Graduation is a major step from childhood to adulthood.
Our children need to be prepared to succeed as adults when they walk across the stage and get their Dogwood certificate.
The new curriculum maps out a clear path to graduation - and preparation for life after high school.
Under new curriculum, the path to graduation is more flexible. The grad program still spans Grades 10, 11, and 12, but a student's path to their Dogwood may be more varied and flexible than before. Teachers and students will now have more opportunity to explore learning outside of the classroom and build on each student's potential.
