"Homework can be beneficial and boost learning but it can also be detrimental if the right homework is not assigned... We focus on differentiation and in particular WIN (What I Need) as the motto for students to feel comfortable with differentiated work. Staff is strongly encouraged to follow this philosophy when assigning homework and keep in mind the questions:

“Does each child need this? If not, why assign it?”
