St. Francis Xavier High School has been selected as a recipient of the 2018 Dr. Bette M. Stephenson Recognition of Achievement by the provincial Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO). The Dr. Bette Stephenson Recognition of Achievement is presented to schools that have effectively used data to support student learning.
St. Francis Xavier High School is one of 22 schools across Ontario that have been singled out for nurturing students’ passion for math and leading them onto academic success.
Over the last three years, the teachers in the applied math courses focussed on spiralling the curriculum, practicing a more practical approach to math, and using vertical surfaces to collaborate during their learning. All these measures helped the students feel better prepared to write the EQAO assessment.
We want to recognize the tremendous work of this school’s staff in fostering positive attitudes and their use of strategies to support students. Congratulations, St. FX for demonstrating that #ocsbLovesMath!
