All people at Vaudrin Academy are expected to do their best in every task undertaken. If a student receives 85% on a test, but we know she can do better, we'll gently ask her what happened. If a student receives 65% and gave it her all, we'll encourage her to savour her success and keep reaching higher. Our growth mindset culture is present from our Montessori 2-year-olds to our grade 6 scholars. Strong bonds are forged amongst everyone at our school to create the acceptance and trust needed to take risks, learn from our failures, and push ourselves further than ever in academics and beyond. Every moment with our students is an opportunity to model and discuss empathy, creativity, critical thinking, integrity, perseverance, and self-regulation – the tools necessary for true happiness and success in life. Our job is to inspire children to make our world a better place by using their own unique talents.
