A Leader In Academic Excellence

A Leader in Academic Excellence

Our leading academic program provides comprehensive coverage of the BC curriculum and augments the students’ learning experiences with additional learning materials and programs that ensure a balanced and enriched educational package that will give our children the tools to maintain relevancy and competency with their peers not only locally but abroad as well.

 

Through small class sizes and individual learning trajectories carefully tailored to the needs of each child, Newbridge Academy strives to help each student achieve his or her maximum academic potential.

Mathematics Program

The centerpiece of our mathematics program is mathematical problem solving. In their daily lessons students are encouraged to question, experiment with, and be curious about mathematical relationships and how these can be noticed and applied in our daily lives. Students are guided to extrapolate what they know and then use their mathematical powers, such as critical thinking, reasoning, conjecturing, proving, and visualizing to apply their knowledge to a novel situation.  Through problem solving our students build their skills (such as computational fluency, spatial visualization, data analysis, measurement, estimation, algebraic manipulation, use of mathematical tools), concepts (such as understanding of  numerical, geometric, algebraic, probabilistic, statistical ideas and relationships) , processes (such as reasoning, communication, modelling, applications, connections), attitudes (such as interest, confidence, appreciation, perseverance), and metacognition (such as habits of mind, monitoring of one’s own thinking, making a plan and tracking one’s own progress, self-regulation of learning).

Goal

Newbridge Academy’s mathematics curriculum meets and in many ways enriches the British Columbia mathematics curriculum through the implementation of the Singapore Math Programme. Our students are expected to achieve the following goals: 

  • Develop a deep understanding of both factual (content) and process-based (curricular competencies) knowledge; each of these forms of knowledge are needed to solve complex problems.

  • Reason mathematically using their understanding of number, pattern, spatial relationships, and analysis of data in order to solve a variety of problems at their developmental stage. 

  • Become financially literate and able to make sound financial decisions 

  • Use flexible, effective, and accurate strategies to analyze and solve increasingly complex problems.

  • Explore how mathematics complements and includes other ways of knowing, such as First Peoples knowledge and other world views.

  • Reference for First People’s way of learning Math http://mathcatcher.irmacs.sfu.ca/story/small-number-counts-100 

  • Develop perseverance and confidence to apply mathematical thinking in various abstract and concrete contexts.

  • View and navigate their world with a mathematical perspective.

  • Develop the ability for abstract thinking, including the critical thinking skills necessary for understanding global issues in society.

Arts Program

Newbridge Academy offers art lessons that teach children a variety of artistic endeavors such visual arts, and drama. Students learn different techniques when creating a work of art, storytelling through dramatic re-enactment, and music theory through songs. Students will also learn about First People’s artwork and the influences that First People's art has around British Columbia.

Goal

Students will be learning art, music, and drama regularly throughout the year. Our expectation is that students will develop their artistic talents alongside their desire to express themselves through a variety of creative outlets.

  • Broaden their cultural life through access to literature, art, music and theatre in another language. 

Newbridge Academy is the first English-Mandarin Bilingual Independent School in B.C., Canada. Mandarin Language Arts is one of the main courses at Newbridge Academy. We use the latest edition Chinese textbooks which all the schools in China are using. Except learning the language itself, we also teach our students Chinese Culture, Chinese songs & dance and Chinese arts through class activities. 

Goal

Our students have Mandarin classes every day and we are expecting our students to use Mandarin as their second language and develop excellent listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.
