St. Anthony Vision Statement
At St. Anthony School, we value the importance of stimulating learning partnerships amongst students, teachers, parents, and the community. We believe a child's elementary school life, in a safe and caring environment, lays the foundation for the development of a positive attitude towards lifelong learning within a global mindset.
All students are encouraged to aspire to high individual academic standards through our early immersion model in language arts, mathematics, science and technology, social studies, music, ethics and religious culture, drama and physical education.
We believe that all students can succeed to the best of their ability by encouraging open-mindedness, risk taking, being knowledgeable and inquisitive. By cultivating these abilities, our students will become caring and active learners’ helping create a more peaceful world by demonstrating intercultural understanding and respect.
The Quebec Education Program (QEP) defines course requirements, content, competencies, progressions of learning and the framework for the Evaluation of student learning.
An Immersion school teaches all core subjects in French from Kindergarten to grade 2. This means that students spend the majority of their week in French. Once the students reach grade 3, English Language Arts is introduced and math is also taught in English until grade 6. This means that, from Grade 3 to Grade 6, students spend approximately half their week learning in English and approximately the other half learning in French.
The International Baccalaureate programme encourages students to become caring, active participants in their lifelong journey of learning. The programme empowers students to inquire into a wide range of issues and ideas of significance locally, nationally and globally.
