In January-February 2015, KPR held focus group meetings with secondary students, parents and staff from our smaller high schools and their elementary feeder schools.
These consultations explored the variety of methods small schools are using to support programming for students. The groups also discussed how low enrolment secondary schools can be supported in the future.

Grades 7-10 students have free, after-hours math help available on-line, thanks to Homework Help.

Every Sunday to Thursday, from 5:30-9:30 p.m., students can get live, one-on-one tutoring from an Ontario teacher. Lessons and tips also are posted for students to see at any time.
When people think about the skilled trades, several immediately spring to mind – electrician, plumber, welder, carpenter, for example.
