The children are always encouraged to be their best in every aspect. They do have homework. In-class works. Quizzes, and tests, etc. And both individual and group projects. I think these are all essential for learning. The Teachers would put in extra time for each child if they need more help. I find the teachers are firm but fair. They played a major role to build a solid foundation for my children’s first few years of their learning skills and consequently set up their positive learning habits. The academic program at Trinity Montessori is very adequate for my children’s lives in high school, university and beyond. They are who they are today because of that. I could not have asked for more.
The academic excellence at Trinity Montessori School surpassed our expectations. We are particularly happy that the school is an accredited Montessori school formally recognized by the Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators. Besides the typical Montessori curriculum, Trinity also has a strong focus on creative writing, reading, mathematics and French. When our daughter graduated from SK, she was at a Grade 2-3 level for her English language and math skills. Through the school's daily reader program, she has developed a habit of reading on her own - a habit that she has kept until this day. One point that future parents may need to take into consideration is that because the academic level at Trinity is more advanced, students who are transitioning to a public school system for Grade 1 may already be familiar with a lot of the concepts taught. Overall, Trinity Montessori School has done an excellent job in cultivating a fun, challenging and stimulating academic environment.
