LETTERS FROM THE FACULTY

The faculty and administrative staff at East Hill School would like to extend their welcome to current parents, new parents and website visitors.

Dear East Hill Families 

It is my pleasure, on behalf of the East Hill School Team, to welcome you to our website. 

At East Hill School we strive to maintain a happy and safe and learning environment for our students, one that is conducive to learning and academic success. Our success with our students is achieved only through the collaboration and hard work of the entire school community. 

Our team of teachers and professionals collaborate to guide and support our students through a rich learning environment where all students feel safe to explore, discover and grow to become independent thinkers and learners.

Parents, school staff and community at East Hill School aim to turn dreams into achievements and prepare East Hill students for life-long learning. We encourage respect, critical thinking, tolerance and care within a safe and nurturing environment. We are committed to developing the learner's personal, social and academic capacities. East Hill provides a global open-minded and inquiry-based curriculum with ongoing reflection and assessment that links active classroom experiences to personal, community and global issues. East Hill promotes an educational partnership involving parents, school staff and all communities.This is achieved through our French Immersion Program as well as an Integrated Italian Program. In addition to regular classes, we also offer our students two music periods per week. In addition, the students have weekly sessions in our computer lab where they learn how to work with various software and new technological innovations. Furthermore, each class is equipped with a SMARTBOARD ready to support the ongoing teaching in class. 

East Hill School also has a vibrant parent community, where parents generously volunteer their time in collaboration with our staff members to create fun days filled with everlasting memories. Through Governing Board and Home and School we work together to help our students face the challenges and celebrate the accomplishments. Together we aim to nourish the passion of learning in each child.

I invite you to explore our website. Enjoy a virtual tour created by our students. One visit and you will be convinced! Come discover a team of teachers, specialists, parents and students that are proud to be part of a vibrant learning community that fosters personal academic success and self-esteem.

Dear Parents, 

If your searches and inquiries regarding schooling for your child have led you here, welcome! You are in the right place. By choosing East Hill School, you are choosing an institution that is continuously evolving in order to meet the needs of its students. 

At East Hill School, we strive to foster well-rounded students who, throughout their time with us, grow academically and socially. By choosing East Hill, you are entrusting your child to a vast community of devoted professionals who value a challenging academic curriculum and a thriving school culture. Students are encouraged to take ownership of their learning in an environment that prioritizes safety and happiness.  

I believe that it is essential to provide students with opportunities to connect concepts learned in class to the real world. When students’ learning mirrors their reality, knowledge is assimilated more easily and more effectively. East Hill continuously develops existing programs and implements new, hands-on initiatives. This fosters responsible, caring and productive members of society, which ties in perfectly with our school motto: ‘Learning for our Future’.

Furthermore, I also believe that student success is guaranteed when there is a strong relationship between parents, staff, students and community representatives. Your child’s experience can only be strengthened through ongoing communication. 

I consider myself extremely lucky to have been appointed as Vice-Principal at East Hill School. I look forward to meeting and working with all of you. Please do not hesitate to contact  us with any comments, questions or concerns. Together, we can make our 21st year, and the years to come, the best yet! 

Jessica Monti
