Flemington Public School's Mission Statement

Flemington Public School is diverse in origin, united in achievement. The school is located in the Lawrence Heights Community, north of Lawrence Avenue, west of Bathurst Street. The school opened in 1958 and has a diverse student population, representing many different languages and cultural groups.

  • Approximately 260 students representing many different languages attend the school. More than 60% of our students have a primary language other than English.

Flemington offers:

  • Primary and Junior Home School Program
  • ESL Program
  • Junior Behaviour Program
  • Diagnostic Kindergarten Program

  • Flemington staff, students and parents work together to provide a positive, safe and nurturing learning environment. Staff and students are expected to display the character traits of respect, responsibility, empathy, integrity, honesty, fairness, cooperation, caring, teamwork and perseverance.
  • Students are taught to be responsible for their learning and behaviours. Our school-wide social skills initiative include a Character Education Program and Second Steps.
  •  Lawrence Height Daycare Centre is located in the building.
  • Model Schools Initiative

    The fundamental underpinning of the Model Schools initiative is that it is essential to support both students and their families within the context of their school community. Funding is given to provide opportunities for families which would not be available to them otherwise. For instance through this initiative many parents and their children went to the zoo, Ontario Place and the Science Centre. For some families, this was their visit to these places.  Focus is placed on supporting the unique needs of students in inner city neighbourhoods to achieve fairness and equity and foster an inclusive culture.
