Academic support continues to be a main focus at James Hill. Teachers and staff continually strive to meet students where they are and challenge them from there.
For those students who struggle in numeracy and literacy, we have 2 learning assistance and resource teachers, Ms. Candido and Ms. Edwards, who provide both support in the classroom as well as small group support in the resource room. Mr. Steeves, our music teacher, also provides learning assistance through reading groups. Ms. Edwards also provides Reading Recovery support for early literacy at our school. These help to close the gap early by offering extra support in addition to their regular reading program.
We believe that all students have strengths at James Hill and that all students can learn. By meeting students where they are at, we can best support their strengths and struggles to create a successful, engaging learning environment.
