Kingsview Village Junior School's Mission Statement

Kingsview Village was opened on December 16, 1956.  It is a large and diverse inner city school situated in a high-density area in Etobicoke. To help students reach their full potential Kingsview was selected as a Phase II Inner City Model School in 2007. Kingsview has a collaborative culture that embraces the needs of all of our stakeholder groups. Our students are our primary focus, and we work diligently to promote their success. Our staff is a cohesive and dedicated group of professionals, who continually strive for excellence.  Our community embodies all the strengths of their diverse cultural backgrounds, bringing a wealth of experiences and enriching our school culture.

As the HUB of the community, working together with students, families, schools, and partnerships, we embrace "strength-based" teaching and learning practices, through a "Growth Mindset" lens.

Community Partnerships

We celebrate our community partnerships, such as International Languages, Humber College, Toronto Public Health, and Connecting Families.  Our ongoing partnerships with our Parenting and Family Literacy Centre, P.L.A.S.P., the Somali Women and Children's Support Network, Toronto Parks and Recreation, Rexdale Women's Centre, and Settlement & Education Partnerships (SEPT), located within the school, strive to meet the needs of our community. Our partnerships extend to the Faculties of Education at Ontario universities, the Faculty of Nursing at Humber College, and Faculties of Medicine and Engineering from the University of Toronto. 

In collaboration with our community partners, we provide a before-and-after Kindergarten program through P.L.A.S.P., and a variety of extra-curricular programs. We are delighted to welcome the University of Toronto Engineering students to work with our Grade 3, 4, and 5 classes on S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) projects.  Please feel free to visit the Model Schools website at
