At Damascus College we understand that each student has individual learning needs and we aim to provide classroom activities which differentiate for the abilities and learning styles of our students.

We encourage young people to think, to analyse and to reflect. Rather than teaching them what to think, we teach them how to become flexible, creative and analytical thinkers. Our goals is for students to reach their full physical and spiritual potential and we do this by providing them with the tools and support they need to achieve this outcome.
