Welcome to our Canadian Bilingual School learning community. Elementary administrative staff at CBS are committed to setting a direction of continuous improvement in serving the needs of our students and families. CBS has achieved accreditation from the Middle States Association (MSA) in the U.S. The standards set by MSA ensure that the Canadian Bilingual School is involved in continuous school improvement and accountability for the success of our students.
As part of our own commitment to student achievement, we have set an ambitious professional development plan this year to continue to improve instructional practices through the implementation of 'best practices' from leading educators in Ontario. As educators, we recognize the importance of our continuous growth to ensure excellence in providing optimal learning experiences for our students. We are focused on implementing strong programs to improve student outcomes in all subject areas, using innovative and engaging teaching strategies and programs.
We are very pleased with student achievement results in KG. English language acquisition of our KG students in oral language, reading and writing at CBS is in alignment with Ontario Standards. MAP scores in Grade 3-5 show aggressive improvement toward National Standards.
Parent engagement is a focus for CBS as we enter our 12th year of service. We strongly believe in the importance of teachers, parents and administrators collaborating and communicating openly and frequently. We continually improve the quality of tools and communication, including giving our parents access to an interactive parent portal (RenWeb), where they can retrieve pertinent information about their children's academic achievement. You are encouraged to regularly check our school website and RenWeb to find your child's information and learn about our exciting academic and after-school activities.
We look forward to serving you and your children over the coming years. Interested parents are encouraged to contact our school if you would like to have a tour or find out more about exciting opportunities for your child at the Canadian Bilingual School.
