Homework

 

Homework
Whenever homework is given, it should supplement, complement, or reinforce classroom teaching. If your child has several teachers in our departmental program, teachers shall confer with one another and keep in balance the amount of work assigned. NORMS governing the suggested maximum time for homework assignments follow:
 

Primary grades (Grades 1, 2, 3)
20 to 30 minutes
Intermediate grades (Grades 4, 5)
45 to 60 minutes
Junior High grades (Grades 6, 7, 8)
60 to 90 minutes


It is important to note these are suggested norms. These norms take into account responsibility of getting homework completed and utilizing classroom study hall/flex time. It does not take into account different learning styles. Therefore, these estimates will vary based on the student.
