Background and Philosophy
The purpose of the school, as has been stated by the principal, Dr. Meg Fox, is to not only enrich the mandated Ontario high school curriculum, but to provide high school students with an integrated curriculum heavily reliant on the socratic method. It is a progressive school, following the philosophy of John Dewey. In its curriculum and teaching methods, The Dragon promotes creativity, freedom of expression, collaboration and a commitment to social justice. Course offerings are balanced across the arts, sciences and humanities.
