School Stories—On the Journey of Learning

Observations from the Field

Grade 9 Assessment of Mathematics, 2004–2005

This year, EQAO highlights six high schools whose effective strategies for creating successful learning environments reflect the initiatives of many publicly funded schools across the province. The profiles of these schools confirm that, above all, student achievement is fueled by the dedication, energy and collaboration of highly professional staff. One principal speaks for all when commenting, "Our success is the result of a team effort."

Some of the recurring themes that schools identify as factors in addressing the numeracy needs of students include a school-wide focus on numeracy; using EQAO data and resources to guide instruction; connecting mathematical concepts and real-life situations; using technology and manipulatives for enhanced conceptual understanding and problem-solving; in-school learning communities; board support for professional development and programs; networking with feeder schools; remedial help for at-risk learners; and the contribution of the entire school community.

EQAO applauds these schools and all Ontario's educators, who are working diligently to enhance student learning.
