Student Success Program

Student Success is a Ministry of Education initiative designed to ensure additional support for students. At Stamford Collegiate, we are dedicated to fulfilling the District School Board of Niagara’s Mission Statement which states that:   
"We are  committed to student success by working together to inspire and empower all learners to reach their full potential”

The role of our student success team is to:

  • Transition  grade 8 students who have been identified as at risk of not being successful in the secondary setting
  • Track the progress of students at risk
  • Support school-wide efforts to improve student progress
  • Re-engage students who have left school without graduating
  • Provide direct support and instruction to struggling students
  • Support teaching staff with resources and delivery of curriculum
  • Work with parents and the community to increase student  success

Student Success programs and initiatives at Stamford include:

  • Identification, transition and monitoring of incoming grade 9 students at risk
  • Transition initiatives including: Grade 8 day, SSTW day, Club-fest, Sign on to Graduate and Individual tours
  • Credit recovery and rescue classes
