William Tredway Junior Public School (Gr JK - 06)
William Tredway Junior Public School is located in Toronto East and is named after a prominent Scarborough pioneer who exemplified leadership in the community. The school opened in September 1956 with ten classrooms and one Kindergarten room. Currently, our two-storey school accommodates 30 classes, in 25 classrooms and 5 portables, and serves a student population representing a rich diversity of cultures.
Tredway is a dual-track school, offering instruction in English from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6 and French Immersion from Senior Kindergarten to Grade 6.
We are continuing to improve and increase our Literacy and Numeracy resources and programs. We are doing this through professional development and ensuring supporting resources are in the classrooms. The staff continues to analyze the data from a variety of resources available to us, which helps us drive our instruction and assessment strategies to improve student performance and learning within our school.
Language and Literacy
At William Tredway we believe that a solid foundation in literacy is critical. Through daily reading with materials at instructional levels, with a focus on improving reading comprehension and higher order thinking we strive for success. We use DRA, Alpha Jeunes, running records CAT 4 and CASI assessments with data from our report cards and EQAO, to inform our practice.
Math, Science and Technology

Furthermore, our students have an opportunity to develop their technological skills in the classroom and our computer lab, with the latest technology from Mac laptops to Mimio Boards.
