At Stanley Bay we recognise that every child is unique and learns in different ways. We provide personalised learning programmes which allow students to take control of their learning.
Personalised learning means that every child;
- understands what they are learning and why.
- takes ownership and drives their own learning.
- co-constructs the curriculum and their learning environment.
We believe that every student deserves the best opportunities to succeed both academically and socially. By offering a concept based curriculum students learn how to learn through contexts that are highly engaging, relevant and authentic. We recognise that literacy and numeracy skills are the foundation of all learning and are central to all teaching programmes.
Our innovative curriculum prepares students for their future and not our past. We focus on STEM subjects which means educating students in four specific disciplines; science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The STEM principles alongside higher order thinking skills are integrated into the curriculum in a way that students are able to embrace all aspects of the NZ Curriculum, whilst at the same time preparing them to be life-long learners.
Stanley Bay School is an exciting place to learn, we have a long history of high academic achievement and take pride that students leave our school with a sense of curiosity, wonder, drive and passion for learning.
