At Treetops, the key purpose of reporting is to provide information about the achievement and progress of each student in relation to the concepts, skills and attitudes learnt, and to indicate areas for further development. Each year, reporting of student progress is facilitated through parent teacher interviews during Terms 1 and 3, and written semester reports at the conclusion of Terms 2 and 4.
Semester reports are a summative record of a student’s academic, as well as social/emotional, progress. They clearly indicate areas of strength and areas of required improvement, and are seen as vital records for students, parents and the school itself.
The Montessori Australia Foundation developed a curriculum which has been approved by both the Australian and Western Australian education authorities. Treetops has approval from the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA) to use this Montessori curriculum, which is followed in Children’s House, however is blended with the SCSA curriculum through-out the primary years ensuring that students receive an education that is both true to Montessori and compliant with contemporary thinking in term of the State and National curriculum standards.
In Secondary School the instruction is in line with the Secondary School SCSA curriculum, however the Montessori philosophies are still applied and are an excellent fit to the philosophy which underpins the International Baccalaureate Organisation Diploma Programme or Career-Related Programme which runs in Years 11 and 12.
