The teachers will not be developing class lists for student placement for the upcoming year at the end of June. The task of assigning students to classes is a complicated one. In making decisions the staff consider the following criteria:

  • a balance of academic abilities
  • a balance of each grade in a combined or split grade
  • a balance of boys and girls
  • a balance of “high demand” students in each classroom
  • avoidance of personality conflicts between students
  • a match between learning style and teaching style

The school will make the final decision surrounding student placement based upon the above criteria.
