We will set high expectations for success and prompt students to think deeply through questioning, inquiry, and application of knowledge. We will ensure student’s learning is monitored through on-going assessment and self-reflection.

Instructional Focus

Staff and students will understand how teaching points and strategies impact our writing, why they are important and how they are transferable.
