RELEVANT SCHOOLS SOCIETY
Welcome to Diamond Elementary & Relevant High Schools!
Thank you for your interest in our school. Student application forms, the schedule of fees, and information about our registration process can be downloaded from this website page.
Registration Protocol: Re-registration applications for returning students are processed before new student applications. After March 1st 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 the fall. The idea is for parents to learn more about our school’s philosophy and program, and for us to meet you. If you wish to attend one of these information sessions, please email or call the school. Space is limited, so we recommend that you RSVP as soon as possible. This year the following are the dates for these meetings:
Thursday, March 2nd @ 9:30 a.m. – This session is now full.
Wednesday, March 8th @ 9:30 a.m. – This session is now full.
Wednesday, March 29th @ 9:30 a.m. – This session is now full.
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), middle school (grades 7 – 9), and graduation grades 10 - 12. After the 2018-2019 school year, we will begin phasing out the senior graduation program grades to allow us to augment and broaden our elementary and middle school programming.
