The district also offers several types of alternate programs and career programs, an Outdoor Learning Centre, and an early childhood center.

  • Our daughter was able to improve her science test scores after only one semester of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Powell River District Curriculum

The curriculum is changing to reflect the technology-driven world and help students locate and analyze information, to place more emphasis on concepts and processes, and to focus on learning less material but in greater depth. While the new curriculum will ensure that essential elements of learning are applied consistently, individual teachers will have freedom and will have the ability to personalize learning and differentiate instruction to meet the diverse needs of each their students.

The curriculum will also balance the “big ideas” that drive instruction that students need to understand with the foundational skills they learn as well as develop critical thinking and communication skills. Each content area will have a set of core competencies, and Aboriginal content—important learning for students in BC and all of Canada—will continue to be embedded. The new curriculum will be fully and officially implemented in grades K-9 by the 2016-17 school year and in grades 10-12 by the 2017-18 school year.

Keeping Informed: Recent Powell River Educational News

  • Brooks Secondary School Considers Schedule, Structure Changes for More Flexibility - Brooks Secondary School is proposing that big changes be made in its structure and students’ schedules to help meet the needs of the province’s new curriculum. This would result in blocks in students’ schedules, allowing for more choice and flexibility throughout the school day and for the school to offer courses in more subject areas. Most of the students surveyed are in favor of the proposed changes.
  • Brooks Secondary School Jazz Band Opens for Well-Known Quintet - When the members of the Brooks Secondary School jazz band named themselves Take 5, they didn't realize they were named after one of the most significant songs in the history of jazz. The five musicians ranging in age from 14 to 16 recently had an important moment of their own, as they opened for the Calgary-based Foothills Brass Quintet during one of their concerts. Take 5’s teacher and mentor praised them for always performing their best no matter where they were performing, even if it was just in the school cafeteria.
  • Brooks Students Participate in Youth Services Workshop - Forty-five students from Brooks Secondary School had the opportunity to participate in a Youth Services Workshop organized by Health Youth Wellness Coordinator Tyler Peters. Students were able to listen to presentations from nine different organizations, and the main message was for them not to be afraid to ask for help, as there are many individuals and organizations willing to assist them. The students created Idea Trees, which showed what type of organizations they would like to see in their community in the future.

Chalk Talk: Transitioning from Middle to High School

Transitioning from middle to high school is a big step in a young person’s life. Students will have more flexibility in the courses they can choose than was the case in middle school. There will be many more electives to choose from, and students will likely not be mandated to take courses that were required in middle school, such as art, music, and the family and consumer sciences. In terms of the social aspect, middle school is often a tough adjustment, and sometimes, high school can be even more difficult. Cliques may become more abundant, and the older upperclassmen may bully the underclassmen. Many schools have mentoring or buddy programs to help smooth the transition. However, high school students will have a wealth of organizations and activities to join to meet classmates who have similar interests to theirs.
