Small Class Sizes

Our strong focus on relationship building is fostered through our small class sizes where students are connected with their teachers and their peers. We keep our classroom group size limited thereby allowing individuals the opportunity to learn from each other’s similarities, differences and points of view.

Leadership, Character Development & Citizenship

While academic performance is important, it is only one aspect of our goal to develop well-rounded students. To support this goal, character development and citizenship are integrated into our curriculum. Our thoughtfully designed program allows students to learn and develop through community service initiatives and various character-building endeavours including community volunteer experiences, character-focused classroom discussions, and numerous leadership opportunities.

Exploring Interests & Passions with Extracurriculars

The ways and methods people gain knowledge, not only in their formative school years but also throughout their lifetimes, are changing rapidly. We believe in expanding and increasing every student’s opportunity for self-discovery and exploration. Students must feel empowered to take the lead from the beginning; early in their school lives, they are encouraged to seek out answers and learn the core skills necessary to become lifetime learners. Rundle encourages students to take their learning to new levels and in new directions by offering extracurricular activities for all grades that extend beyond the conventional curriculum and beyond the regular school year. Rundle engages our students’ minds, helping them to discover their passions and potential. Through rigorous academic programs, exciting and challenging physical activities, campus and community events and co-curricular opportunities, students have every opportunity to build their character and demonstrate their individuality. Through athletics, fine arts, travel, clubs, leadership opportunities, participation in research, cultural exploration and more, the rich Rundle experience enhances learning and expands students’ perspectives of the world around them — and the wealth of possibilities ahead.
