Our school is unique in the Calgary area, because students receive specialized instruction by a variety of teachers. Teachers at Maple Leaf Academy are certified, qualified and experienced ESL teachers. Teachers and members of our staff represent several different cultures and languages. All are focused on assisting our students to achieve marked improvement in their English language skills.
A typical day at our school could see a student instructed by five different professionals. This is of benefit to the students because it allows them to improve their language skills by listening to more than one style of instruction. This guarantees that students will receive planned, specialized, high-tempo instruction each and every day they attend our school.
Maple Leaf Academy's small class sizes (15:1 student to teacher ratio) enable our staff to interact with students in a quick and effective manner. Our small class sizes provide students and staff alike with the ideal atmosphere to create an interactive and cooperative learning environment.
The addition of multi-media technology to our school ensures that every student will receive current, cutting edge methods of instruction. This technology allows students to talk into the computer and for the computer to help students analyze where their language problems lie. Multi-media technology greatly increases the rate at which students improve their listening, sound discrimination, and pronunciation skills.
