How Blyth Academy The Glebe, Ottawa sees itself
"Blyth Academy The Glebe is a private high school in the heart of Lansdowne Park. We focus on personalized education, small class sizes and strong student support. This unique approach to education has been met with enthusiastic response and success among students and parents. Conveniently located in vibrant The Glebe neighbourhood, the campus is surrounded by shops, art galleries, and parks, with close proximity to the Rideau Canal and TD Place where our student athletes from the Ottawa 67's practice & compete."
"There is no student that gets lost in the crowd or is overlooked in the classroom. Staff quickly make sure they know each student’s learning style and academic needs. Beyond that, the supportive guidance department has an extremely low student to guidance counsellor ratio, ensuring that each individual has as much time as they need to discuss academics or social/personal challenges."
"We keep our class sizes small so students get regular and personalized teacher attention. This helps them feel comfortable asking questions and collaborating with their peers and their teachers. Teachers quickly learn the strengths and weaknesses of their students and are able to tailor their lessons to the various learning styles of their students, and implement accommodations effectively when necessary."
"Students often look at a private school as a formal environment where teachers talk at the students and the students sit, listen and take notes. This could not be further from the truth in our case. While they do get an excellent, enriching education, they do so in a relaxed environment where they learn while engaging with peers and teachers, having fun, participating in school clubs and school-wide events. All this leads to a feeling of belonging which aids in their overall academic success."
"The level of flexibility that we can provide with our four-term structure and our various course delivery options ensures that we are able to accommodate most schedules and academic requirements. Students can be in a classroom with 10 others during first period, followed by a private course where they benefit fully from the attention of their private teacher. Students study only two courses per term intensively without the distraction of multiple teachers, transitions and assignments daily."
