About Alliance High School

Located in East Vancouver, Alliance High School is the first and only public-affiliated correspondence and online high school brand in Lower Mainland BC which well-recognized in Canada. By establishing a “correspond” way of teaching, teachers at Alliance High bring classes to grade 10 - 12 students’ home on a customized schedule and work on a one-on-one base, which challenges the traditional education system from its very core.

 

Joseph Lee, a young adjunct professor at the Concordia International University spearheading the course development team for Alliance High School shared their insights on this innovative education system strictly for the students with special needs.

 

“We believe there are no bad students. They are just less motivated,” said Prof. Lee, It is not easy to acquainted with completely different education system from oversea and succeed in school works with attention problems without concrete foundation and environment”.

 

Together with their research team, Professor Joseph Lee help creates and develop high-quality and most up-to-date academic materials for not only focusing on English second language (ESL) students but also students who struggle with ADHD and ADD symptoms.

 

One major advantage for students attending Alliance High School, is that they can work on a flexible schedule in combinations of online and offline courses. Even for students who choose to still take in-class lectures, there is a maximum amount of five students per class. This system particularly enables their students to fully focus on their own pace of studying rather than being turned over by average class paces with the current secondary school system in BC.

 

In addition, this program typically allows their students to study anywhere and anytime with the support from the designated teacher on board. Especially students, who suffer from ADD & ADHD, can now establish their own school time table which simply works best for them. In fact, this compensates the problems found not only in typical class setting systems but also current online programs.

 

It is, moreover, by designing customized education plans for each students with high-standard academic support that secured the rather outstanding acceptance rates for many Alliance High School graduates - 84% for University of British Columbia and 88% for University of Toronto.

 

Another part that sets Alliance High apart from traditional high schools is that even for international students who do not meet language requirements for regular high school courses, they are encouraged to take grade-10-level English course rather than going to an ESL class with special support by language experts. 

 

“Oftentimes, international students going to ESL classes tend to stay with students from the same country, which increases the chances for them to speak their first-language. Therefore we’d recommend our students to take at least grade 10 English course, which provides a real English language environment for them to practice their English,” said Prof. Lee.

 

For young educator like Professor Joseph Lee, what they really want to see is that more and more students could enjoy the advanced education resources rather than left behind from other students.

 

“Education, in my view, should be something for everyone and everywhere,” said Prof. Lee.
