 Junior School

As you walk through the doors of the Junior School, you will be greeted by colourful, light-filled spaces and classrooms full of curious, open-minded learners. There, students in our IB Primary Years Program (PYP) — those in Junior Kindergarten through Grade 6 — enjoy the following:
  • Active, engaging classes where teachers know each student well
  • Daily French classes, beginning in JK, featuring the engaging Accelerated Integrative Method (AIM)
  • Challenging hands-on robots programs
  • SMART Board technology in every classroom, access to laptops, and a Design and Technology Centre with touch-screen computers
  • A spacious library
  • A colourful Performing Arts Room
  • A sky-lit Art Studio with a kiln

The Junior School sparks a joy and interest in learning that will stay with a student for life. Caring teachers stimulate natural curiosity. Small classes allow for the personal attention that helps a young girl thrive and develop her self-esteem.

Students follow a curriculum that provides a solid grounding in basic skills and promotes good study habits. From the earliest age, girls learn to express themselves as competent communicators and to develop self-reliance.

Students learn through inquiry-based instruction within a variety of subject disciplines, including English and French, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Art, Music, and Physical Education. All students learn to use technology through hands-on experiences. In Grade 6, an Extended French program is available for those wishing to pursue advanced studies in French in the Middle School.

Assemblies, clans, field trips, guest speakers and "big sisters" from the Senior School enhance the learning experience. Beyond the classroom, a wide variety of clubs and sports provide additional opportunities for friendship, teamwork and leadership.
