From the moment your child walks into their classroom, they are welcomed into an environment where they are empowered to learn and eager to succeed. The Intermediate School curriculum at MacLachlan is balanced with rigor and innovation, while always making connections to the greater world. In addition to the new active learning classrooms, we have implemented a renewed Grade 7 and 8 Mathematics curriculum and have introduced a 21st Century Skills course that provides students with the necessary information technology, research, writing, presentation and study skills required for high school. As your child progresses through each grade level, they are prepared to thrive academically, emotionally and socially. MacLachlan provides a positive and enriching foundation to the lifelong journey of learning.
Our guidance and career education program begins in Grade 7 as a way to help each student gain greater awareness and understanding of themselves, their educational goals and career options. In addition, MacLachlan Diploma Advisors are available throughout the year and formally meet with each Grade 7 and 8 student twice per year to review Individual Pathway Plans (IPP) and provide guidance and support towards their future educational goals.
Please explore our curriculum at each grade level below. You will not only learn about the program goals, but also about the hands-on, inquiry-based learning approach and how it is implemented at MacLachlan College.
