High School (Grades 10-12)
EIA graduates have a 100% university placement rate to the universities and programs of their choice.
This is a great endorsement of the educational program and school culture that has been established at EIA. The senior students are the leaders, and foster the sense of community and pride that all of the students enjoy.
Our students perform far above the provincial average on Provincial Achievement Tests and Diploma Exams as well as in day-to-day coursework. Our teachers and administrators continue to look for ways to engage students deeply in learning.
Getting Ready for University and Beyond
EIA high school promotes a rigorous academic learning program designed to ensure the greatest number of post-secondary choices for graduates. It encourages a greater academic load to prepare students for university; not just to qualify for entrance, but to succeed in their chosen faculties.
EIA also features the Advanced Placement (AP) program. This is the equivalent of a first year university course taken over the last two years of high school. Completion of this course stream allows students to write the College Board exams enabling universities to grant early credits if students have earned an acceptable mark.
Classes are generally 70 minutes long with a low student to teacher ratio because even in high school, students still need interesting learning activities and assignments to reach a diverse population of learning styles, time for discussions and questions, and most importantly, time for the teacher to spend with them individually in every class.
