I have always felt that CHS is the equivalent to the higher level of schooling found in special schools in other provinces where high achievers are sent. Our connection and opportunities with Briercrest College and their faculty provides a unique setting that raises the bar. Our teachers ARE passionate about their subjects and want to convey that to their students. My kids didn't always catch the passion, but definitely recognized it in their teachers, and were impressed by it. Our online course management system is used inconsistently across the teacher group and therefore not used to its fullest potential. Some teachers use it to include all upcoming assignments with due dates right at the start of the semester - providing a tool whereby students and parents can plan ahead. Other instructors only put this information into the system after the due date has passed and they are preparing to enter the marks of the completed assignments. Some are reluctant to use due dates at all, because they allow this date to float quite a bit. The inconsistency has caused frustration for some of our kids, and complacency in others about what is expected in the school work. Our kids who were up to the challenge, chose to take college level courses during their high school time. This was very enriching. On the other end of the scale, i felt like the term average was overused, and given as a reason to not explore avenues of assistance/limitations that could be provided.
Before my child attended this school the feed back she would give me about many of the teachers was not positive. Now she loves going to school and never says anything negative about the teachers. I'm very happy with the teachers.
The teachers at Caronport High School seem to be very passionate about the subjects they teach. My son enjoys the instructors and the classes at the school. The staff provides parental access to my child's grades, so that we know if there are any issues that need to be addressed.
The instruction at Caronport High School is of high quality. The teachers are caring and go out of their way to help our son succeed. They know about their subject areas and are generally adept at communicating what their requirements are for assignments. Feed back could be more effective. Our son has received the support that he has needed.
We believe that we get our money's worth when it comes to the teaching staff at CHS. We are very happy with the quality of what is taught. The teachers are knowledgeable and provide a wide variety of learning opportunities for our kids. Our children work hard in school and are rewarded with good grades which proves to me that they are being taught concepts well. I appreciated the teachers in Grade 11 (Miss Klip) and 12 (Mrs. Poettcker) who taught my son to write drafts of his papers and gave him feedback after each draft. Mr. Peters and Mrs. Crocker were also mentioned as providing feedback that was helpful. Both my children are challenged in the classroom and the assignments and projects that are given often amaze me in the creative options that are offered.
We were very happy with the quality of instruction. The teachers were passionate about the subjects they taught & were very willing to give extra support & instruction as needed. They learned to think critically rather than be “spoon-fed”.
I believe that my child is being pushed and taught appropriately. Communication could be more but I'm not too concerned. The teachers are wonderful.
Excellent teachers and instruction. Very well prepared for next stage of life and options for challenges with the college being right there.
