Our teachers are highly-qualified, multi-talented and dedicated educators who play an integral role in fostering our vibrant learning community. Chosen not only for the high caliber of their teaching credentials, our teachers possess personal and professional qualities that contribute to the level of excellence and dynamic energy of the education we offer at MacLachlan. The strong relationships that are so often forged between MacLachlan students and teachers are a source of pride for us, and evidence of the high quality of our faculty.
Our holistic measure of involvement is demonstrated through our teachers’ specialist skills often applied to both the Lower and Upper School levels. Their unwavering commitment engenders the ethos of community and positive caring which we continually strive to create at MacLachlan.
MacLachlan provides enhanced professional development opportunities to our teachers and recognizes and celebrates their many achievements. Although our students continually produce high academic results, we are not complacent and continually strive to maintain the highest level of teaching excellence. These opportunities unite our teaching community through their passion for teaching and learning.
As a matter of fact, we are proud to have hired several exceptional MacLachlan alumni as faculty members, a testament to the MacLachlan student-teacher experience.
What we strive to instill in our students…
Our goal is to foster a deeper level of thinking and encourage the development of each individual student. Our approach in learning goes far beyond just giving and receiving knowledge. We encourage our students to challenge theories, concepts and facts and to develop individual strategies of inquiry and communication.
At every grade level, we compel students to express themselves with thoughtful intent, to be inclusive, to foster and encourage a global outlook, and to promote social responsibility. We strive to enhance, strengthen and enrich each students’ educational experience and to help them reach their full potential with integrity and character.
It takes a village…
We strive to enrich our students’ lives, but we also understand the importance of parent, teacher and community collaboration. We encourage open communication and parental involvement throughout a child’s educational journey.
