Success for Every Student
At Brian, we hold high expectations for every student. With a focus on differentiated instruction, we emphasize teaching and learning strategies and assessment tools that encourage continuous improvement for all students. Children are encouraged to be the best they can be.
Safe and Caring School
Students at Brian abide by the Brian Public School Code of Conduct. We are dedicated to providing and safe, caring and welcoming learning environment where every child feels valued. We also focus on the social, physical, and emotional development of our students. That means we also focus on developing character and in particular the TDSB character traits of respect, responsibility, empathy, kindness and caring, teamwork, fairness, honesty, co-operation, integirty and perseverance.
Strong Literacy & Numeracy Programs
Students continue to score above TDSB and Ministry expectations in both grade 3 and grade 6 EQAO results. Reading is assessed using DRA (SK to grade 3 in English) Alpha Jeunes (SK-grade 3 French Immersion) and CASI (Grades 4-6). With assistance from our literacy coach, teachers are participating in a learning pathway by developing common rubrics and curriculum planning.
We are fortunate to offer physical education classes with teachers with specialist qualifications. We are proud of our many boys and girls intramural, house and competitive teams who spend many hours of practice to bring home banners that hang proudly in our gym. We are also active members of Toronto Schools on the Move that promotes a healthy lifestyle for all.
Proud to be ECOO School Recipient
Brian is proud to have received silver recognition as part of ECO Schools. We are continuing to work actively with our committee of staff, students and parents to reduce garbage through litterless lunches and recyling and are currently investigating projects to beautify our school grounds.
We are fortunate to offer formalized music instruction to all our students by a music specialist teacher. In grade 3 students have the opportunity to learn recorder. All our students become part of the school choir and benefit from learning songs from many different parts of the world and in many different languages.
