Our students experience a sense of belonging in a caring and inclusive learning environment that addresses their well-being.
We are committed to honouring and respecting all of our students by creating an environment where they feel included, valued and treated with dignity. School-based safe caring and inclusive school teams support the promotion of a positive school climate within our schools and community.
Students and staff had the opportunity to come together and learn more about creating inclusive learning environments during the 8th annual Gay-Straight Alliance conference at Bingemans in February. More than 200 attendees participated in a variety of workshops, listened to keynote speakers, and had the opportunity to gather valuable information from a number of community booths.
“Our schools are safe spaces for everyone that walks through the front doors and we’ll continue to create inclusive, safe spaces, and ensure the well-being of all students and staff,” said John Bryant, Director of Education.
Our students pursue individual learning pathways that reflect their interests, develop skills for the future and inspire global citizenship.
We believe that schools and staff have an important role to play in innovating the future through the way we are educating our students today. The future is full of new possibilities and advancements, and we want to ensure that our students are prepared for the realities of what the workforce and our world may look like after they graduate. We want to support students in developing critical thinking and independent learning skills that with prepare them for their futures.
We offer System Designated Specialized (Magnet) Programs designed to meet the needs of our unique group of students. These Magnet programs help support individualized learning, promote educational excellence and help a student’s transition to a specific post-secondary destination whether it is work, college or university.
Our students succeed in reaching their potential and graduating from WRDSB high schools and programs.
Through the introduction of new technology, special programming and customized support, we build students’ confidence as they face the future. It is important to us that every student experiences a caring learning environment that encourages their success. When a student’s optimal learning potential is affected by behavioural, communicative, intellectual or physical exceptionalities, special education support is provided.
We strive to provide educational opportunities that encourage all students to develop their individual potential in the most enabling environment. The Build a Credit program in our secondary schools is a perfect example, as it creates an environment that addresses the academic, social and emotional needs of our students while propelling them towards graduation.
