Humber Summit Middle School (Gr 06 - 08)
Humber Summit Middle School is located near Finch and Islington. It draws students from a large attendance area, reaching from near Islington and Steeles to Weston and Wilson. The 540 students Humber Summit serves represent diverse cultural, racial, and faith backgrounds. Our vision is based on three priorities: Student Achievement, Parent and Community Engagement and Financial Stability. We will use the School Effectiveness Framework as a tool to develop, implement and monitor our progress, based on an analysis of data (EQAO, CASI, DRA and Math Assessment). By using this framework we will be able to implement a more strategic approach, an intentional allocation of resources and equity of outcome for all students.Read more
