Each student enrolled in the Rosedale Global High School Program at a Rosedale Academy international partner school has their own distinct path filled with ideas, goals and dreams—and understanding that unique student experience is paramount in how we shape education for the next generation of global learners .
At Rosedale, we’re proud of our continuous innovation and enhancement in providing solutions and best practices to our 51 Rosedale Academy partner schools. We ensure our robust curriculum, rooted in the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD), is delivered confidently by our Classroom Teachers through annual teacher training and professional development programs.
When our partner schools succeed, students succeed. In honouring our commitment to building strong partnerships with top secondary schools around the world and providing students access to differentiated education with an emphasis on higher order thinking skills, while studying in their local school’s classroom, we invited our 2021 graduates to share their thoughts about their time at Rosedale Global High School Program—ultimately providing us a look into the lived experience of our students: from curriculum, learning experiences, to their preparation for university and more.

Our graduates have shown that differentiated education and high order thinking skill development are effectively implemented across the Global High School Program and provided exceptional learner experiences. A few statistics:
- 91% of graduates reported well-rounded learning experiences in the collaborative program
