Prince Rupert District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

School District No. 52 serves students in the communities of Prince Rupert, Hartley Bay, Port Edward, Kwa’alaams, and Metlakatla. The district is home to six elementary schools and two secondary schools. All of the schools are located directly in Prince Rupert. Prince Rupert—along with all schools in the province of British Columbia—is in the process of implementing a new provincial 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.

We currently cover the following Prince Rupert-area school district: School District No. 52.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Prince Rupert District Curriculum

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, logical reasoning, 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. The assessment will be redesigned to align with the new curriculum. The district—with a large percentage of students being of Aboriginal descent—prides itself on providing Aboriginal education to its students.

Keeping Informed: Recent Prince Rupert Educational News

  • Prince Rupert Students Learn First Nations Language - Forty percent of Price Rupert’s population is Aboriginal, so beginning in the 2015-16 school year, all Prince Rupert students in grades K-4 were required to learn Sm'algyax, the language of the Tsimshian First Nation. For 40 minutes each week, students learn simple parts of the language through songs and activities. Learning the language helps students get in touch with their culture. Students in fifth grade and up may also choose to take this language—instead of French—to fulfill their foreign language requirement for entrance into universities.
  • Prince Rupert Students Wear Pink to Encourage Kindness - The schools of District 52 celebrated Pink Shirt Day in order to encourage kindness and put a spotlight on anti-bullying. Students at Pineridge Elementary watched a movie about hurtful and helpful bystanders, learning that a student who steps in and tells a bully to stop or who gets an adult to help can stop an act of bullying in eight to ten seconds. Ecole Roosevelt Park Community School focused on random acts of kindness all week and those who committed kind acts were recognized, and students wrote messages of kindness on pink paper T-shirts that were displayed in the entrance of the school.
  • BC Lions Teach Students Their Values - Three members of the Canadian Football League (CFL)’s BC Lions visited Charles Hays Secondary School as part of their tour around schools in the northern part of the province in which they make their “Lions Pride” presentation. The players emphasized three major points during the presentation: the importance of teamwork, making positive choices, and setting goals. They put the teens through three interactive activities to get their message across: tug-of-war, a push-up and sit-up race, and a relay obstacle.

Chalk Talk: Transitioning from High School to College

Unfortunately, a large percentage of students drop out of college, and it is likely because they were not prepared for the rigors of college. The transition from high school to college is a difficult one; although students are excited about the new freedoms that they have, this freedom can also lead to their downfall. Most college students are living on their own for the first time, so they must learn to balance that freedom and having a good time with studying and their academics. Obviously, academics should be number one on the priority list, but it is also important for students to have a social life while in college or else they will end up miserable and burnt out. It is a good idea for college students to get involved in a few organizations—just as long as they are not overwhelmed.
