Secondary School

 

At the high school level, our program is anchored on the twin principals of academic achievement and personal development. Students are encouraged to master the academic disciplines as well as the individual qualities that will prepare them for mature and productive citizenship. The focus in the high school is on the importance of nurturing self-discipline, critical thinking skills, problem solving, and teamwork. In order to help students reach this goal as individuals and as a collective, each grade is guided by a level adviser whose primary role is to offer guidance and leadership.  Beyond the classroom, a wide variety of co-curricular activities also help students to develop self-confidence, a sense of responsibility, strong community spirit and lasting friendships.

 

 

Language, the cornerstone of a Kuper education

 


While the secondary school curriculum is offered in English, fluency in French remains a priority and the program is tailored to suit a student’s individual proficiency. Secondary IV students who are sufficiently proficient may complete the secondary French requirement one year early and write the DELF exam (Diplome d'etudes en langue francaise). Upon successful completion of this exam they are granted a diploma by the Ministry of Education of France. Many of our students enter high school already knowing several languages and graduate mastering even more.
