Kristy Larose
Principal, Blyth Academy The Glebe

Our campus, located in vibrant Lansdowne Park, is filled with students who have chosen our school, and our staff, to help them find their place and reach their potential. We take the time to get to know each student who walks through our doors, and we provide them with the environment to confidently take ownership of their education. Creating efficiencies with students’ time and providing flexibility is key to the structure of our school year. Our staff works closely with each family to ensure the students’ needs are met, and instructional time is spent learning.

We help students achieve their personal bests, academically and socially, by knowing them, and making sure they feel like they belong. By empowering them to ask questions, and providing meaningful, hands-on learning opportunities, we ensure they understand the curriculum in an environment that promotes a culture of acceptance, provides support and pushes each student to exceed their own expectation. Our expectation is that each student will work to their full potential and become the owners of their education. They achieve this by learning to self-advocate, communicate with teachers, and taking pride in being responsible for their own educational journey.

Sincerely,
