What are Opportunity Classes?

Opportunity Classes (OC) are not in every public school, but are established in one school in each area. Please refer to this link for a listing of Schools with Year 5 Opportunity Classes -

Children gain opportunity class placement on the basis of academic merit. The main criteria for determining academic merit are Opportunity Class Placement Test results combined with school assessments. Comments made by parents and principals may be considered at the discretion of the selection committee.

Some general characteristics of gifted and talented children are listed below. It is important to note that academically gifted and talented children will not necessarily demonstrate all of these characteristics.

Is your child gifted?​ A gifted child:

  • learns rapidly and quickly grasps new concepts

  • has an excellent memory

OC Lesson Breakdown

Our OC lessons are 3 hours in duration. The main area focus is to train our students to take the OC tests using the most efficient methods. In the real OC test, students are allowed 30 minutes to answer 30 questions (for each part), that is equivalent to 1 minute per question. We believe that students will walk into the exam more focused and equiped to handle the time constraints of the test by continuously practicing and repeating exam style questions under exam conditions.


The tests are comprised of 2 parts. After each part, the teacher will work through each question with students. Not only will your child understand the methodology behind the solution, but he or she will also be taught how to arrive at the solution FASTER.
