Ontarios

Students who are leaving secondary school upon reaching the age of eighteen without having met the requirements for the Ontario Secondary School Diploma or the Ontario Secondary School Certificate may be granted a Certificate of Accomplishment. The Certificate of Accomplishment may be a useful means of recognizing achievement for students who plan to take certain kinds of further training, or who plan to find employment directly after leaving school. The Certificate of Accomplishment is to be accompanied by the student’s Ontario Student Transcript. For students who have an Individual Education Plan (IEP), a copy of the IEP may be included. Students who return to school to complete additional credit and non-credit courses (including courses with modified or alternative expectations in special education programs) will have their transcript updated accordingly but will not be issued a new Certificate of Accomplishment. The Ontario Secondary School Diploma or Ontario Secondary School Certificate will be granted when the returning student has fulfilled the appropriate requirements.

Students must pass the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test, which is administered annually in March. Passing the test is a requirement of the OSSD. Students who do not pass may take the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Course (OSSLC). The school principal has the discretion to allow a student to enrol in the OSSLC before he or she has had a second opportunity to take the OSSLT, if the principal determines that it is in the best educational interests of the student. Students who pass the course are considered to have met the literacy graduation requirement. The result is recorded on the student transcript. In the case of accommodations, special provisions, deferrals and exemptions, the principal will contact the EQAO directly to apply for them if the need arises.

Advanced Placement

Advanced Placement (AP) is a program in the United States and Canada created by the College Board which offers college-level curricula and examinations to high school students. American colleges and universities may grant placement and course credit to students who obtain high scores on the examinations.

Student Success Guidance

Assistance will be given to students by helping them to understand their academic strengths and weaknesses, choosing appropriate courses and in making application to post-secondary institutions.

Additional Support

Assistance will be given to students by helping them to understand their academic strengths and weaknesses, choosing appropriate courses and in making application to post-secondary institutions.

Education support for parents

Parents and students may request a learning pathway form at any time to complete and review with the principal or designate. They may also request to review curriculum documents, course descriptions and prerequisites and discuss their implications.

Education and Career Planning Supports

When students begin at JIHS, they will sit with the principal or the principal’s designate to discuss their educational goals and become familiarized with the learning pathway form to best plan their educational direction. Upon completion of their studies, they will again sit with the principal or designate to prepare a personalized transition plan either for their home-school, or post-secondary directions (university, college or the workplace).

for English Language Learners

At JIHS, teachers provide learning opportunities to enable English language learners to develop a proficiency in English. These opportunities are integrated into the curriculum in all subject areas. Teachers provide instructional programs which address students’ different levels of proficiency in English and help these students adjust to a new linguistic, cultural, and educational environment.
