Our teachers understand how girls learn. They are dedicated to bringing out the best in each girl, by encouraging her strengths and providing support in areas that are more difficult for her. While our programs are demanding and our expectations high, the atmosphere is co-operative and supportive. It is an environment in which every girl feels free to believe in herself, to speak out and take academic risks.
Balmoral Hall Junior School welcomes students in an atmosphere of encouragement and challenge. We provide students with a trans-disciplinary curriculum that is based on research and practices from a range of international systems, incorporated in the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. Junior School builds the foundation where children are guided to become independent learners and critical thinkers. Students are confident and empowered to achieve their personal best.
Balmoral Hall School is committed to preparing girls and young women to be competent, confident leaders in an ever-changing world. The Primary Years Programme encompasses the balanced growth of the developing child while fostering the hearts and minds of students. In addition to a rigorous, inquiry based academic curriculum, the programme addresses social, physical, emotional and cultural needs.
The BH Junior School strives to nurture the growth of a caring, responsible citizen with an increased understanding of the world around them; one who is able to think critically and independently.
These learning experiences promote the ideals and qualities of an “internationally-minded person” who strives to be knowledgeable, principled and open minded.
The Middle School welcomes students from Grades 6, 7 and 8. This is a special time. The girls’ lives are filled with developmental changes and new academic challenges.
Our Middle School helps girls extend their knowledge of essential skills as they develop a sense of identity and become aware of their abilities and interests. Our academic program, athletics and the arts promote artistic and academic excellence.
The academic areas are aligned to provide continuity and a progressive build up of good learning habits, self-confidence and thorough understanding of the academic subject areas. Best practices for girls underpin the learning at each developmental level ensuring students achieve their personal best.
Our academic requirements encourage each student to design a rigorous program compatible with her abilities, interests and goals. Qualified students may further enrich their programs by taking advanced and accelerated programs, as well as the Advanced Placement courses in Grades 11 and 12 in a variety of subjects. Balmoral Hall School’s challenging curriculum spans classical studies to twenty-first century technology.
Our comprehensive program includes traditional academic areas, athletics and arts education. Students have the opportunity to learn new languages, to express their ideas creatively through the visual and performing arts, and to develop a healthy lifestyle through our athletic program.
Balmoral Hall School’s female-centered environment promotes self-reliance, confidence and the freedom to learn. Our graduates are strong, independent women who have worked hard, formed lasting friendships and learned to care about the broader world. They are destined to make a difference!
