Building on our commitment to meet the learning needs of all our students and to experiment with innovative programming, we added four new courses to the CDS curriculum this year.
Appealing to students with an interest in applying their understanding through hands-on projects, we have included two courses in applied technology: Communications Technology and Computer Engineering. For the significant number of our students interested in pursuing future studies in business, we have offered a new course in International Business.
Finally, we have also included an innovative Grade 12 interdisciplinary course that is team taught by four teachers and organized around topics connected to The Big Ideas: On the Nature of Change. This course is project based and driven by the students’ own learning interests. It encourages students to think critically and to make connections between subject areas as diverse as music, science, technology, philosophy, literary studies and social science.
