Counselling

Counsellors at Mount Baker Secondary School assist students with a wide variety of personal, educational
and career-related concerns. Some examples of services:

PERSONAL COUNSELLING
  assists students who are experiencing personal difficulties which interfere with
   their academic, social and/or family life
EDUCATIONAL COUNSELLING
  provides help in choosing appropriate courses and making educational plans for
   graduation
INFORMATION AND REFERRAL SERVICES

It is our hope that through the resources available in the Counselling Department,
students will be better informed and able to make appropriate decisions for them-
selves now and in the future. Counsellors can be accessed in non-emergency situa-
tions by making an appointment with the secretary at 250-426-5241, ext. 650 who
will direct your call to the appropriate counsellor.

Course Credits
You’ll probably earn most of your credits toward graduation the usual way – by successfully completing
school-based courses. But there are other ways of earning credits, and some of these might work for you.

Read through the list of options below. For more information, talk to your school counsellor or go to:

Independent Directed Studies
(IDS 10/11/12)
The purpose of this course is to permit students to
initiate their own course of learning at the Grade
10, 11 or 12 level under the supervision of a
teacher. IDS 10/11/12 will only be available
through consultation with a counsellor and
permission of the appropriate department
head. 1 to 4 credits may be earned. This is
completed outside the timetable.

Student Services

Located in Rooms 125 and 126, the MBSS Student Services Team provides a variety of support services
for students. Our goal is to provide students with appropriate levels of support and meaningful programs
to enhance learning in the school or in the community. Based on the specific academic, social, emotional,
and physical needs of the individual student, some of these services include:
 quizzes and tests (separate setting, oral questions, scribing)
 adaptations (curriculum, test, homework, setting)
 support with the acquisition of functional life skills
 development of an Individualized Education Plan (IEP)
 modification of academic core courses (Math, Social Studies, Science, English) for students working
     towards a B.C. School Completion Certificate (Evergreen Certificate)
 meetings with students and parents to review progress and plan for future goals
 arrangement of work experience where appropriate and possible

Aboriginal Education

Aboriginal Education is for everyone. It is based on providing holistic supports: academic, physical, emo-
tional and spiritual. The broad goals of Aboriginal Education are to support all First Nations (on and off re-
serve), Metis and Inuit students and to infuse Aboriginal perspectives across the curriculum.

Aboriginal Education Support Workers (AESW) and Elders assist Indigenous students and their families in
navigating the school system. They reinforce pride and identity amongst Indigenous students. The AESW
and Elders are available to help all MBSS students, staff and teachers.

Grade 10
Career Life Education will be offered inside the timetable. Should students be unsuccessful in the completion of this
required course, it will impact the options available in future grades.

Grade 11
Career Life Connections will be offered outside the timetable. While working closely with our platform called “My
Blueprint”, students will be expected to complete the required course material with teacher supervision and support. When
successful, students move to the completion of Career Life Connections Capstone which will be offered in their grade 12
year.

Grade 12
Career Life Connections Capstone will be offered outside the timetable for students who have successfully complet-
ed Career Life Connections by the end of their grade 11 year. Students will meet with a supervising teacher who will support
and guide them in preparing their required Capstone presentation.

Career Life Connections and Career Life Connections Capstone will be offered to those students who had to repeat
Career Life Education or were unsuccessful in completing Career Life Connections in grade 11. They will have a block as-
signed inside the timetable for them to meet the course expectations. This combination would also be available for students
who prefer it and have the flexibility to forego another elective course.

        Support Blocks 11/12 approved by application only

        Support Blocks offer students an opportunity to improve their skills in a number of non-credit classes.
        Distributed Learning Support provides time and opportunity for students to complete distance learning
        coursework.
        Students who do not complete Career Life Connections in Grade 11 relinquish an opportunity for a
        Support Block in order to have Career Life Connections in their timetable in Grade 12.

Advanced Placement Computer Science Principles 12 (ACSP-12)
Prerequisite: None

This is a computer course for those who are not necessarily computer savy. AP Computer Science Principles offers
students a panoramic understanding of computing practices. If you did well in Foundations and Pre-Calculus 10
(73% or higher) and are in Grade 11 (imagine being in Grade 11 and getting College credit), this is the course for
you! You can come into the course not knowing anything about computers and leave with a working App on your
own iPhone and College credit. This course will provide you with a foundation of programming in Swift, which is the
language used by all Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, Apple TV) and can lead to a very lucrative
career.

Drafting

                                              The Drafting Program
                Drafting focuses on drawing objects through lines and symbols. You do not need to
                know how to draw for this program. Students learn drafting skills using primarily com-
                puter software (CADD). If you are considering a career in architecture, engineering,
                interior design, theatre/film technician, forestry, land surveying, or any of the trades,
                this program will help meet your needs!

Drafting 11 (MTDRF11)
Prerequisite: None

This course teaches the fundamentals of technical drawing
and product design used by Architects and Engineers. The
course covers the latest AutoCAD software and sketching/
board skills.

Drafting 12 (MTDRF12)
Prerequisite: MTDRF11

This course builds on the skills learned in Drafting 11. Stu-
dents spend time learning advanced drafting/design tech-
niques used by Architects and Engineers in technical draw-
ings. The majority of work is done using Autodesk software
including AutoCad, Inventor and Revit, with some sketching/
design skills required.
This is a Design - Draw - Build course!

Industrial Coding and Design 12 (MTICD12)
Prerequisite: Teacher recommendation

 Industrial Coding and Design 12 builds on basic concepts
developed in Drafting 11 and 12. Students who enjoy inde-
pendent learning, creative designing and problem solving will
be attracted to this option. Students will expand their 3D ar-
chitectural and mechanical modelling and animation skills
using industry-standard software. Students will also learn dif-
ferent processes for converting 3D model files into code for
machine processing and will realize their designs using CNC
and 3D printers. Activities in this area would effectively sup-
port a portfolio application for entrance into post-secondary.

Robotics 11 (MTROB11)
Prerequisite: None

This course uses the Lego Mindstorms system to teach students to design and build a variety of task specific
robots. Students will learn how to build remotely controlled and autonomous wheeled, tracked, and multi-
legged mobile robots and to program them to interface with different electronic sensors and motors. Time is
spent designing mobile robots that will compete in several robotic competitions. The lectures will focus on mo-
tors, sensors, and control.

Robotics 12 (MTROB12)
Prerequisite: MTROB11

This course builds on the skills and knowledge gained in Robotics 11 and enables students to build more com-
plex robotics systems. Because students will be expected to work somewhat independently, a certain degree
of self-direction is necessary for success in this course.

Metalworking

                                                The Metalworking Program
Metalworking focuses on the safe use of tools, equipment, and processes used in the metal shop. This
is a great program for students thinking of continuing in metal furniture design, decorative iron work,
welding or machining. If you are really interested in this program, you may want to consider a career in
metal fabrication.
