Downsview Public School
Downsview Public School is located on Keele Street, just north of Wilson Avenue, and south of Sheppard Avenue West. The first Downsview Public School was erected in 1850. The present building opened in 1948. Our school serves approximately 220 enthusiastic, bright, and industrious students. We have a very diverse, multicultural, multifaith, and multilingual student population. In fact, we have over 25 languages represented at Downsview. Other than English, the most common languages spoken are Turkish, Vietnamese, Spanish, Tagalog, Gujarati and Tamil. This diversity makes for a rich texture, and enriches teaching and learning for everyone. We strive to be inclusive and to make all of our families feel welcome.
Student safety is a priority here at Downsview. We work hard to maintain a safe, caring and nurturing environment, where we look after the needs of the whole child. We have a milk program and a morning meal program. Our Code of Conduct ensures that students feel safe and secure, in order that the primary focus continues to be on teaching and learning for all members of the school community. We are a Future Aces School and we recognize student success and achievement in a variety of ways, such as character education assemblies and concerts. We also have an on-site daycare centre. Friendly Times provides pre-school and school-aged programs. We also accept students from Air-O-Down Child Care Centre and Kiiewednong Child Care Centre.
