Innovation needs structure that supports innovation. We’ve recognized for years that our structures (timetable, physical organization of schools, curricular organization of learning material) can either facilitate teachers working together, or isolate us. With that in mind, at Johnston Heights we are developing timetables that allow our teachers to get to know our students more deeply, to work together more closely on student issues, and to have more opportunity to link learning experiences across traditional subject areas. Our first attempt at this was our Multidisciplinary Learning Project.

Currently we are revising our Junior Program, starting with our Grade 8 Program. The timetable that we are using this year is outlined in this link.

In the coming year we are planning the same for the Grade 9 Program.
