support children who are developing writing skills. Students grade 3 and up study novels and write answers to comprehension questions based on the text. Students in the higher grades study grammar and vocabulary using interactive, online software and workbooks. They are also are instructed in essay writing and speech writing to prepare for our annual Speech Festival. Many students in grade 8 are reading and writing at a level that is suited for an advanced academic course in a high-school setting. All students in need of resource support receive individualized instruction as needed.

        What the school says about their science program

        UNIONVILLE MONTESSORI PRIVATE SCHOOLS

        Science is a vital curriculum area at Unionville Montessori School, where students from grades 1 to 8 have access to a fully-equipped, top-tier science lab. In the lab, and in classes, students in primary, junior and intermediate levels experience science through inquiry-based learning, where they can understand the scientific facts, theories and concepts through hands-on experiments and activities. Students at UMS receive more instruction in math and science than the norm, as part of the school-wide focus on an integrated, cross-curricular STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) focus. Students who excel in science develop a strong ability to think critically, and a talent for creative thought and excellent communication and collaborative skills.

        INNUNCO ACADEMY

        ·Innunco combines Online and On-Campus learning to improve students their study efficiency. The following approaches are used in science teaching: ·Best-evidence synthesis - Aims to improve on current research synthesis by combining the benefits of quantitative analysis and traditional narrative reviews. ·Cooperative learning - This approach targets the integration of academic and social learning experiences into the lesson plan. Students work in groups to complete tasks that are presented by teachers. ·Quantitative research synthesis - Relies on the analysis of numerical data. Quantitative techniques facilitate the comparison and generalization of research results across similar phenomena. ·Technical approaches - Integrate video and computer resources with science instruction and cooperative learning. ·Inquiry-based learning - Offers students an opportunity to ask questions, investigate issues, select methods, and solve problems that have been posed to them by the teacher. The process is based on problem-solving as a way to enhance motivation and learning.

        UMS pupils work at a grade-ahead level in Language Arts. Students in the primary grades work with concepts such as the elements of narratives, the features of various literary genres such as the "legend," or "fable," and grasp abstract concepts such as the main character or hero. Beginning in grade 3, students complete a novel study, wherein they are encouraged to make inferences and to prove their argument in traditional literary critique form. Senior students work with complex texts from various cultures and time periods, and are encouraged to explore fundamental themes and to apply literary terms. In grades 1 to 8, literary study is founded upon our character education program whereby students are encouraged to reflect upon honesty, self-discipline, integrity and personal responsibility, and to explore their own values and the values and the customs of diverse cultures.

        Social Studies for grades 1 to 6 takes a thematic approach and encourages depth and breadth through independent study projects on various topics and themes. Our UMS curriculum highlights Canadian geography and history for grades 1 to 6, but also extends and enriches those topics with a global view and context. Teachers plan tangential learning activities and challenges, and also incorporate the use of SMART Boards, media-based resources and iPads to teach both process and content. Social Studies often leads to research projects and learning that emphasizes higher-order thinking. In addition, students in grades 5 to 8 participate in annual class trips to destinations that reinforce classroom learning, including Niagara Falls, Ottawa and Quebec. UMS also frequently sponsors school trips to destinations in the United States, such as New York City, and in Europe, with a bi-annual trip to Paris, France.

        UNIONVILLE MONTESSORI PRIVATE SCHOOLS

        Students are UMS are progressively introduced to French vocabulary beginning as early as age 2, in our Pre-Casa and Casa program. Formal instruction in French begins in grade 1, giving elementary students several years of head start in French. During French lessons, students learn vocabulary and develop conversational skills, using a fun and interactive approach involving stories, props, music, games and activities. The main resource for French instruction is AIM -- Accelerative Integrated Method -- a system which uses hand gestures to represent and mimic sounds and words. This is a popular movement-based approach to learning that is especially helpful for active, high-energy students that enjoy expressing themselves through large-muscle movement (kinaesthetic learning).

        INNUNCO ACADEMY

        Innunco combines Online and On-Campus learning to improve students their study efficiency. The following approaches are used in Foreign Language teaching: ·Audio-lingual Model - Relies on students listening to, repeating, and even memorizing dialogues and short statements in the target language. ·Communicative Approach - Focuses on getting students to communicate orally and in writing—in real-life scenarios in the target language. All four skills are emphasized with the communicative approach: reading, writing, listening and speaking. ·Direct Instruction - Based on the idea that students acquire a second language much in the way that they learned their native language—through total immersion. Listening and speaking are the top teaching priority. ·Grammar-Translation Model - Learning grammar through comparisons. This model is generally focused on reading and writing, and oral communication skills are deemphasized.

        One of the emerging trends has been the introduction of advanced technological resources within the classroom. UMS has embraced this idea and is proactively taking a measured approach towards incorporating innovative methods of learning, changing the face of the classroom environment. Our mandate, “Excellence in Education,” is the driving force behind this initiative. Education must be forward-leaning, recognizing that the “real world” for which students are being prepared is dynamic, with exponential changes especially in technology. Innovation is at the forefront of our priorities, in order to give your child the necessary skills to grow as a lifelong learner.

        INNUNCO ACADEMY

        Innunco, as an Online and On-Campus school, combines both hands-off and hands-on strategies. We use the provincial high school computer science model curriculum, analyze potential learning difficulties and adjust teaching for students with different needs. The student will be required to use their own computers, or come to our offline teaching center to finish after class practice, assignment, or projects. Innunco implements a variety of methods in the teaching process, including meaningful learning, collaborative learning, inquiry learning, and etc. We developed constructivist, authentic activities to engage students to learn computer science, from hands-on coding to hands-off web design, and create a supportive and active learning environment for students. Innunco establishes a bank of resources for teaching computer science online, including possible materials, lab assignments, class activities, and websites.

        Regular exercise is essential to children’s overall health and positive development. Students participate in formal Physical Education classes with trained teachers, as well as in a wide variety of intramural and competitive sports teams. Our competitive teams compete against other local schools. Physical Education classes follow the Ontario Health and Physical Education Association curriculum. In these classes, not only do the students have the opportunity to be physically active while learning important skills, but they also work on developing their self-esteem, learn about good sportsmanship, and develop positive exercise habits while having a great deal of fun. Our Elementary programme also offers students many sports teams, such as basketball, volleyball, golf, swimming, soccer, cross country, floor hockey, and many more.

      Our Take

      Our Take

      UNIONVILLE MONTESSORI PRIVATE SCHOOLS

      Montessori programs aimed at preschool and Kindergarten- aged children allow young learners to choose which “tasks” or activities interest them. These tasks centre around special Montessori puzzles -- the essential features of these puzzles being they contain a “right answer” and allow for self-correction. A strong emphasis is therefore placed on learning being concrete and rooted in practical experience, along with children developing a sense of self-sufficiency and confidence. Specially trained teachers act as guides, introducing children to progressively more difficult materials when appropriate. A Montessori classroom is typically very calm and orderly, with children working alone or, sometimes, in small groups.

      Our Take

      UNIONVILLE MONTESSORI PRIVATE SCHOOLS

      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).

      INNUNCO ACADEMY

      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.

      Our Take

      Our Take

      UNIONVILLE MONTESSORI PRIVATE SCHOOLS

      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”.

      INNUNCO ACADEMY

      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.

    Students in a Montessori classroom learn at their own pace following an individualized programme. This type of environment naturally provides accommodation for students who may have difficulties with some areas of learning as students are able to move at their own pace through the curriculum with the support and guidance of our specially trained teachers. Activities and materials that students can manipulate hands-on before moving to more abstract learning, encourage children to develop a more thorough understanding of what they are learning, encouraging greater success.
