Students start with a balanced core program in Tutorial One (grade nine), have some choices in Tutorial Two (grade ten), and have a variety of options in the IB years Tutorial Three and Tutorial Four (grade eleven and twelve). We want our students to combine solid content knowledge and strong academic skills.
Our goal is to train them to think critically, communicate effectively, take risks in learning, be open minded and reflective. Students are encouraged to develop an international perspective and an understanding of global issues.
The life of a student is enriched further by many curricular and extra curricular activities. Students may join clubs and activities that improve their skills, kindle their interests, provide leadership opportunities, and offer service to others. The office of student activities provides information and assistance. The annual UNIS/UN conference organized by our students examines relevant global concerns and takes place in the UN General Assembly Hall.
The Tutorial One and Tutorial Two students participate in outdoor environmental education programs. Tutorial House teams in a variety of sports participate in league tournaments throughout the year. The arts program is also strong. Visual Arts, drama and music play an important role in our Tutorial House curriculum.
The dean of students oversees the quality of student life in the Tutorial House. Each student is also assigned a mentor who will monitor the youngster’s academic, social, and emotional progress for the four years in the Tutorial House. A guidance counselor will stay with each grade for four years providing support and counseling as needed and following their growth. IB coordinators and college counselors provide the guidance needed for the IB years and the college admissions process. There is a learning specialist to assist students with mild to moderate learning needs.
The journey through the Tutorial House prepares our youngsters to face their future with confidence and take their place as leaders of tomorrow.
