The Roberts Smart Centre operates a program for students who have demonstrated that they are not able to be successful in a regular classroom due to mental health concerns, learning disabilities, and/or poor attendance. Transition support is provided.
The classroom has one M.F. McHugh teacher, and one Child and Youth Worker from Roberts Smart. Students in our program are working towards meeting the Course expectations outlined in the Ontario Curriculum. All students have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) created by the classroom teacher in collaboration with the youth’s parent/guardian. In order to focus on Social Emotional Learning, all students in our program have Alternative pages in their IEP which focus on Learning Skills. Students each have learning plans that are catered to their strengths.
students and staff are provided additional support from a McHugh Transitions Teacher, to ensure a safe and successful transition.
