Westway Junior School's Mission Statement

Westway Junior School is a one level junior school (JK - 5), located east of Kipling and north of The Westway in a quiet residential neighbourhood. The school playground adjoins a large public park providing our students with plenty of opportunity to explore nature and play. Both our school's staff and student body reflect Toronto's diversity and we take every opportunity to celebrate our differences and commonalities. We host Gold Circle Daycare which accommodates approximately 60 children ranging in age from 2.5 -10 years. 

Westway Junior School has gone Green! We are in the third year our Eco Schools initiative to help the environment by reducing our carbon footprint. Our initiatives include: greening the schoolyard, active implementation of Reduce, Recycle & Reuse, lights off when not in use and Walk to School Wednesdays. We have achieved Gold Status last year and hope to continue this initiative to support the global thrust toward a greener and sustainable environment.  Westway has also partnered with the Westway Horticulture Society to beautify our school grounds. Its members work with our student body to learn about the importance of caring for and preserving nature.

Westway Mission Statement

Westway Junior School strives to meet the demands of a culturally diverse growing community. It provides a dynamic academic program, which focuses on literacy, mathematics, technology and healthy living to meet the current needs of all its learners. Westway nurtures the social development, personal growth, and leadership of each learner in a safe, friendly, challenging, and disciplined working environment.  Our focus continues to be on Literacy and Numeracy to enhance student achievement.

The Westway community believes that a school functions best when staff, learners and parents treat one another with dignity and respect, and when all members of the school community conduct themselves in a spirit of co-operation. We further believe that clear guidelines made available to all members will help us maintain both a safe and professional learning atmosphere.

Westway PSP (Parent Safety Program)

PSP is a community based, non-confrontational program which facilitates our "KISS & Ride" zone at school.  It provides parent drivers with a safe, convenient avenue to drop off and pick up their children from school.

Volunteers are an integral part of life at Westway.  Parents assist the school in many different ways and we appreciate that.We always welcome parent volunteers, qualified teachers, teacher candidates Early Childhood Educators, CYW and Nursing candidates looking for placements and or classroom experience. We also host Co-op students from a variety of other educational programs.  Their expertise and experience enrich the lives and learning of the entire Westway community.
