F.R. Haythorne has four system based special education classes. The three GOALS classrooms (grades 7-9) are designed to meet the needs of students with mild cognitive disabilities. The focus of this program is on basic academics as well as life skills and social development. The FOCUS program (grades 7-9) is for students with complex issues and related learning difficulties. Learning and coping strategies, social skill development, and support networks are key areas of this program.
Character education, citizenship, and student leadership are integral to the F.R Haythorne experience. Staff, administration, and the parent community maintain very high academic and behavioural expectations for students attending the school, and the school has established a consistent emphasis on maximizing student achievement. Students also have numerous opportunities to be involved and demonstrate leadership through such activities as leadership options, extracurricular clubs, yearbook, and athletics. F.R. Haythorne athletic teams have a rich tradition of success and are widely recognized for their sportsmanship, league play, and tournament performance.
