Curriculum

The Spaulding School of the Arts follows the Ontario curriculum but uses our unique teaching methods to explore the content with an emphasis on hands on learning. Students in the gifted program will work through the same curriculum as the rest of the school, with core subjects including math, science, English, geography, etc. However, students will have an even wider variety of ways to complete their work to cater to individual needs, preferences and learning styles.

Students who enjoy plowing through content at a fast pace from a textbook will have that opportunity. Others may prefer online learning, so for some subjects, students will be able to use educational apps and websites to work through the required material. In addition, activity sheets with hands-on learning options will be available for those who learn best in this way. And students will also spend one-on-one time with the teacher to assess their work, work through any difficulties, and get individual feedback and direction to make sure they remain challenged in all subjects.

STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) challenges are a part of our morning activities. These challenges are a fun way for students to start the morning when they first get to class. These activities give them a setlist of supplies they can use and a task to complete or goal to achieve that requires planning, critical thinking, abstract through, analytical skills, teamwork, and usually some trial and error to complete. This is a great opportunity for students to learn first hand in these subjects and problem solve and experiment to come to the answer allowing them to truly understand how things work so students will comprehend the material on a deeper level.

Students in the gifted program will also work on independent and group interest projects throughout the year. These projects may be something simple like gathering information to learn about a subject that they want to know more about, it could be a collective question the class had wanted to learn more about a subject or current event or solving a problem. These projects will allow students to really dive into their own interests and will use problem-solving and critical thinking skills to learn how to find real-world applications to their projects and put them into action to effect real changes within the school or community. We want our students to see that they can be leaders even at a young age and that everyone can make a positive impact in the world.
