TES Theatre’s Partner in Secondary Education
IDEAS High School is a Distributed Learning Community in Vancouver BC, for grades 8 – 12.
IDEAS offers optional classes 2 days/week, in the same building as TES Theatre, on complementary days.
Subjects offered include the usual high school courses (math, socials, english, science etc), but students can also get credit for everything they do at TES Theatre.
Through collaboration with the teachers, documentation provided by the students, and coordination between the programs, school credits can include courses such as Theatre History, Drama, Language Arts, Music, Dance, Choreography, Musical Theatre, Creative Writing, Shakespeare, Capstone Projects, and more.
IDEAS offers an exceptionally inclusive and individualized atmosphere for learning. Through small class sizes, optional attendance, online & blended options, a commitment to social justice, a respectful and friendly environment, and the best high school teacher anyone could imagine, IDEAS provides a unique high school experience.
“At IDEAS we offer a friendly, inclusive, academically enriching program without the drudgery. We have a kind, caring teacher who listens. We offer non-compulsory attendance and the freedom to tailor your schedule to your own interests and goals. IDEAS is an alternative learning high school that puts students first.”
THE PERFECT PACKAGE DEAL!
Half a week of high school and half a week of theatre: And all of it counts for credits.
