Cosburn Middle School's Mission Statement

Cosburn Middle School, located two blocks west of Coxwell Avenue on Cosburn Avenue, opened in 1949 as a Kindergarten to Grade 8 school. In 1950 it became a junior high school and in 1983, it was reorganized as a middle school.
We are very fortunate to have an outstanding facility, maintained at very high standards by an exemplary Caretaking Staff. Our teachers, support staff, students and community members all contribute to make Cosburn a safe and nurturing environment in which to work and play.
We serve approximately 525 students in Grades 6, 7, and 8 and offer a variety of opportunities for our students to get involved in our school.

We encourage the pursuit of excellence in all academic and school-related endeavours by requesting that our students take ownership rather than membership in their education. We offer Extended French Immersion, Late French Immersion, Early French Immersion, Middle French Immersion and English programs.

We provide an impressive Music program for all Cosburn students.  We are proud of our active co-curricular programs. We host a Student Council and many student clubs which provide: student leadership, global citizenship, social justice, as well as school and community service. Cosburn encourages parents to become actively involved in their children's education through School Council and frequent communication with our staff.


Providing a balanced literacy program that engages all learners is our goal here at Cosburn.  We have established a unified literacy plan that focusses on the explicit teaching of critical thinking skills which will enable our students to make well rounded choices as they progress through life.

Our planning is data driven and focussed on meeting the needs of our students. Our teachers are constantly engaged in professional learning to meet the ever evolving needs of our students.
