Andrew Avenue supports students developing life skills as described within the Vision of the Graduate. This includes students becoming more independent and responsible citizens. Teachers may give homework but it will not impact grades and there is no longer a homework grade on Progress Reports. We know that it is most important for families to investigate their environments, participate in debate/discussions, exercise and enjoy one another. Research suggests that giving students chores is a better way for students to develop a sense of responsibility. Reading daily is an important habit to develop in order to learn and for enjoyment.
