We believe that learning should happen both inside and outside the classroom, as a part of daily life. Students are encouraged to be in charge of their own learning with the guidance and support of their teachers. They select questions that they want to investigate in each subject area and are encouraged to continue their engagement with certain projects and subjects based on their individual curiosity.

Students take English, Science, Technology, Math, Social Studies (History and Geography), French, Physical Education, Visual Arts, Drama and Study Skills as part of a broad preparation for high school.

Inquiry-based Learning

Inquiry-based learning is a dynamic process that builds on students’ natural curiosity about the world in which they live. Inquiry-based learning is student-centric: the student drives the learning process forward by asking questions, and engaging in discussions and reflections. Inquiry-based learning enables students to gain a more in-depth understanding of the subject, but naturally and organically.

In this process, teachers act as a facilitators by providing resources and experiences to the students. They ensure that every student is challenged appropriately. All assessments are designed with the three key components of presentation, reflection and feedback.

Enhanced Curriculum

The middle school years form an important period in students’ progress toward independence. Students practice collaboration and leadership throughout the day both inside and outside the classroom. Our broad program is intended to foster the intellectual, physical, emotional, and cultural growth and development of each student; it includes tasks and experiences which support and challenge students. The program encourages students to broaden their interests and to become aware of their potential. Although each subject has its own grade-specific objectives, students are encouraged to set their own goals and dive deeper to stimulate their curiosity.

Balanced Education

School is more than just what is learned in the classroom. At Keystone, we aim to challenge students physically, creatively, and socially. Students spend more than 7 hours a week in arts and physical education during the middle school years. Students go on at least one field trip per month to make connections in the real-world to what they have learnt in the classroom.
