What is Matrix?

The Matrix Program is an academically challenging, fun and technologically enhanced way of learning in the classroom. The program places an emphasis on students receiving high level of academics and is enriched through projects, assignments and an innovative use technology.

We believe the learning should go on both inside and outside the classroom. Thus, field trips and out of school activities play a big role. Matrix trips include Quebec City, Ottawa, Boston, New York, Washington, camp in the Laurentians and outings to theaters and museums among others.

Students must perform community service along with being active in school life. They are expected to be leaders and role models in the school.

Students use personal laptops inside and outside the classroom to enhance their learning. Teachers are trained in using technology in the classroom in order to let our students learn and create using 21st Century tools.
