Our Homework Philosophy 

Homework in the TASIS England Middle School is part of the instructional program. Assignments vary in accordance to the needs of the grade/class and relate to the curriculum.

We firmly believe that the majority of learning should take place during the school day, under the guidance of classroom teachers, and that students should have a full and varied life outside of the school day. Homework must have clear purpose and value, and be able to be completed independently by students.

Homework assignments reinforce and extend classroom learning and help teachers to assess student understanding. Routinely completing developmentally appropriate assignments can motivate students to develop good work habits and increase individual initiative and responsibility. Homework can also stimulate creativity, critical thinking, and the awareness that learning can take place outside of the classroom.
