RELEVANT SCHOOLS SOCIETY
Thank you for your interest in our school. Student application forms, the schedule of fees, and information about our registration process for the 2018-2019 school year will be available in February 2018.
Registration Protocol: Re-registration applications for returning students are processed before new student applications. The Admissions Committee will begin processing new student applications for available spaces where applicable. Please note that our schools have only one class per grade level, and when all vacancies are filled, remaining applicants’ names will be placed on our wait list.
Information for prospective new parents: Each year we hold information sessions for parents of primary students applying for kindergarten to grade three in September 2018. The idea is for parents to learn more about our school’s philosophy and program, and for us to meet you. Dates for these information sessions will be posted in February 2018.
In the older grades we generally have few spaces come available; hence, when a space does come available, we will arrange an individual class visit and parent meeting at that time.
Applying to Kindergarten: To apply for Kindergarten, we ask that in addition to the New Student Application form that a Pre-Kindergarten Evaluation for your child be submitted to the school. Pre-Kindergarten Evaluation forms will be emailed to you upon receipt of your child’s Kindergarten application.
Our Educational Program: During the 47 years that our Society has been in existence, our purpose has been to offer a well-rounded, unique educational experience to our students. Our educational program focuses on academic excellence and social awareness, encourages involvement in fine arts, and tries to instill in students an understanding of the rights and responsibilities of the democratic society in which they live. Our schools promote kindness, cooperation, respect for others, and teach students to honor and celebrate their diversity. It is most important that our students believe in themselves and recognize the part they must play in making our world a better place to live. These values have been the cornerstone of our educational philosophy and have contributed to the ongoing evolution of our school programming.
Looking into the Future: We are happy to know that there is a continually growing interest in our unique educational philosophy and academic achievements. The success of the schools, and our commitment to maintaining small class sizes and a close-knit community atmosphere, have resulted in an increased demand for space. In addition, the Ministry of Education’s new graduation program curriculum in grades 10 - 12 is being implemented in 2018-2019 and requires an increased breadth of programming. As a result, we plan over the next two years to transition our school program to include a new middle school initiative, and grades will be restructured into primary (grades K - 3), intermediate (grades 4 - 6), and middle school (grades 7 – 9).
