LEAP - High Potential and Gifted Education

...“The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.”... ― Plutarch

The Learning Enrichment and Acceleration Pathways (LEAP), is a dynamic program introduced to Toronto High School in 2013. The aim of the program is to develop the talent of high potential and gifted students with a particular emphasis on academic achievement.

LEAP provides integrated learning experiences to enable meaningful and deep engagement through project-based learning and future focused skills such as critical thinking, problem solving and collaboration. There is a strategic focus on embedding technology into learning. A 1:1 iPad initiative is a fundamental component of access to technology in the program where students engage in learning through a range of online environments.

LEAP actively promotes excellence in education by providing differentiated curriculum to maximise opportunities for enrichment and acceleration. Students are provided with a range of opportunities enabling them to confidently rise to challenges and develop the skills of self-regulated, independent learning.

The Learning Enrichment and Acceleration Pathways program is the local answer for parents wanting to access a quality high school environment for students currently attending Year 6 Opportunity Classes or applying for a Selective High School Placement.
