Blyth has been my son’s first traditional school experience. He entered at grade 10. The majority of his classes have been very good but there has been a lot of confusion in some. He thoroughly enjoyed Gr 10 English and Civics, and is currently enjoying Gr 11 English and American History. Partway through his Gr 9/10 business class there was a change in teachers. Neither the first or second teacher could explain one of the assignments very well. As a parent and an educator, I encourage my children to strive to do their best but without guidance and effective communication this is difficult. On a recent History exam he answered a closed question correctly but did poorly because he didn’t elaborate. When he asked the teacher, he received the answer that more was expected of a grade 11 student. I agree, but still feel the question should have said, ‘explain your reasoning’. How is he supposed to know what the teacher wants if they don’t tell him? Please keep in mind that not all students come with a traditional school background. I also wondered why Macbeth was being studied in both Gr 10 and Gr 11 English. I certainly didn’t expect to pay for my son to study the same Shakespearean play twice. Math is another issue all on it’s own. He did very well prior to Blyth but even with the help of a tutor he struggled to complete Blyth’s grade 10 math. These experiences have not deterred him from wanting to take Blyth courses, and even after all our struggles he says he would give Blyth a 4* rating. We know that there is no perfect school out there and for now are choosing to stay with Blyth. Thank you for taking the time to read my review.
