Dare to Reimagine Learning

Placement

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.
