Bloordale Middle School's Mission Statement

Bloordale Middle School, founded in 1960, is nestled geographically in the middle of four feeder schools. The benefit of receiving students from four feeder schools is that it enables students to build new friendships and further develop relationships with peers prior to attending high school.


 


 

Middle School Experience

Middle School provides students with the opportunity to participate in experiences similar to those in high school through rotary subjects, the use of lockers, student council, team sports, instrumental music programs, etc., while also maintaining a strong personal relationship with their core teachers.

School's Motto

The school's motto, "A Place Where Everyone Knows Your Name," reinforces Bloordale Middle School's commitment and dedication to developing and sustaining a respectful environment that ensures that all of our learners achieve a high level of academic achievement as determined by our provincial standards.

 Bloordale Middle School is committed to a comprehensive support system to meet the diverse needs of all our learners.

Collapsed Week

Using smaller teacher-pupil ratios, this week is committed to providing each student with the opportunity to receive support to consolidate or extend their knowledge based on the expectations of the term.  Through a variety of innovative and differentiated instruction methods, teachers are able to move students towards a better understanding of the curriculum. 

Me to We

This program teaches students to not only receive, but to give back as well. Me to We enables the students to represent their school and global causes.  It is our hope that the students' participation in this social justice group will encourage them to continue to make positive contributions to others throughout their lives.

Character Education

The character education program at Bloordale is very unique.  Unlike most schools, this program is integrated into the regular schedule with all classes receiving instruction and opportunities to further explore and discuss the TDSB's character attributes. 

This program is woven into all aspects of school life and is timetabled like all other classes, and taught by the school guidance teacher. The focus of the program, is centred around teaching of the TDSB virtues and designed to meet the needs of each student's grade level. The outcome for all students is a better understanding of the importance of character in building success both academically and personally.

Student Life - Where You Belong

GO TEAM

At Bloordale, we work hard to be a place where everybody knows your name and a school that stands apart from others. For lunch, Bloordale offers many different choices of food throughout the week. And several clubs run over the lunch hour and afterschool including: Student Council and Performance Club. Bloordale also has many sports teams that alternate through the seasons. Homework Club provides students with a quiet place to get help and complete homework assignments. Bloordale also hosts monthly Student Recognition Assemblies which focus on the virtues/character attributes for each month and provide opportunities for classes/students to showcase their projects and celebrate their successes. During the Winter and Spring seasons, Bloordale also puts on a magnificent concert to highlight the talents of their string, band, choir and performance club students.

WHAT SETS US APART

From toe tapping music to breathtaking performances, our bi-annual School Musical is a showcase of talent by all of the staff and students at Bloordale Middle School.  Some amazing productions have included our adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, an original performance - Footprints: Music Through the Decades, Aladdin and our most recent, The Little Mermaid. The productions allow each student to nurture their talents and share their interests in a wonderfully unique way.  The students look forward to the memories and friends which come from the amazing school musicals.   

PARENT AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

Bloordale Middle School has developed a strong and integral partnership with the School Council. The council meets throughout the year to discuss and support the ongoing activities of school life. The bi-annual Community Outreach Fun Fair is an example of such a partnership.  The school staff and School Council work throughout the year to bring together an evening of wonderful entertainment, carnival activities and refreshments for the students, families and Bloordale community. In addition, Bloordale Middle School also has a wonderful partnership with the City of Toronto Parks and Recreation Community School. This union is evident with the Bloordale students volunteering in the Teens & Tots program, collaborations with school special events and  extra-curricular activities.  We are fortunate to have such wonderful partnerships!
