Agincourt Junior Public School's Mission Statement

Agincourt Junior Public School is an architectural landmark located on Lockie Avenue near Midland and Sheppard Avenues. When the school first opened in 1914, it consisted of four classrooms from Grades 1 to 12. With two additions over the years, we now have eight classrooms with grades K-6,  a library/resource centre and two portables. This historic building has a unique authenticity and charm ideal for meeting the needs of our dynamic community, which includes approximately 230 students representing many different language groups and cultures.

Eco School

Agincourt Junior Public School cares about the environment and our community. We've planted new trees on school property, prioritized recycling, reduced photocopying, conducted park clean-ups, and focused on energy conservation. We have even begun to tap some of our trees to make maple syrup! In the future, we hope to establish a pollinator garden and an outdoor classroom. Finally, the establishment of an EcoSquad, comprised of teachers and students, ensures that we maintain our commitment to the environment.

Formal reading and writing instruction begins in Kindergarten. Levelled books and Developmental Reading Assessments are an important part of our literacy program. Special Education and English as a Second Language are in place to serve children with special needs. All students are expected to reflect on their areas of growth and set goals for improvement.


Math manipulative's, the Nelson math program and the use of computer software enhance our hands on approach to mathematical investigation and problem solving. Our focus is on a balanced delivery of the five strands (Number Sense and Numeration, Measurement, Geometry and Spatial Sense, Pattering and Algebra, Data Management and Probability) in the Ontario Curriculum.

Character Education

The promotion of harmonious relationships among different linguistic and cultural groups is a priority. Collaborative learning, problem solving and conflict resolution are part of the daily program. Through monthly Character Education assemblies students are exposed to, reminded of and celebrated for exhibiting positive character traits.

Student Life - Where You Belong


Agincourt Jr. is a small school with a family atmosphere. Parents, staff and students work
closely to set high expectations for academic achievement and courteous behaviour. We are an inclusive community school with a wide range of co-curricular programs; Music, Drama, Dance, French Club, Eco-Squad, Folk Dance and Computer Studies. We encourage students to participate in these programs during and after school to discover unique experiences.


We are very pleased with the performance of our students in Literacy and Mathematics reviews over the past six years. Our EQAO scores are significantly above provincial and board averages. The factors for this success, we believe, stem from effective teaching practices, ongoing professional development, a focus on early literacy and mathematics, Board and Ministy intiatives, the contribution of volunteers and strong support from families.


Agincourt Jr. is proud to have forged strong ties with the following Community Partners: Agincourt Community Services Association, Canada Trust Friends of the Environment, Agincourt Public Library, The International Coastal Clean Up, Legion Poppy Sales, Terry Fox Foundation and the Toronto Police Services.
We have a vibrant and active School Council who fundraise for school initiatives. We also have several regular parent volunteers who assist in the classrooms, in the library, for special events and on excursions.
We appreciate our partnerships with Niagara University Teacher Candidates, Ryerson Nursing and ECE Students and York University Psychology Department.
