Rainbow board high school virtual info evenings coming up in January and February

Eighth graders and their parents/guardians are encouraged to log on to rainbowschools.ca to access the Rainbow District School Board’s Virtual Information Nights for High Schools.

Sessions will be live or pre-recorded and can be accessed on the schools’ websites. All students are welcome to participate, regardless of which elementary school they currently attend.

The Rainbow District School Board has released a guide for students and parents entitled Making the Transition – Finding Your Way from Eighth to Ninth Grade, with information about course codes, study levels, schedules and tips. The guide can be accessed online. Hard copies are available by emailing info@rainbowschools.ca.

For a presentation on Making the Transition, visit rainbowschools.ca or visit Eastlink OnDemand.

Rainbow District School Board high schools offer exceptional opportunities in the arts, athletics and academics, in both English and French, in all program tracks — independent living, work, apprenticeship, college and university, according to a press release.

The board also has four specialized programs – the Arts Education Program, the Science and Technology Education Program (STEP), the Innovative Integrated Technology Program (InIT), and the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme. Buses to these programs are offered to students within Greater Sudbury.

Rainbow High Schools offer a Specialized High Skills Program (SHSM) in 13 sectors. SHSMs are specialized, Department of Education accredited programs that allow students to focus their learning on a specific economic sector while meeting the requirements for an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). SHSM assists students in their transition from high school to vocational training, college, university or the workplace.

SHSMs are available in agriculture, arts, culture, business, construction, energy, environment, forestry, health and wellness, hospitality, tourism, information and communication technology, manufacturing, mining, sports, and transportation. Each SHSM is a package of 8 to 10 courses in a specific field. Students learn on the job and can earn valuable industry certifications.

Students acquire sector-specific skills and knowledge in engaging in professional learning environments, preparing in a focused manner for graduation and post-secondary education, training or employment.
