Welcome to Middle School — Where life’s possibilities start to mesh with your own.

Grades 6 to 8 are years of immense growth and change for students as they jump from Lower School and prepare for the transition to our Senior School. Creative and caring teachers provide a rich and challenging curriculum that is geared towards developing minds of adolescence, making Middle School an exciting place in which to explore, learn, and grow.

At this stage, students are ready for the challenges of a more demanding curriculum. The academic program is rigorous and inquiry-based, developing the ability to think critically, learn independently, and communicate clearly. HTS provides time outside of the academic timetable to allow students to fill their toolbox, follow their interests, or seek support during Student Directed Time. From study skills to organization, debate to coding, investment club to wellness and leadership, Student Directed Time is designed to complement the educational excellence in the classroom. 

As students begin to broaden their horizons, taking advantage of leadership opportunities and assuming more responsibility within the school community, they benefit from increased individual attention. Beginning in Grade 6, each student is assigned a faculty advisor, to facilitate goal-setting, organization and prioritization, and provide consistent guidance and support.

Highlights of Middle School

Specialized Teachers

The following subjects have  teachers who have advanced qualifications. Students are offered a full rotation of classes in:

  • Art
  • Design Technology and Innovation
  • Drama
  • English
  • French
  • Mathematics

Leadership Opportunities and Experiential Education

There are many opportunities for leadership roles in the Middle School. Some are formal positions, such as House Captains and Middle School Leaders, while others develop over the course of the year. Students are encouraged to seek leadership opportunities that will challenge them. In addition, students are encouraged to volunteer for various committees that deliver student life programming.

Each year, students have opportunities for leadership and experiential education. In previous years, our students participated in trips to:

  • Bark Lake Leadership Centre
  • CAIS Leadership Conference
  • Quebec City
  • Space Camp at the NASA Education Centre
  • Camp Wanakita
  • Kilcoo Camp

Interdisciplinary Projects

Middle School students, using the framework of the Rotman I-Think program, blending curriculum and real-world problem solving, work on projects with local companies. These projects range in topic and all students have the opportunity to present their solution to the company that they are working with. These projects help students not only develop key creative problem-solving and collaboration skills, but also help students to feel a deeper connection to their local community while having a meaningful experience.

Reach Ahead Credit: Exploring Design Technologies

Our Exploring Design Technologies (TIJ1O) reach ahead credit course was introduced to our Middle School students in 2018. The program has been a success with over 60 students currently participating, achieving certification in nearly 100 modules in a variety of topics including coding, vector graphics, laser cutting, 3D printing, sewing machine basics and working with microcontrollers. What makes the program exceptionally innovative is its non-standard scheduling, student path options and direct alignment with future work skills.

Sports Teams

The following are the competitive-level sports teams in the Middle School:

  • Basketball
  • Cross-country
  • Field hockey
  • Rugby
  • Soccer
  • Softball
  • Track and Field

Welcome to Senior School — Building Compassion and Character for What’s Next.

In Senior School, HTS students are immersed in a vibrant school experience, with advanced learning and leadership programs designed to prepare them for life at university and beyond.

The HTS Senior School has a long-standing reputation for academic excellence.

As an Apple Distinguished School, we use technology to enhance this learning and make it more relevant for the 21st-century learner. Our teachers are committed to helping our students realize their potential and exceed their own expectations.

Outside the classroom, our students are encouraged to follow their passion. Athletics is a place where students learn to work as a team, stay physically active, and build character. Our arts program encourages a love of the arts and growth through our many bands and ensembles, our annual school production, and our vibrant art program. Our clubs and societies offer the opportunity for students to engage in other passions from CAD Club to the Model United Nations.

Technology Integration — Technology helps us get there, but curiosity leads the way.

Effective use of technology in classrooms does not just happen because the technology exists. It must be used in ways that will enhance teaching and learning, and not merely replace an existing practice that could be done without technology. At HTS, we have educational technology experts that work side by side with our teachers to help them navigate this process so that they make successful and sustainable choices.

Working with individual teachers or teaching teams, our technology integrators collaborate on every aspect of planning technology-focussed assignments and projects. They also work directly with teachers in their classrooms to support the process in action.

Our digital book, A Community of Learners, is an excellent look at what it means to integrate technology in the classroom at HTS. The videos, images, and text clearly illustrate the powerful ways in which technology is being leveraged at our school. It is evident that we are not merely using the tools because they look shiny and impressive, but rather that we have used them to broaden the scope of learners, help our students think more deeply, be more creative, and work more collaboratively.

Innovation & Design Technology Co-Curricular Options

HTS students have multiple learning pathways that are embedded into our program to maximize learning and student empowerment. The learning pathways ensure that every student has experiences that are unique to HTS, and the use of technology enables and enriches this for every student. Technology has also fostered a creative, global and connected classroom experience. HTS is committed to developing innovative environments for our students to grow and develop in all the digital competencies they will need to thrive, while maintaining a positive and ethical digital identity.

Our Virtual Learning Hub team works as an extension to our daytime program; they truly are partners with our classroom teachers.

MENTAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING

Mental Health Support
Over the last year, we have been developing a Mental Health Strategy for HTS that has been co-constructed with staff, students and the expertise and guidance of Ms Erika Rukin, social worker. Our students’ mental health is critical to their overall well-being and academic success. We have adopted a three-tiered approach at HTS to support our students’ overall well-being and put together a team led by our Dean of Students, Ms Melanie van de Water, and supported by Assistant Division Heads and Ms Tracy Howard. Additionally, at different tiers of support our Student Success Counsellors play a key partnership in working with students, families and community health partners to ensure our students are receiving the care they need to thrive and live a healthy and joyful life.
We are currently hiring a social worker to join our HTS staff to be a support, mentor and coach for students and staff.
