Whitby SchoolAcademic Rigor, Redefined for the 21st Century
Schools that associate academic rigor with test taking, hours of homework and rote memorization of facts are preparing students for success in the last century. Rigor at Whitby is much more expansive as we provide our students with opportunities to explore real-world concepts and issues, challenge assumptions, think critically and acquire skills that they will need to apply throughout their educational and future professional journeys. A Whitby education is about allowing students to define success on their own terms by inspiring their love of learning, broadening their sense of responsibility, developing their critical thinking skills and empowering them to take action in a global community. These are the ideals that we value and they inform our teaching, learning and curriculum development each and every day.
