At Edith Rogers School, we respect the diverse and distinct needs of each individual. Our learning environments provide high quality and authentic learning experiences which inspire students to be critical thinkers and engaged learners. We provide a community so that every student may learn, create, be inspired and better the world.
Edith Rogers is a Leader in Me School. Based on the book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens®, The Leader in Me is a whole-school transformation model that helps to improve performance of all our programs. It produces transformational results such as higher academic achievement, enhanced student commitment, and increased engagement among teachers and parents. The Leader in Me equips students with the self-confidence and skills they need to thrive as a 21st century learner. Learning the 7 Habits helps our students develop many skills: leadership, accountability, initiative, creativity, goal-setting, cross-cultural skills, problem-solving, and effective communication.
To further ensure high levels of learning for all our students, our staff works as a professional learning community engaging in job embedded professional development on a weekly basis. Our teachers are learners themselves, constantly improving their instructional practices and collaborating to create a diverse and rewarding classroom experience.
In response to global trends and our continued efforts to ensure that students are prepared for the brightest possible future, we have added Cogito and Mandarin as a Second Language in recent years to our already wide array of programs. Cogito employs a traditional style of teaching focused on ensuring mastery and fluency of important skills and curriculum, while Mandarin as a Second Language ensures that students will be able to communicate in what is fast becoming one of the world’s most widely spoken business languages.
Edith Rogers is a community school that places great value on creating positive relationships with our parent community. Throughout the school year we have many opportunities for our families to participate in meetings, celebrations, after school activities and special days at school. Parents and students will receive these communications through SchoolZone, and may also follow us on Twitter, @ERSchool.
On behalf of the staff, I welcome you to Edith Rogers School. We look forward to working in partnership with you to ensure the success your children and our students.
