Clairlea Public School, located on Rosalind Crescent in Scarborough, first opened in 1952. In September 2002, the French Immersion program from Kindergarten to Grade 8 was introduced. We offer the unique opportunity of early French Immersion to interested Senior Kindergarten students and their families. We strive to enable all students to reach high levels of achievement and to acquire the knowledge, skills and values needed to become responsible members of society. We are committed to providing a learning environment that is safe, nurturing, positive and respectful. This is enabled through the active involvement of our students, staff, parents and community.Read more
