What makes this a SCHOOL THAT WORKS

Guided by research, educators at Cochrane Collegiate have homed in on ten top teaching methods, and teachers receive weekly PD to help them implement the practices.
The students at a previously failing school have made big gains since all of their teachers started using these strategies every day.
At Cochrane Collegiate Academy, teachers credit their principal with helping them continually improve their practice through effective PD, ongoing support, and mutual trust.
