The Benefits of Private Schools

Choosing where to send your child to school can be overwhelming – with all the options available, from boarding schools to alternative schools and preschools, it can be hard to know which school would suit your child and help them succeed.

Here are a few of the many reasons parents are choosing Ashwood Glen private school and why it’s worth the investment:

International Baccalaureate (IB) program

Our pedagogy integrates core concepts from the established Montessori and the progressive International Baccalaureate (IB) methodologies. By merging these proven formats, we create a unique, well-balanced educational program that facilitates early social and academic learning.

The design of the Montessori program is ideal for our students in that it stimulates learning through inquiry, harnessing each child’s curiosity and exploratory nature. Moreover, the approach allows children to learn at their unique pace and styles.

The IB framework is a concept-driven, transdisciplinary and inquiry-based approach in which students develop the confidence to take responsibility for their learning with the goal of becoming internationally minded individuals, equipped to take responsibility in making a positive difference in their personal and global communities. The framework promotes and encourages academic and intercultural competencies, while simultaneously meeting the social and emotional needs of our students.

Small class sizes that allow for personalized and flexible learning

Our innovative programs extend beyond academics and focus on each child as an individual; taking the time to understand and build upon each child’s strengths, interests, and capabilities. With small student-teacher ratios, we take meticulous interest in each child’s development and focus on individual learning needs to augment the learning outcomes of the Ontario Curriculum.

Mentor time

Mentor time at Ashwood Glen provides students an added sense of security. The mentor – mentee relationship creates a trusted safe space for students to communicate with and lean on their assigned mentor who will work closely with them to provide support as and when required.

At Ashwood Glen, we believe in balancing personal wellbeing and achievement. Our programs help students navigate and build mutually beneficial relationships and character traits. While academic achievement is strongly encouraged, students are also nurtured and supported to reach objectives at their own pace using a variety of resources and methodologies.

In summary, our intent is always to create confident and capable leaders equipped to lead change and make a difference in their local and global communities.
