We take pride in our work by being at the forefront of pedagogy that is rich and instigated by provocative research. Central to teaching and learning is the Reggio philosophy where our images of children – curious, exploratory and inquisitive – embrace personal passions and interests in students’ quest for a better understanding of their world and life. Leonardo Da Vinci’s seven principles guide us as we shift from a process of disseminating information to a process of inquiry and discovery in our effort to identify our students’ competencies.
Although our learners will continue to study reading, writing, and mathematics, they will focus more deeply on a curriculum that allows for more interdisciplinary studies. Combined in this philosophy is the opportunity for children to participate in project-based work that allows children to explore in-depth a topic of interest from many perspectives for an extended period of time. Embedded throughout the work is the use of technology. This approach to learning involves the knowledge, skills, and aptitudes that enable individuals to think critically, communicate effectively, deal with change and solve problems in a variety of contexts to achieve their personal goals, develop their knowledge and potential, and participate fully in society.
This notion fulfills the belief and the importance that Capitol Hill students receive the right to learn in a good school, be taught by excellent teachers, and experience a learning environment filled with beautiful artifacts representative of their own learning. At Capitol Hill School each child is honored, inspired and highly regarded for their personal gifts and talents.
Please note: Capitol Hill School is a public education school serving the communities of Capitol Hill, Banff Trail, Collingwood, and Charleswood. We are not accepting out of area students at this time.
Capitol Hill School is home to two system classes (TASC and Bridges) and is a school of creativity where the child is the center of all decisions related to learning and education. Ours is a culture where children and educators learn to innovate and create original work in a multi-disciplinary manner through entrepreneurial initiatives.
Our instructional model inspires, engages and embraces children’s passions and interests. It reflects the competencies for 21st-century learning as outlined in the framework for student learning. We have moved forward from learning through the art school to a “school of creativity” where creating, inventing and innovating will become the focus for all of our inquiry by developing our students to be engaged thinkers, ethical citizens with an entrepreneurial spirit. Our aim is to personalize students’ learning by utilizing an inquiry-based learning model through project-based experiences with outcomes determined by students and teachers.
Students have the opportunity to speak with insight and intelligence about what they are learning and how they learn. Focused on inquiry-based learning, children engage, explore and represent their understanding in meaningful ways. Inspired by the Reggio philosophy, our images of children–curious, exploratory, and inquisitive–honors a students’ quest for a better understanding of their world and life.
Children participate in project-based work that inspires them to explore a topic of interest in depth from many perspectives for an extended period of time. Throughout this work, technology is embedded and interwoven to connect ideas and curricular content. This approach to learning engages individuals to think critically, communicate effectively, deal with change and solve problems in a variety of contexts to achieve their personal goals and develop their knowledge and potential.
