Junior High School
Grades 9-10 | In Person & On Zoom
We provide a wonderful inclusive academic environment for our both local and international students having both in-person and virtual classes to master the needed skills of a self-reliant learner. These skills, in our view, are the cornerstones of academic quality, which include creative thinking, creative writing, and creative acting. Students graduating from RPS are then equipped with more than the necessary conditions of post-secondary school.
Our students take a maximum of five courses per term instead of a more traditional semester setting (four courses a semester). This would lead to a more effective time-table so that our students are able to manage their academic workload much more productively. RPS, in this way, seeks to provide a unique offering to Grades 9 and 10 students that challenge the traditional organization of learning.
Unlike many schools where the disciplines are isolated from one another and also from the real lives of students, at RPS, we aim to fully integrate disciplinary aspects in the practical experience of students based on an “of learning, as learning, for learning” attitude and assessment process. RPS is ministry inspected and adheres to all provincial standards, including the provision of an Ontario Provincial Report Card and official transcripts to post-secondary institutions.
