THE OLIVE HIGH
Form 7 - Form 12
As children enter adolescence, they stay grounded by focusing on core values.
The Olive High School students are growing and changing physically, intellectually, socially and emotionally. They are forging an identity and beginning to wonder about their place in the world. Educators at the High School help students continue to thrive as they enter adolescence. Each year, students of a class are matched with a mother teacher who serves as the primary contact for that student and family, providing invaluable support.
STUDENT LIFE AT HIGH SCHOOL
VALUES TO LIVE BY
Our program emphasizes five core values for High School students to live by:
Academic and personal honesty;
Acceptance of others;
Respect for peers, adults and the school facilities and environment;
Responsibility toward self, others, the school and the surrounding community;
Trust within the school community.
These values color every aspect of students' day-to-day experience: classroom learning, athletic, performing art endeavors and co-curricular clubs and activities. Not only do students continue to set the highest standards for themselves – they also develop a greater sense of social responsibility.
GLOBAL CITIZENS & COMMUNITY LEADERS
Adolescents at The Olive High develop a deeper understanding of themselves as global citizens and community leaders, in and out of class. A seventh form student might craft well-reasoned arguments about global healthcare access for her social science subject. An eighth Form student in the environment club might take action to help make his community greener. A ninth/tenth grader might lead a team to victory on the shooting range – or in a debate tournament. Whatever path students choose, they are guided by solid core values, a strong sense of purpose and a commitment to bettering themselves and their world.
EXCELLING IN & OUT OF THE CLASSROOM
Adolescence is an exciting period for children to discover what they can achieve.
We provide numerous opportunities for students to excel as scholars, athletes and artists. At The Olive High, students are not only exposed to and prepared for the highest learning levels expected of a learner within the CBSE frame work, but also are trained to graduate with a clear sense of their personal goals and a determination to make a difference.
The Olive students delight in learning and achievement for their own sake.
