Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome back to another fantastic year at Spirit of Math!  I am very excited to be a part of the Spirit of Math team and look forward to meeting the parents and students at Joan of Arc.  Spirit of Math is unlike any other program I have encountered and it is a program that was truly created for high achieving students.  We believe that the key difference between Spirit of Math and other programs is our four elements consisting of drill (building fluency and automaticity), core curriculum (skills, knowledge and concepts), problem solving (reasoning, logical thinking and imagination), and collaborative group work. This ensures that students properly learn and practice skills, develop an in-depth understanding of the material and have an opportunity to apply their understanding, skills and imagination to solving problems while learning with others. 

Here, at Spirit of Math, we create a positive learning environment which will stimulate and inspire students.  Our teachers are very dedicated to challenging students and giving them every opportunity to succeed. My goal this year is to provide support to teachers, parents, and students for a seamless transition.

I look forward to meeting all our returning students and welcoming new students to the Joan of Arc Campus.


Birte McArthur

Campus Director, Joan of Arc

What our parents & students say!

  • Aparna Subramanian: "Our journey with Spirit of Math started a year ago, when Kashyap started grade 3. He was getting bored at school and wanted something challenging to do. There has been no looking back after that. Spirit of Math has never failed in challenging Kashyap and we couldn’t ask for more. A smiling staff always ready to help is a bonus indeed." Aparna Subramanian, parent of Kashyap, grade 4
  • Nicky Nguyen: "When your ten-year-old child can answer an equation like this -512+500+342-658+913-13 in seconds without a calculator, you know that Spirit of Math school is the right place for your child." Nicky Nguyen, parent of Taylor &Hayden, grades 2 & 7
  • Sudan Wang: "My kids started with Spirit of Math in grades 3 and 5 this year. They like their drills, the problem of the weeks and mental math. They have never been bored in class and are always quite excited to talk about their activities after class. The Campus Director and the teachers are very patient and helpful in terms of providing the feedback and advice to the parents. I think this is a wonderful math enrichment program." Sudan Wang, parent of Daniel & Darren, grades 3&5
  • Radu & Liana O.: “The curriculum is well ahead of the public school counterpart, and even though the classroom time is only one hour and a half per week, each concept is studied in much more depth than in school. Vital topics that are either missing or done very superficially in public school class rooms get proper attention at Spirit of Math… These are important building blocks for high school algebra, and Spirit of Math students get a very good mastery of these topics. The teachers are well-prepared and equipped with the passion and charisma to teach math effectively to a young audience. The variety of the program keeps the children engaged. Three years after our oldest children started Spirit of Math, they are as eager to continue as on their first day, and are at the same time very proud of their achievements. We are strongly recommending Spirit of Math to anyone who wants their children to achieve a strong background in math.” ~ Radu & Liana O., parents of Dariana & Andra, grades 2 & 6
  • Yung Jin and Soni Hou: “As parents of three students attending Spirit of Math, we are privileged to pass on our positive experiences. This will be our fourth year attending the SMS program. Because of this enhanced program, our three children excel in math and are one or two years ahead of the regular mathematics program at their day school. Our children are eager to attend the weekly instructional sessions and to complete their SMS homework with self-motivation. This is a testament to the intriguing and stimulating manner in which mathematical challenges are put forth by the SMS program, as well as the optimal level of assigned workload. We are very grateful to the highly qualified and dedicated teachers who make themselves available outside the weekly instructional periods, to help with individual questions from the students and parents alike. This program also offers math competitions for further encouragement and stimulation. We would like to see the SMS program expand in Ottawa as it would bring forth further synergic benefits and enrichment to all.” ~ Yung J. and Soni H., parents of Emily, Alexander, and Charlotte, grades 3, 5 & 9
