This policy sets out our commitment to ensuring that students with exceptional educational needs gain the necessary knowledge, skills, and attributes to achieve their highest level of learning.

Language is an essential tool for teaching and learning therefore all teachers at Fairmont Private Schools (FPS) are language teachers. Although English is the language of instruction, all languages are respected. Students are expected to become proficient in the language of the home country (English), and the acquisition of another language (Spanish/Mandarin) is offered as an option. Development of mother tongue language is encouraged.

An essential part of academic honesty is developing the skills, knowledge, and attitudes to be academically honest. This includes learning the principles of paraphrasing and quotation, citing the work of others according to accepted conventions, and knowing what constitutes intellectual property and what limits are placed on the use of those properties.

Assessment is a practice that drives instruction and involves teachers, students and parents. Assessment measures student learning and informs stakeholders about an individual’s areas of strength and areas that are in development. Information from assessment is used to identify learning targets and plan curriculum. Fairmont Private Schools strives to develop assessment tasks that are authentic, that is, they are summative, specific, criterion related, varied, use of a range of measurement tools, and have real-world applications wherever possible.
