All children can and will learn if they feel valued, respected, and included in their learning community. This belief is at the core of every decision we make at Ashwood Glen. Making a difference in the lives of those we teach is the purpose of education.
Children are naturally curious, and we can enhance their learning by giving them numerous opportunities to explore and investigate the world around them, creatively and innovatively. To empower and engage students, we need to provide a safe learning environment where students can embrace challenges, take positive risks, and develop resilience through our inquiry-based learning. Resiliency is critical in supporting student wellbeing. Ultimately, our vision is to have graduates develop a profile allowing them lead flourishing lives with confidence while making positive impacts in their community.
Ashwood Glen education is rigorous, and guided by set of core values and beliefs that promote equity, inclusivity, and international-mindedness. Our pedagogy reflects the International Baccalaureate approaches to teaching and learning.
