Senior (11-12)

At this point, students rely upon the Internet for much of their research for school projects, essays, and other learning. Just like adults though, they may be susceptible to picking up misinformation from questionable websites. Even “reputable” websites may be wrong from time to time – the old adage “Don’t believe everything you read” certainly applies in the Information Age. We have reviewed the following links to help increase accuracy of the information presented.

Math & Science

Math and science are two key skills in academics. Not only are they important subjects in themselves, but they help form the basis of the logical mind, which improves their overall learning skills as they get older. These links are to age-appropriate math and science websites.

Cooperative Education

Cooperative Education is an experiential mode of learning, delivered under Ministry of Education and Training guidelines, that integrates academic study and classroom theory with experiences in the workplace. Students divide their time between school and the workplace, spending at least half the day with the employer. While at the workplace, students are provided with challenging responsibilities and learn by doing. This 3-way partnership between the high school student, the business community, and the school combines classroom instruction with practical "on the job" training.

Advanced Placement

The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is a cooperative education endeavour between secondary schools and colleges and universities that allows bright, motivated senior high school students the opportunity to undertake college/university level academic learning while still in secondary school and to receive advanced placement, credit, or both from the thousands of colleges and universities that participate in the AP Program.
