Lambton-Kingsway Junior Middle School's Mission Statement

Lambton-Kingsway has enjoyed a long standing tradition of community involvement and educational excellence. The current building (1993) is the fourth school to be located in this community since the village of Lambton was founded.  Dating back to 1845, Lambton Mills Public School was Etobicoke's first two-room school. By 1875 a one- room, red brick school was built at the corner of Lambton Road (now Prince Edward Drive) and Government Road. Increasing enrolment resulted in the construction of a four- room school adjacent to the old school in 1916. The new Lambton-Kingsway Junior Middle School opened its doors to 551 enthusiastic learners on January 4, 1993.

Student Assessment

The primary purpose of student assessment is to improve learning.
Assessment has the greatest potential to improve learning when it is an integral part of classroom activities. Teachers assess student progress on an ongoing basis by using strategies such as projects, class presentations, homework assignments, classroom observations, portfolios and tests. 

Schools use assessment information and information from other sources to make informed decisions for school improvement planning. Schools identify areas of strength as well as areas that require improvement.

Physical Education & Healthy Living

At Lambton-Kingsway JMS we are committed to supporting physical education and a healthy lifestyle for our students through our physical and health education program and our extra-curricular activities.

Students are encouraged to build on their strengths and interests in areas such as: athletics, music, drama, the arts, literacy and numeracy, the environment, social justice awareness, community involvement, peer support, an intermediate house system and an abundance of leadership opportunities. 

WHAT SETS US APART

Lambton-Kingsway students in Grades 3 and 6 have achieved excellent results in all three areas of the EQAO assessment (provincial performance-based tests developed by the Education Quality and Accountability Office). Our test scores are above provincial standards. We also implement the Candadian Test of Basic Skills at LKS from grades 3-8. Our CTBS (a standardized test) scores indicate above grade level averages in language and math. The factors for this success stem from effective teaching practices, ongoing professional development, the contribution of parent volunteers and strong support from families in the community. We continue to expand and extend the higher level and critical thinking abilities of our learners.

PARENT AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

Lambton-Kingsway School and Parent Council acts on behalf of the parent body in a consultative and advisory capacity to the principal. The Council, in association with many parent volunteers, has been instrumental in bringing many resources to the school which enhance the current curriculum and the overall educational environment. These have included; enhancements to the library, computer lab, music program and schoolyard; programs that bring specialists into the school such as scientists, authors, artists and guest performers; annual Springfest and other fund raising events. Parent volunteers can also be found assisting in classroom reading programs, story writing, remedial work, computer labs, library and excursions. They also assist in extra-curricular activities such as drama and concert productions, choirs and school sports.
