We believe very strongly in the benefits of a solid academic foundation. The program encompasses one-hour classroom learning with a dedicated certified teacher, weekly homework/quizzes, and 3 tests preceded by reviews throughout the school year. Parents will be given status reports on their children’s progress. It is our objective to deliver quality education. Our course material aims at instilling and promoting interest.
Students are taught the skills and techniques of writing and focus is on different types of writing such as 5-paragraph essays, the ins-and-outs of research, how to structure arguments and comparisons, outline and much more. Homework assignments will be given. This course is made up of a large amount of hands-on practice and students develop creative writing skills.
Higher grades are taught critical thinking, reading, and writing skills beyond the standard English program. Emphasis is placed on developing students’ analytical and inferential reasoning skills, and on expanding their strategies for argumentation, using the various genres of literature types as subject matter.
