Learning Resources

Our work with Northwest School students, including those with learning differences, is grounded in the philosophy that all of our students want to learn, have a natural curiosity and thirst for knowledge, have learning strengths, and, with the right support, can succeed in our academic program. We welcome students from diverse academic backgrounds and with different learning styles/needs.

Our mission to graduate students with multiple perspectives is accomplished, in part, because our students bring to their learning different ways of seeing the world. Support for learning is integrated throughout our curriculum and takes many forms

The Learning Resources Department is made up of Director of Learning Services Hillary French and Learning Resources Coordinator Rae Page. Hillary is a school psychologist who works directly with grades 10-12, along with overseeing the program. Rae works in grades 6-9, supporting teachers and students.
