Academics At CWSA

Both the enriched arts program and the academic program satisfy and indeed often exceed all the requirements of the Ministry of Education Curriculum Expectations found in the curriculum documents. The school timetable provides for 15 hours of academic classes and 15 hours of arts classes. In the junior grades students have a core teacher who delivers instruction in most of the academic subjects and then the students enter a rotary system for the arts. At the middle level students follow a rotary system for both the academic and the arts classes. Given that the arts provide a full spectrum of physical activity students will not experience the same number of Phys. Ed. Classes. As well the lunch period is only 45 minutes in duration. This enables us to provide the extra time required for the Arts. Whenever possible, teachers try to integrate the arts into their academic programs.
