Bishop’s College School is a small, diverse community located in Sherbrooke, Quebec. The school is English-language and co-educational, welcoming both boarders and day students. With an average class size of 15, students and teachers develop close bonds. Because of this, Bishop’s College emphasizes individual attention and collaborative learning. Every two weeks, teachers evaluate each student’s participation in class through the Effort Ratings. The Effort Ratings are not about marks or achievement, they are purely an evaluation of student participation and engagement with coursework. The goal is to celebrate students’ dedication and help identify areas of weakness. In addition to class time, teachers are also available for extra help during evenings and weekends.
