How does support work in Upper School?

In the Upper School, student support begins with our small advisory groups and extends to the watchful eyes of subject-specific classroom teachers. A specific study skills curriculum in grade six, followed by ongoing teaching of organizational skills in grades seven and eight, help all students internalize effective habits.

For students whose learning plans include additional support, we provide a combination of approaches. Often, such students receive a combination of small group and individual instruction in place of learning a foreign language. If the required support is more extensive, we make every reasonable attempt to meet these needs within the schedule.
