I appreciate the IB program and never had really understood how the program worked. It encompasses the IB learner traits which simply means that all children work on and incorporate into their daily learning to be lifelong learners. They learn to be communicators, knowledgeable, inquirers, thinkers, principled with integrity, open minded, caring, reflective, balanced, risk takers. The culture of the IB learner profile is reviewed daily during morning assemblies and during the school day. My children came from the public system and I had noticed that over the course of just a few months they were speaking with more maturity and aware and owning their responsibilities at school. My children have excelled this year and I feel it has much to do with the close attention they receive in their small class of 14 and the IB program. It has made the world of difference coming from a class of 30 to a class of 14. The kids are enjoying their success.

I feel the Academics at Delano are very strong. As an IB School Candidate, the students truly have a very rich academic life. They are always encouraged to think and inquire, they are not simply given answers to questions, but rather encouraged and coached to think thru a problem or situation and come up with possible solutions, by using their skills and mentoring. A good portion of the curriculum is hand's on, very practical. Students are often working on several projects at a time and with that, they also develop and refine time management skills. Reading in both Official Languages is very much encouraged at the School and students regularly take books home from the Library to read and add on to their knowledge and expand their vocabulary.

I absolutely think that Delano Academy will successfully prepare my kids for their next step in life. They are constantly being encouraged and pushed to achieve higher. The academic culture in Delano is customized/tailored learning. The teachers observe the strength and weaknesses of each kid, so as to help them overcome obstacles, as well as extending their strength further. Teamwork is strongly encouraged. Throughout the year, there are numerous events and class assignments that involve teamwork and creative thinking. Kids are encouraged to think outside the box. The use of technology is also encouraged in a proper manner with the right amount of time under teachers' guidance and correct focus. With that, they understand how to use electronics properly as assistance to their academics.

The academics at Delano Academy go well above the Ontario curriculum. STEAM activities are incorporated into every class and lessons are given with a hands-on approach. The school is very well equipped to challenge gifted learners as they provide each student with an individual learning plan. Students are able to go up a full grade level if it is deemed in the best interest of a child. Children are pushed beyond their limits through the balance of arts, academics, and athletics. The IB curriculum is second to none and Delano is a leader in their execution of the program. Character traits and values are a systemic aspect of the school. The arts program is unique and more sophisticated than traditional schools in that students learn about artists and emulate style and technique while completing projects of meaning. Athletics are beyond compare with the head of the department being a retired professional soccer player. He is able to bring out the best in sportsmanship and team building to create a program that excels far beyond Ontario's standard.
