UPPER SCHOOL

Grades 6, 7 and 8

Fostering a life-long love of learning.

Students in the Upper School remain challenged by a strong General Studies and a stimulating Jewish Studies program.
 
The hard work and stimulating programs of the Day School develop strong study habits and a love of learning that will serve them well in the future. By the time they reach our Upper School, LCHDS students are extremely well positioned for success upon entering High School and most of our graduates will go on to Post Secondary education. 

“LCHDS provided me with a fantastic academic start from which I continued my studies at Central Secondary, Northwestern University and ultimately, a lifelong pursuit of learning.”

Our General Studies Curriculum meets and exceeds the Ontario Ministry of Education requirements. Early in the month of May, students in Grades 6, 7 and 8 take The Canadian Achievement Test. The CAT 4 assesses the students’ achievements in relationship to the Ontario Curriculum.

A portion of the Jewish Studies program in the Upper School is dedicated to Holocaust studies, and a defining moment of the Upper School years is the bi-annual trip to the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC for Grades 7 and 8. This group trip has a powerful and positive effect upon students’ sense of Jewish identity, and the experience helps solidify enduring bonds between friends that remain well after graduation.

The Upper School Hebrew Curriculum also develops a considerable fluency in the Hebrew language and provides an excellent foundation in helping students to prepare for their Bar / Bat Mitzvah.

A detailed course curriculum is provided to parents. If you have any questions, please contact the school at office@lchds.ca
