OUR SCHOOL GOALS AND PHILOSOPHY
Toronto High School High School has established objectives to ensure that each student has the maximum opportunity to learn. The achievement of these objectives depends upon the shared responsibilities of students, teachers, and parents.
- To provide the tradition of excellence in academics, personal growth
- To develop a feeling of self-worth through accomplishments, discipline and respect for oneself and others.
- To encourage self-motivation so that students take a responsible role in their own education.
- To create a positive learning environment through shared responsibility of teachers, students and parents.
- To prepare students for the world of work by developing productivity, punctuality, and pride in work.
Our students are expected to develop their potential as individuals and to become contributing, responsible members of society, who will think clearly, feel deeply, and act wisely.
Late Assignment Policy
It is the expectation, of all students enrolled in Toronto High School, that all assignments shall be submitted by the designated due date, at the start of class. Assignments are designed to reflect the curriculum expectations and, as such, are crucial to the assessment of the students’ achievement. Teachers will strictly enforce this policy and their establishment of a due date is final.
Should students not submit an assignment by the due date, the following will apply:
The assignment may be submitted, but must be accompanied by a clearly written reason for the assignment being late.
The assignment must be submitted before any of the assignments have been returned to the class by the teacher.
If these two conditions are met, the assignment will be accepted at face value. Should students not fulfill the conditions; a mark of zero will be given since there is no evidence of achievement with respect to the curriculum expectations evaluated on that assignment. Note that the assignment may be returned at any time, since some assignments must be returned next day as apart of the lesson/learning activity. If a student is working with a partner(s) and the assignment is turned in late, all members of the group will bear the consequences set by the teacher.
Instructor Granted Extensions
It is up to the discretion of the teacher to grant extensions on deadlines. Special arrangements may be made for extenuating circumstances such as legitimate absences, personal emergencies and mitigating circumstances. Students should not assume that special arrangements will automatically be made; therefore, they must discuss their unique situations with the teacher. The teacher, acting as a representative for the Principal under the provisions of the Education Act, will determine if the situation warrants a further extension. If in doubt, the teacher will consult the Principal. The decision rendered is final.
Missed Assignments, Tests, Presentations Policy
- Students are expected to assume full responsibility for class attendance and are accountable for all work missed because of absences. Assignments are due as soon as the student returns to school with a legitimate reason. For prolonged absences, new due dates will be set.
- If students miss a test with legitimate reasons, they are responsible to write that evaluation on the day on which they return at a time set by the teacher. For prolonged absences, the teacher will use his\her professional judgment to set new test dates for that particular student. For students without legitimate absences, a zero will result even if the test is eventually required to be completed for learning purposes.
- Presentations are critical learning experiences and often involve more than one student; therefore, students without authenticated reasons for absences will be given zero if they are not present for a scheduled presentation. If applicable, the teacher will determine how or if that member’s absence affects the group’s total evaluation.
As in the late assignment policy, the teacher will have the authority to grant extensions or exemptions for extenuating circumstances.
Full Disclosure Policy
All Grades 11 and 12 courses are subjected to the Ministry of Education’s Full Disclosure Policy. All courses in which a student is registered three days after the issue of each semester’s midterm report will be recorded on the Ontario Student Transcript (OST) whether the course has been successfully completed or not. A withdrawal is recorded on the OST by entering a “W” in the “Credit “ column. The Student’s percentage Grade at the time of the withdrawal is recorded in the “Percentage Grade” column. Students, who repeat a Grade 11 or 12 courses that they have previously completed, only earn one credit for the course. However, each attempt as well as the percentage grade obtained is recorded on the OST, and an R is entered in the “Credit” column for the course(s) with the lower percentage grade.
Students have access to minimum of 15 computers. All computers have access to fast Internet service (up to 3 MB/second at server location). The use of computers is limited to research and educational matters only.
Regular, punctual attendance is essential for every student to achieve academic success. Parents can help by ensuring that any absences are necessary and valid. If the process of learning is disrupted by irregular attendance, learning experiences are lost and cannot be made up completely. Students who habitually miss class will be disadvantaged in the evaluation processes because their participation and daily work cannot be adequately assessed.
It is the student's responsibility to be honest in all aspects of academic work.
The following behaviors are unacceptable: physical, verbal, sexual or psychological abuse; bullying; or discrimination on the basis of race, culture, religion, gender, language, disability, sexual orientation, or any other attribute.
Attendance is a student’s main priority. Inappropriate and undocumented absences are truancies. Students who are truant at the time of evaluations such as tests, quizzes, presentations, homework grading or skill assessments, may not have a makeup opportunity and may be graded “0” on the evaluation. The consequences of truancy may be detentions, counseling with parents, referral to attendance counselor, suspension, or withdrawal from school.
Full attendance at school is vital for maximum success. Important dates are identified in the monthly calendar to assist families when planning special events.
Absence from a final examination because of illness must be explained by a doctor’s note.
