The academics at Fieldstone are amazing, they even have the Cambridge program which is unique to them! Through the Cambridge program I was able to complete additional testing, and as a student, receiving my exams back allowed me to feel proud of the work and effort I put into these exams! In the Cambridge program I took part in the English and Drama testing. Through this I was able to work closely with my teachers and peers to prepare for the exam, and I enjoyed every minute of it! Even now, I use my completion of my Cambridge testing under the achievements heading on my resume! I hold the Cambridge curriculum to a high standard, and I am proud to say that I completed it!
Academically, the Cambridge program definitely provided me with an astute academic challenge, being an alternative that can be taken alongside the OSSD. Personally, given that I had already gone through half of my A-levels, I found the OSSD quite easy to handle, and so I would say that maybe for me the OSSD was not entirely challenging. However, the school did try their best to create a cohesive and conducive learning environment, encouraging students to challenge themselves through participating in contests and taking Cambridge exams. This provided an element of competitiveness, and students wanted to try their best to succeed. One thing I'll always be thankful for was that platform, because it prepared me well for university, due to the extra work that I had to put in.
One of the strengths at Fieldstone is the Cambridge program. It is how the school encourages its students to strive for better and gives them the opportunity to challenge themselves. This program gives the students a chance to focus on the subjects that they see themselves pursuing in post-secondary, and that they are interested in. There are also regular tutorials that students are encouraged to attend whether they need extra help or if they would like to ensure a better grade on an assignment. In grade 12, there was a program to help teach all the students in their final year how to read a journal. This was really informative because in university, we have a lot of readings from academic papers, such as journals.
