Middle Years Program
King Heights Academy encourages students in grade 7 and 8 to make practical connections between their studies and the real world, preparing them for success in further study and in life.
The King Heights Academy’s Middle Years Program aims to develop active learners and internationally minded young people who can empathize with others and pursue lives of purpose and meaning.
The program empowers students to inquire into a wide range of issues and ideas of significance locally, nationally and globally. The result is young people who are creative, critical and reflective thinkers.
The program aims to help students develop their personal understanding, their emerging sense of self and responsibility in their community.
Teaching and learning
Using global contexts, students develop an understanding of their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet through developmentally appropriate explorations of:
• identities and relationships
• personal and cultural identity
• orientations in space and time
• scientific and technical innovation
• fairness and development
• globalization and sustainability.
Service as action, through community service
Students take action when they apply what they are learning in the classroom and beyond. Students strive to be caring members of the community who demonstrate a commitment to service—making a positive difference to the lives of others and to the environment.
Inclusion and learning diversity
King Heights Academy addresses differentiation within the written, taught and assessed curriculum.
This is demonstrated in the unit planner and in the teaching environment.
King Heights Academy has created and implemented an inclusion/special educational needs (SEN) policy that explains assessment access arrangements, classroom accommodations and curriculum modification that meet individual student learning needs.Now accepting registrations for 2017 - 2018 school year and Summer Camp 2017.
