Jasper Place Philosophy
At Jasper Place High School we are serious about student success and are committed to providing a positive learning environment that will foster and support high academic expectations and excellence in student achievement, behaviour and service.
We believe that success is best achieved in an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust and encourage a partnership among students, staff, parents and community members to support academic learning, demonstrated citizenship skills and student responsibility.
Differentiated instruction applies an approach to teaching and learning that provides students with multiple options for absorbing information and making sense of ideas. The model of differentiated instruction requires teachers to be flexible in their approach to teaching and adjusting the curriculum and presentation of information to learners. Classroom teaching is a blend of whole class, group and individual instruction. Differentiated Instruction is a teaching theory based on the premise that instructional approaches should vary and be adapted in relation to individual and diverse students in classrooms.
