5 new classrooms and 4 new Labs
It has been well documented that students in fairly small classrooms do much better than those in overcrowded rooms. Here at Immaculate Conception High School, although our homerooms have 40-46 students, most of our classes have approximately 30 students.
However, in Grades 7 and 8, a few of the classes are whole classes, that is, they have 40-46 students. In order to reduce these class sizes, we will need to increase the number of classrooms that we have.
No classrooms have been added since 1997 (over 20 years ago), and we have increased in numbers (from 1400 then to 1670 now); an increase of 270. We have added new subjects in order to stay relevant in the digital age (IT, Digital Media etc.); and we have included STEM curriculum to better serve our students.
Immaculate Conception High School is one of Jamaica’s oldest learning institutions and is celebrating its 160th anniversary this year. We would like to build these new classrooms as we celebrate this milestone in our school’s life.
