Seventh Street Junior School's Mission Statement

Seventh Street School is located in the former community of New Toronto. The original school opened in 1922. In 1989, a new school was built on the school yard and the old building was then demolished.
The school has approximately 200 students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 5. We have a diverse community comprised of students from 16 different countries and speaking 19 different languages. 

Seventh Street enjoys an excellent partnership with The Lakeshore Community Childcare Centre (LCCC), which offers an excellent before and after school program as well as daycare services for children 18 months and older.
