Students at the Presentation follow the curricular programme set down by the Department of Education and Science.
All our students are actively encouraged to achieve their maximum potential; consequently there is a culture of academic excellence with the majority of students achieving honours at higher level Junior and Leaving Cert. A holistic approach is adopted, as a visionary curriculum supports and nurtures the students spiritual,intellectual, linguistic, emotional and social development. In the class-room, a student centered activity based approach is adopted.
There is a firm but positive approach to discipline to create a safe learning environment for all students.
Our after-school study programme provides a structured environment for students to hone their study skills and make constructive use of their time.
Our teaching staff participate in on-going professional development to ensure that they are in touch with new developments in teaching and learning methodologies. Students with learning difficulties are supported with a learning support teacher.
