Eatonville Junior School (Gr JK - 05)
15 Rossburn Dr, Etobicoke, ON
Our motto is "Growing in Spirit"!
Eatonville Junior School was originally situated in 1870 on the northeast corner of Bloor Street and The West Mall on land donated by the Timothy Eaton family and was first known as the "Swamp School" due to the many surrounding frog ponds. The current school was built in 1955 on Rossburn Drive to accommodate more children. In 1998, the children created a time capsule to be opened on the 200th anniversary of Eatonville Junior School. We are committed to a respectful and equitable partnership with our diverse community of children, teachers and families! We foster a safe and nurturing environment in which we pursue our goals and celebrate our successes. We believe in honour, diligence and integrity - growing in spirit together.Read more
