Ms. Stevenson, one of our guidance counsellors, has put together two tables that explain the courses required for the post-secondary ‘pathways’ to college and university. She also prepared a chart that shows the various patterns in Mathematics from Grade 9 to Grade 12. She shared the tables and chart with students in some classes and suggests that parents might find the information helpful when discussing course choices with their children. In addition, for the benefit of parents of students in Grade 9, I have attached the Ministry of Education poster that shows graduation diploma requirements.
Please keep in mind that the provincial standard for achievement is Level 3 and Level 4. That represents final marks from 70-100%. If you child’s marks are significantly below that level in academic/university/mixed level courses, then continuing at that level will require much greater effort and assistance. If you are in doubt about the correct level of study for your child in one or more subjects, please consult your child’s guidance counsellor.
With the information in these documents, and with advice from a counsellor as needed, I am confident you and your child will make wise course choices for the coming school year.
