Since 2016, Vanguard’s robotics team has enthusiastically participated in the First Lego League (FLL) competition, winning the Judges’ Award multiple times. In 2019, the team even reached fourth place in the competition. In 2022, the high school senior robotics team competed in the FIRST Robotics Challenge and won the prestigious Judges’ Choice Award. This program demonstrates the importance of investing in enrichment activities for students, even those living with learning disabilities, and showcases the talent and perseverance of these students.

Trips and outings

Every year, our grade 10 and 11 students have the privilege of getting involved in a humanitarian mission abroad if they wish. The sum of the courage, perseverance and mutual aid of our students (accompanied by teachers and professionals from the school) results in concrete solutions for people living in more disadvantaged countries. A unique educational and humanitarian experience that benefits everyone! Read about our 2023 mission in Guatemala and learn how our students come to realize the value of such an experience.
