Armour Heights Public School's Mission Statement

Armour Heights Public School is located on the north side of Wilson Avenue, east of Avenue Road. It first opened in 1945 and, at that time, was considered to be a state-of-the-art building.

  • The school serves approximately 370 students
  • We are a highly respected, progressive, academic school
  • Our supportive parent/guardian community, excellent staff and motivated students are all welcome components of our community school
  • We are proud partners of the Canadian Forces and Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club

We maintain high expectations for our students by promoting active citizenship through a focus on critical thinking, character education and social responsibility. 

Equity and Social Justice

Community is created in each classroom through ongoing conversations relating to social and emotional development and relevant issues impacting our students. Armour Heights uses a restorative approach which helps maintain and repair relationships for fostering a sense of social responsibility and shared accountability.

Student Life - Where You Belong

GO TEAM

Students make our school.  Our monthly CHARACTER assemblies help students focus on positive attributes throughout their day at school and also to extend this behaviour in the community.  Many extracurricular activities and field trips provide experiential learning that stimulate thinking and expand learning. 

WHAT SETS US APART

The hard work of our ECO Club parents, students and staff members has brought Armour Heights to a GOLD ECO status in many areas. Our choir director and supportive staff members cultivate student voices to such a level that there is an annual invitation to sing the national anthem at a local Blue Jay game.   The FSA provides lunch time programming to peak student interest to keep our kids learning and engaged during recess.

PARENT AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

The parents and guardians at Armour Heights take a very active part in the school through the Family and School Association which gets involved with fundraising, organizing events (Bike Rodeo, Fun Fair, lunch programmes, musical presentations, Pizza Lunch), welcoming new families, sending out weekly news bulletins and much more. We are able to offer many experiential learning programmes through the FSA funds each year.  Research has shown that students perform better at school and enjoy school life more when their families support the school system.
