Davisville Junior Public School (Gr JK - 06)
Our school has an interesting history in this community. Davisville School was originally built as a two-room school in 1860 and named after the first postmaster of the Village of Davisville. The present school was built in 1962 and was the home of two separate and unique schools. In September 2002, Davisville Junior Public School and The Metropolitan Toronto School for the Deaf (MTSD) were twinned. Approximately 260 pupils are enrolled in regular program and 40 students in D/HH division. In September 2009 Davisville JPS became a dual track school offering English (regular program) and Early Fench Immersion (Grade 1 to 6). As our French Immersion program expands, we will be welcoming two new Grade 2 classes in September 2011.Read more

Collaboration, teamwork and partnerships are vital components in our community. With this in mind, students and staff meet once a month to concentrate on our Character Education and celebrate student achievements. Each assembly is led by a class or classes and focuses on a character trait.
Our school is committed to student success. Teachers conduct regular assessment to ensure programming is responsive to student needs. The School Support Team meets monthly to provide support/interventions for students and families. Complementing the regular programs Davisville PS/MTSD has Early Reading Intervention, ESL and Special Education programs.
Healthy, Active Living
We promote a healthy, active lifestyle as part of 'Toronto Schools on the Move'. All classes participate in Daily Physical Activity (DPA) and have "gym" at least 3 times per week. Co-curricular activities keep students active at lunch. Our Nutrition Program provides a morning snack to all students. Read more about Healthy, Active Living
