Principles of Accounts is a Business Education subject intended to provide students with an understanding of the fundamental principles, procedures and terms related to accounting and to prepare students for entry level employment in financial record keeping. It also provides a foundation on which to build should the student wish to pursue further studies in the subject area. With a solid background in basic accounting learned in Junior years, students will be able to utilize their learning to appreciate the importance of accounting computer programs in business. During their Senior year, students will be introduced to QuickBooks Accounting in both theory and practical form. This will prepare students who wish to pursue studies in accounting as well as those who wish to start working in the business field.

Science education aims to develop scientific literacy among students to prepare them to be informed and participative citizens. It prepares students to make judgments and decisions on the applications of scientific knowledge that may have social, health, or environmental impacts. By studying science students will develop an understanding of the world, built on current scientific theories. Students will learn that Science involves particular processes and ways of developing and organizing knowledge that is constantly changing and evolving. They will use scientific knowledge and skills to make informed decisions about communication, application, and implications of science as these relate to their own lives and cultures and to the sustainability of the environment.
The mission of the Humanities Department is to create global citizens equipped to assess received opinion and make independent judgments, who are aware of the past, present and future of the world around them. Through questioning, investigation and critical thinking, students learn to understand the past by developing their historical skills. They develop essential skills of identification, analysis, and evaluation through examining historical evidence and sources with a critical eye. They are investigating issues affecting the world and people’s lives, in the past, now and in the future.
All lessons across the Humanities track focuses on developing students knowledge and understanding, communication skills, inquiry and information handling, as well as interpretation and evaluation. Through engaging topics, students can develop their skills and knowledge concurrently, and use the skills that they learn across their three Humanities subjects.
We believe that a traditional approach to knowledge and skills development allows students to have the best possible chance to feel confident in their abilities, and will give aid to success for further study. All members of the Humanities Department are lifelong learners, committed to continuing professional development, through both internal and external opportunities. We focus on learning from each other, and from other departments, through learning walks and frequent informal observations, to allow the opportunity to develop our practice and support the development of others.
