Eastview Public School (Gr JK - 08)
Eastview Public School opened in 1955. Additions were built in 1969 and 1973. Our school neighbourhood has a very diverse population with families from all areas of Canada and the world. Eastview has a large Aboriginal community and has been in the forefront of developing Native education programs in an urban setting. TDSB provides busing to students of First Nations background living in the Scarborough area who wish to have Ojibwa language instruction. We endeavour to attain excellence through academic accountability, arts, and athletics. As a Model school with a community partnership focus we offer before and after school options with the Boys and Girls Club of East Scarborough and Native Child and Family Services.
Model Schools: Ensuring Student Success
Our school is the heart of the community providing an inclusive environment that values all cultures. We set high expectations for our students and develop learning opportunities based on demonstrated needs. Students are provided with the tools, resources and opportunities they need to participate fully at school and in the community. Teachers work collaboratively in professional Learning teams to set high expectations for students, use data and assessment to guide instruction, provide feedback for students and develop effective lessons and tasks.Read more about Model Schools: Ensuring Student Success
