I believe a successful education comes from a strong partnership between home and school. Only by working together can we continue to achieve our goals of excellence in literacy, numeracy and citizenship and provide the very best possible education for your children. I am proud of all three of our programs: Regular, Mandarin Bilingual and Interactions. We have excellent achievement results that stem from our high expectations for our students.
Dovercourt teachers demonstrate strong skills in teaching numeracy and literacy across the curriculum. As well, they have received extensive professional development in the use of technology as a tool in delivering the curriculum for 21st century learners. I personally teach the Leveled Literacy program.
Dovercourt School Council and the Parent Auxiliary Network of Dovercourt Association have given tremendous input and financial support to our community. We hope that you will consider joining this group of committed parents who meet monthly.
Our whole school is focused on helping children develop a growth mindset -- learning to think "I can," rather than, "I can't." Setting goals with a positive outlook helps our children strive to do as well as they can.
Teachers in all of our programs work together to develop a rich learning climate with many exciting cultural events. I invite you to contact me for more information about our dynamic school.
