Dare to Dream, Dare to Fly!
Winona Drive Public School is located south of St.Clair Avenue West between Bathurst and Dufferin streets. The building was constructed in 1959 as a fourth addition to McMurrich Junior Public School. Although McMurrich and Winona are physically joined, they are separate in terms of administration, teaching staff, and grades/programs offered.
Winona Drive Senior Public School strives to provide excellence in education for the young adolescent. Through partnership with the home, our staff provide opportunities for our students to learn and grow intellectually, socially and emotionally. Students have clearly outlined responsibilities which accompany their rights. We have expectations of them, and for them, both in the classroom and beyond.Read more
