A SCHOOL WHERE CHILDREN LOVE TO LEARN
Royal Oak Community School
Welcome to Royal Oak; Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Community Independent School.
We at Royal Oak honour, respect and challenge our students, allowing them to reach their full potential in all endeavours. We know that choosing the right educational environment for your child can be quite challenging, and we take our responsibility as educators deeply to heart. Royal Oak embraces an open learning environment, specifically designed to promote self-confidence and respect for others. Each child is known and cared for both as an individual and as a learner. The challenge, as well as opportunities for Inquiry and hands-on learning offered at Royal Oak, will provide your child with the experiences to blossom academically, socially and emotionally.
At Royal Oak, we are committed to offering an exceptional academic experience to our students using an Inquiry-based method that delivers an enriched version of the Ontario Curriculum. Students work at their own level in programming that is engaging, idea and discussion focused, and that captures students interests but is also deeply challenging. We inspire the whole child by also caring for and supporting students' creativity through programming that is well-balanced in academics, the Arts and Physical Education. Our low student to teacher ratio allows our educators to focus on essential details of your child's learning, which are vital in effectively educating your child, as well as their distinct learning needs and style. Our safe and supportive environment offers our students the security they need to take risks, all while feeling encouraged and empowered. We foster our students' self esteem, independence, responsibility and a true love of learning.
We would be pleased to arrange a visit for you and your child - Come and experience how at Royal Oak, our students love to learn!
