Mill Valley Junior School's Mission Statement

Mill Valley Junior School is a small Kindergarten to Grade 5 school with a strong sense of community. The school officially opened on December 8, 1969. It was built as an open-concept school. Over the years walls have been erected in the pod areas to create separate classrooms.
In September 2018 Mill Valley opened a Diagnostic Kindergarten class. The Mill Valley Child Care Centre is located on the second floor.
Mill Valley's school crest depicts a mill in the valley along Etobicoke Creek. Just as the waters of the creek kept the mill wheel moving, we at Mill Valley Junior School endeavour to keep the education of our students ever-moving to keep them in tune with our ever-changing world.
