Altadore School is focused on bringing the entire school community together to help each and every one of our students succeed – in academics, citizenship, character and personal development.
We believe in ongoing formative assessment to determine the individual strengths and learning needs of our students. We combine this information with strong instructional practices in order to design learning tasks that are active and intellectually engaging. Learning is personalized so that all students can participate, progress and achieve. Building connections between classroom learning and how it can be applied within our local and global communities is emphasized.
A well-rounded program including daily physical education and a focus on the fine arts is supplemented by off-site excursions, artist in residency programs, and extra-curricular activities. An edible garden and a naturalization space on our school grounds are run in cooperation with the community.
We are supported by an active and committed school council and there is a high degree of parental involvement in the school. S.E.E.D.S. of Spice runs a before and after school care program in the school.
