What The Linden School says..
Innovative Teaching Philosophy
Girl-Centred Approach | Engaged Learners
Linden’s approach to teaching is girl-centred, incorporating the most current research about how girls learn best throughout their development. We recognize that every Linden student is unique. Our teachers vary their lessons to reach all types of learners – visual, auditory and kinesthetic. At Linden students learn to take ownership of their own learning experiences. Teachers are experts in their fields, who act as facilitators and coaches rather than the ultimate authority. Lectures from the front of the classroom are rare; instead, teachers encourage discussion, debate, and collaborative, hands-on activities.
Intellectual Risk-taking | Increased Confidence and Competence
Linden girls build confidence and competence by learning to take risks and explore new ideas – in the classroom, on the sports field, in a school club, or as a volunteer in their community. We help girls feel comfortable taking risks by creating an environment where a mistake or a project gone awry is a learning experience, not a failure. We help students ask themselves, “What would I do differently next time?” When girls know that making a mistake is not the end of the world, they gain the confidence to expand their boundaries.
