The Harbour School

At The Harbour School, around 10% of the students have more serious difficulties that are best served through our partner The Children’s Institute with one-to-one programming. These children integrate into the mainstream classroom as is appropriate for each child with their one-to-one teacher.

Children at The Harbour School learn to understand and appreciate their own strengths and weaknesses, as well as those of other children. As with adults, in experiential problem-solving teams the performance of all students is increased by diversity of background and talent. Read more …
