The Learning Support Program (LSP) is a two year program designed for students who need additional support in the four core subject areas. These four subjects: English, Social Studies, Science and Math are all adapted in order for the student to be successful. Students will also have an additional skills support block where learning strategies are taught to enhance their abilities in all subject areas.
This is a program that builds support around the student through the use of technology and student tutors along with the additional time granted to them to complete the task. In addition, the program focuses on building confidence and self-esteem.
The program is limited to 15 students in grades 8 and 9. Students will be integrated into the larger student body at John Oliver when they enter Grade 10 or another appropriate placement.
Admission into this program is through Central Screening.
