One of the main objectives of the Tec-Voc Grade 9 program is to have students make a smooth transition from middle school to high school. Grade 9 at Tec-Voc is taught using a team approach to instruction, discipline and extra-curricular activities. Our home rooms allow staff to closely monitor and assess academic progress and student development. We also offer students a variety of learning experiences including: fieldtrips, intramurals, volunteerism, camp and extra-curricular opportunities.
