Golf Road Junior Public School's Mission Statement

Golf Road Junior Public School, opened in 1953, is located on Scarborough Golf Club Road.  It is situated a short distance from the prestigious golf course from which it takes its name. Originally a Kindergarten to Grade 8 school, Golf Road became a junior school for pupils from Kindergarten to Grade 6 when the neighbouring senior school was built in 1968. 
 
Golf Road proudly reflects Toronto's diverse population.  We provide a caring, supportive and safe school environment that focuses on student achievement and developing the whole child through extra and co-curricular activities.

Our Value Statement

Golf Road is committed to empowering students with the confidence, social skills and intellectual capacity required to successfully thrive and compete in school and in our society.     
 
At Golf Road, we understand that our children represent our hopes and dreams for the future, and they deserve the best education we can give them. We believe every student has the potential to succeed, and we are dedicated to making a difference in children's lives by encouraging them to open their minds to learning, discovery and achievement.

More Information About Golf Road Junior Public School

Golf Road School Child Care Centre

Golf Road School Child Care Centre offers a seamless day for children 21/2 to 12 years of age. The program fosters development in the areas of cognitive learning, physical activity, social development and emotional growth. The program offers nutritious snacks and catered lunches daily.  Special programming for the summer includes field trips.

Literacy: Learning for Life

At Golf Road, literacy instruction combines language and literature-rich activities coupled with lessons that are meaningful, active and engaging. We understand that students need explicit instruction, along with practice, feedback, and reflection, in order to make connections and articulate their learning. Such instruction stresses the love of language.

Mathematics: Thinking Critically

Effective teaching in mathematics requires the creation of an intellectual environment where serious engagement in mathematical thinking is the norm.  In our mathematics classrooms, lessons are taught explicitly, technology and tools are utilized and open-ended questions are posed. Students learn from each other, observe, analyze and discuss strategies and procedures.

At Golf Road, Character Matters

At Golf Road, we believe that effective character education requires an intentional, proactive, and comprehensive approach that promotes the core values in all phases of school life. 

We believe that core values such as caring, honesty, fairness, responsibility and respect for self and others should be treated as a matter of obligation to be upheld by all.

WHAT SETS US APART

Around the hallways and in the classrooms of Golf Road Junior Public School is an exciting energy that's felt whether you're a student, teacher, staff member or parent. It's upbeat. It's happy. It's pervasive. And by and large, it comes from our progressive approach to balancing traditional, by-the-book academics with out-of-the-box learning techniques that motivate our students to perform well beyond the status quo.
 
In addition to this learning style, parents and partners-in education embrace the school’s vision and provide learning opportunities for students to develop to their fullest potential as literate, responsible citizens.
 
Golf Road’s rich diversity is also special. From this, our students glean a more immediate understanding and respect of ideals such as acceptance, empathy and integrity. Friendships are made through the years at Golf Road where, together, students work as hard as they play.
