Study period runs from 3:10 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day for Grades 1 to 9. It is a time when students may do assigned homework or receive extra help. The classroom environment must be conducive to these pursuits. Once a student is in the study room, he/she is obliged to remain there until 3:30 p.m. Students not attending study period leave the school at 3:10 p.m.
A reasonable amount of homework from Kindergarten onwards promotes self-discipline, reinforces concepts covered in the classroom, and serves as preparation for future lessons. We aim to provide 10 to 15 minutes of homework per night in Kindergarten and a further 10 to 15 minutes per night for each successive grade to junior high, when the amount should level off at about 90 minutes per night.
