The School educates a variety of students from across Canada and around the world. Although it is not possible to cover all of the provincial and national standards for each student, every effort is made to cover the core curriculum expectations so that students can re-integrate smoothly when they return home.
For students in JK-Grade 8, all lessons taught at the Ronald McDonald House Toronto School are based on the Ontario Curriculum, and inspired by the interests of the students in the School. You can review the Ontario Curriculum to discover what the student missing from your class is studying. Simply go to the following website, click on the grade level you teach and then the subject you would like to see: www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/document/curricul/curricul.html. Please note all subjects, excluding French, are taught in this setting.
Grades 9-12 students work on completing Ontario high school credits. The credits students take are chosen based on a studentâ€™s academic history and grade requirements. Credits are accessed through the Independent Learning Centre of Ontario.
All students participate in special monthly events including field trips and school fairs. Field trips to places such as the Royal Ontario Museum, Ontario Science Centre, Allen Gardens and Medieval Times are organized to compliment the themes being studied in class. School fairs provide opportunities for students to celebrate and show off their learning by leading educational centres for parents and staff!
