Ryerson Community School (GR. JK-08)
"Ryerson Community School...Where you belong"
Egerton Ryerson, the founder of Ontario's public education system, founded Ryerson Community School in 1877. Ryerson studied various education systems in the U.S., England, and Europe and combined the best of these to develop his own system in Ontario. Today, Ryerson Community School is a vibrant and diverse K to 8 school, both culturally and linguistically. We are the 1999 recipients of the Ruth Atkinson Hindmarsh Award for excellence in community based programming. In 2008, Ryerson received the prestigious Anne Hope Award for our commitment to promoting social justice, human rights, and anti-racist education. We celebrated our 125th Anniversary Celebration in 2002. Our motto is "Ryerson Community School...Where you belong."
