Academic Information

At its root, educate means to lead forth.
At King’s-Edgehill School, we are committed to helping students identify their talents and potential, and develop a personalized plan to get them where they dream of going.
An excellent education must stimulate the mind – and provide students with the support they need to succeed. To accomplish this, we divide our students in the Junior School level into two streams – Academic and Honours.
Our Junior School Director uses a number of personalized factors to place students in the stream where they can be most successful. These factors include entrance tests, examination results, report card marks and other objective bench marks.
In the Senior School (Grades 10-12), students can opt for Honours' Courses by subject domains, a system known as 'setting' rather than 'streaming'. That a student has not been in the Honours' Class in the Junior School does not prevent him or her from attempting the enriched classes later. Determination of Honours' Classes rests very much upon student performance and teacher recommendation. Mobility, of course, is the essential factor so that if placement is proven to be misjudged, then the student can be moved to an appropriate class without loss of progress.
With the demands of the International Baccalaureate Programme, with which Honours' Courses are associated in the Senior School, students are advised to enter their advanced study groups (Honours' Courses) in Grade 10. This will allow students the optimum amount of IB preparation time and the opportunity to participate in the co-curricular programme, so important in engendering an all-round record of achievement in the competition for university placement.
