School Notes

  • Mackintosh Academy maximizes learning potential and promotes development of the whole child: cognitively, socially, emotionally, creatively, and physically. Our rich IB curriculum incorporates challenging academics with the arts, physical education, languages, and technology.A child who is academically prepared, however, is only partially equipped to make a meaningful contribution to society. We deeply care and are responsive to the variety of factors influencing a gifted child`s social-emotional and interpersonal development. Students need to respect themselves and others, listen actively, think critically, negotiate conflict, build resiliency, take responsibility, and understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.Students in the 21st century are faced with the challenges and opportunities of learning about an interconnected world where knowledge is constantly developing. We prepare students to be active participants in a lifelong journey of learning through inquiry and reflection. We cultivate strong and trusting relationships among students and faculty to support and tend to the optimal growth of each child's unique potential.
