Crescent School has been educating boys for almost 100 years. As an academic institution, we strive to offer the best possible learning experiences for all of our students. It is of fundamental importance that we are aware of current research findings into how boys best develop and learn.
Under the umbrella of Crescent Student Services (CSS), Research Division, we actively support and work in pursuit of investigations that have applications to educating boys. Our faculty are engaged in a range of original research projects, both in-house and through collaborative efforts with universities, and regularly share this information through professional development workshops and other opportunities.
In January 2011, Crescent School hosted an evening for parents and educators entitled Educating Boys: Challenges, Opportunities and Solutions. The evening was so successful, and feedback was so positive, that another similar event was held on February 1, 2012.
The evening was, once again, moderated by Crescent's in-house psychologist and Head of CSS, Dr. Mike Leatch, and included Crescent faculty speakers presenting new information and research findings in our Centre for Creative Learning (CCL) theatre.
Detailed information will be available in early 2013 for Crescent's third Educating Boys event. See you then.
