Language support for students not fluent in English

The EAL program at Ambrit aims to assist students whose first language is not English, in becoming competent users of the English language so they can participate fully in the social and academic life of the school. English language learning is not intended as a replacement for the student’s home language(s) but as an additional language. Through differentiated support options, the EAL support teachers collaborate with class teachers to facilitate the integration of all English language learners into the mainstream classrooms.

Use of technology in the classroom

Today’s children are growing up in a world increasingly dominated by technology and media. Ambrit’s ICT philosophy aims to empower students and enable them to become competent and responsible users of Technology in all its applications. To this end, ICT at Ambrit is treated as a means of achieving a desired result rather than as a subject whose skills are taught in isolation. Therefore, Technology lessons are based upon a curriculum subject area, the lessons being the result of close collaboration between the class or subject teacher and the ICT team. The technology curriculum endeavors to empower students with the necessary skills, knowledge, and understanding of ICT in a modern world through the integrated use of up to date, industry-standard programs, and teaching methods. To enhance the way students learn and interact with technology, teachers use technological tools found in our Media lab, equipped with 25 iMacs as well as mobile technology consisting of 40 MacBook airs and 40 iPads located on carts throughout the school alongside other electronic teaching resources. Additionally, Ambrit currently has a one-to-one iPad program in Grades 5-8.

Is the school ready to use virtual classrooms when needed? (e.g. teaching lessons online if the school is closed, e.g. during COVID-19 closures)

The school is equipped to offer synchronous and asynchronous learning in case of a lockdown.

Do students practice religion at the school? What religion?

Do teachers assign homework to their students?

Yes

Approximate hours of homework given

At Ambrit, homework is meaningful and aims to extend and not replace classroom learning. All students are expected to read every day and other assignments vary according to grade level. In Early Childhood and Primary, home-school connections are emphasized and explained by teachers for parents to work on with their children. Students will not be assigned busywork or stacks of worksheets but will be asked to make regular connections to their classroom learning. Homework expectations for students in Middle School increase considerably but their assignments are no less meaningful.

Dedicated staff/programs for students with special learning needs

Ambrit recognizes the potential within each child. In an effort to foster the student’s continued growth, the Learning Support team provides assistance to students with mild or moderate learning differences and to students requiring academic support.

Learning support offered

Learning Support teachers work closely with classroom teachers, specialist teachers, tutors and external consultants. These professionals, together with the invaluable input of parents, ensure that Ambrit is providing the personalized support that all students require.

The school supports gifted, able and talented students

The curriculum will be differentiated so that gifted, able and talented students can be challenged based on their level.
