French as a Second Language
All Glenora students are afforded the opportunity of receiving French instruction for 150 minutes weekly in grades 1 through 6. As a learning community we believe in the value of second language instruction that begins at an early age.
Glenora School is honored to offer excellence in fine arts programming to all students. Glenora has music and art specialists who work with students in grades 1-6. Our school community highly values student showcasing of fine arts achievement. Our annual gala Art Fair is a highlight of our school year. Students perform in a major concert at Christmas as well as performing publicly at City Hall.
International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program
Beginning in grade six, all Glenora students experience year one of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program. Years 2,3 and 4 of the IBMY continue at Westminster Junior High.
The essence of our IBMY programing is captured in the IB mission statement.
“The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.”
To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
