Curriculum

The York School Junior Kindergarten to Grade 5 curriculum reflects our commitment to experiential learning.
Our goal is to help students develop to their fullest potential while addressing each child’s social, physical, emotional and cultural needs.

Many resources have been used to develop this curriculum, including the Ontario Ministry of Education Elementary Curriculum, the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme Scope and Sequence documents and up-to-date pedagogical research.
 
Our teachers employ a variety of teaching strategies which enable our students to develop knowledge, skills and understanding that build from year to year.
 
The focus is on developing strong skills, knowledge and understandings in literacy, numeracy, critical thinking, research, problem-solving, communication and the arts. Our students are encouraged to become independent learners who are aware of their own strengths and talents.
