The Project is designed to respond to the particular requirements of High School education:

  • an environment in which there is tremendous pressure to cover an extensive curriculum and achieve high scores on examinations

given that the aims of this new type of school are:

  1. to provide high quality general education
  2. to develop the capacities of initiative, creativity and judgement in high school students
  3. to provide students with the necessary qualifications and tools to continue their studies at the post-secondary level
  4. to cultivate in students the skills that will facilitate their access to further specialization or training when in the job market.
