Finch Public School's Mission Statement

Finch Public School was built in 1951 and is situated within a diverse community made up of single family homes, townhouses, apartment buildings, condominiums, and a housing complex. Finch Flyers Child Care is also housed within the school building.
We have about 300 students enrolled at the school and are working together to create the highest achievement for all our students - whether they are in the regular program, receiving support in English as a second language, in the home school program, or in remedial skills.

During the past few school years, the school, with partial funding from the School Council and support from the TDSB, has increased the effective use of technology in classrooms. We have two portable laptop labs for the school. These portable labs allow students more frequent access to up to date computer technology for research projects and other learning. The students enjoy working with the laptops, and creating new and exciting projects. We also currently have 11 SmartBoards in the school and many classrooms have a data projector in the room. Improving our use of technology in the school is a continued area of focus at Finch Public School.

21st Century Learners

At Finch we are committed to empowering our students with the global competencies required to lead our changing world. As a school, we strive to create, monitor and modify opportunities for our students to engage in critical thinking, problem solving, creating, collaborating, leading, and communicating.Our classroom practices, extracurricular activities and parent engagement initiatives support our students in fostering these skills. Character and Citizenship drive the teaching and learning in our classrooms, where students are challenged and supported to build attitudes and confidence required to make a difference in the world.
