Faculty Mission Statement

“The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows”  Sydney J Harris

The HSIE and Languages faculty is dedicated to teaching young leaners how human societies change over time and explore the rich languages and cultures of the past and present. The courses we offer strive to place the present into context, to cultivate students' intellectual curiosity, and to raise aspirations. The faculty takes seriously its responsibility to teach critical thinking and communication skills at the same time as imparting knowledge necessary for students' development.

Ample opportunity exist for students to achieve their potential through a variety of extension and enrichment activities which have been incorporated into all teaching programs. Our faculty also has a strong focus on development of our students’ literacy, research and critical thinking skills.
