Learning Assistance Program

Saint Pius X has a Learning Assistance program led by a full-time resource teacher.  Academic instruction at Saint Pius X is presented in all learning modalities, enabling students with various learning styles and ranges of academic capabilities to achieve success and to excel in the classroom.  Classroom teachers employ differentiated learning strategies including direct instruction, flexible grouping, guided reading groups, cooperative learning centres, word study, music, audio-visual aids, science experiments and hands-on math activities utilizing physical and virtual manipulatives.

Teachers are aware of the special needs of the students and individual attention is provided to support student achievement.  Saint Pius X works diligently to ensure that students receive the attention and care they need to be successful.  Parents, teachers, and the resource teacher meet regularly to develop and follow through on individualized education plans, giving each student access to all available resources.
