The learning environment at Villa Maria is based on fostering mutual respect and courtesy. This means that respect is emphasized in all interactions including with peers, teachers, all school personnel, and also for the school’s environment, materials and campus.
This is the reason why Villa Maria revises annually its school rules in order to ensure that we offer an environment that is healthy, welcoming and ideal for the personal development of each student.
A copy of the school’s rules is given to all parents at the beginning of the school year and remains available on the school’s portal at all times for both students and parents.
Students are required to fully participate in and actively contribute to all classroom activities. All students must invest the appropriate amount of time and effort inside and outside the classroom to meet the established learning and performance expectations.
Students must pay special attention to all written and verbal instructions, being sure to understand and follow them. Students are responsible for bringing the appropriate materials and resources to class and are expected to maintain their course work, binders, and portfolios in an orderly manner.
Students are encouraged to think about what they are learning and to ask questions to increase their understanding. Students are encouraged to be self-aware as learners and to consider feedback from peers and teachers when revising work.
