Academic Process

Enrollment Procedure for school year

Students have to fill the registration form and pay the appropriate fees as detailed in the registration form and agree to abide by the school code of conduct.

Academic Evaluation

Students will undergo academic evaluation for appropriate grade-level curriculum. Assistant teacher will be in the classroom, on a full time basis, to help the main teacher managing the expected difference in language proficiency within the same class.

Volunteer Services

In order to have greater involvement from the families, we encourage each family to perform one day volunteer service for the school. Any person wishing to offer his/her time and/or services is invited to contact the administration.

All students are expected to be well groomed and clean; fingernails and hair must be kept short and clean.

Attendance

Students should only be absent from school in case of illness, unusual family difficulties, or emergencies. Students are expected to attend classes regularly, so that they may reap the optimal benefit. The interaction and instruction that take place in the classroom are equally as valuable as written assignments. In case of absence, parents should send a signed written note with their children for next week class stating the reason of absence. Make-up assignments should be obtained from other students in the class during the week and submitted at the same time as other students. Please note Peel District School Board has their own regulation of the number of the absences permitted for the weekend school.
