Learn today...Lead tomorrow!
Inglewood Heights Junior Public School first opened in 1956 as a Kindergarten to Grade 8 school with 196 students. Today, the school has Kindergarten to Grade 6 and serves approximately 220 students and an ethnically diverse community, representing over 20 different languages.
Our commitment is to provide a well-balanced, challenging and nurturing educational program. We provide students with significant blocks of time for the study of literacy and numeracy, as well as the integration of other subjects.
We welcome parent and community involvement. We are very proud of our annual community events. Inglewood is a Future Aces school, and all students are taught to adopt the Future Aces values.
Full Day Kindergarten at Inglewood
Inglewood Heights has had a Full Day Kindergarten Learning Program since September, 2010. Each classroom teacher works with an Early Childhood Educator to provide our Kindergarten students with a full day of meaningful programming that will help them get the best start to their education. This play-based program emphasizes inquiry-based learning and self-regulation. The Full Day program provides young children with a better start and a firmer foundation for future success in school and in life.
Relevant Literacy and Numeracy Programs
Our dedicated teachers participate in ongoing professional development which enable them to provide students with a balanced literacy program. Teachers provide students with large blocks of time for studying Language and Math, and for integrating all other subject areas. Students learn modelled, shared, guided and independent reading and writing strategies. Emphasis is placed on the use of a variety of texts, both fiction and non-fiction to assist students' comprehension. The Math curriculum is delivered through the use of manipulatives, problem-solving strategies and technology (including the Smartboard and iPads).
Healthy Bodies...Healthy Minds!
We are a Toronto School on the Move. Our students are taught the importance of healthy eating and an active lifestyle. We offer many extra-curricular and team sports. Students participate in a daily school-wide Health Hustle. Students receive two healthy snacks daily, as part of our snack program to promote healthy eating and to make them conscious of their eating habits.
We are a Gold Eco-School!
Working together with staff, students and the community, we are a certified Gold level Eco-School and have applied for Platinum status. We have a Litterless Lunch and Green Bin program, encourage walking to school and have reduced our use of electricity, through delamping. The Eco-team is comprised of staff and student leaders that educate the school to LIVE GREEN.
Outdoor Learning Classroom at Inglewood Heights
Inglewood is home to a beautiful playground in the heart of the community at the front of the school. The playground features slides, a climbing apparatus and a sand surface. A "nature trail" area serves as an outdoor classroom to promote Eco-Literacy. Large stones are placed all around the back of the school, to promote a quiet outdoor reading space.
