We recently hosted our After 8 Open House Night, showcasing our dynamic high school program including special programming for CyberArts and Gifted. If you missed this opportunity and would like more information, please contact Student Services at (416) 395-3192 #20040 to arrange a visit. Students who do not live in our area can apply to attend DMCI through optional attendance. Forms can be found here or request a hard copy at your current school. Currently the CyberArts program is conducting interviews for this specialized program.
Our computer science program and programming club has created a new contest and self-development portal to help students everywhere learn more about programming and test their skills. Programming Learning Portal. As well, our secondary co-op, technology and business programs have made links in Experiential Learning to Dual-Credit programs at Humber, York, Seneca and Centennial. This means many of our students have have already been working on college-level courses while still in high school as part of this special TDSB opportunity.
DMCI students have just been confirmed as completing and passing over 85 college courses while participating fully in their regular course load. These courses are special opportunities offered for enhancement of our existing programs.
Students have been going on lots of exciting and curriculum-relevant field trips, and school teams and clubs are in full action. Recent field trips have included Studio 180 Theatre, the Ontario Science Centre, the Royal Winter Fair, the Honda Assembly Plant in Alliston, IKEA, the ROM, and many more. We are also participating in the Sears Drama Festival this year.
We also had our Post-secondary Pathways fair where all the universities, colleges and other opportunities were presented by delegates for students to be thinking about their future choices. This is the Post-Secondary Pathways Presentation from Guidance for this year. We’re hoping that our students have done their research and asked the reps relevant questions that will ease their stress levels and help them make informed and confident decisions. We had more than 30 university, college, apprenticeship and GAP experience reps. It was a fantastic day and the start of dreams and plans for many of our students to find out more.
