Military Trail Public School's Mission Statement

Military Trail Public School is celebrating our 50th anniversary this year!!  We are a vibrant community school. Groundbreaking began in 1968 and the school first opened it's doors to students in 1970. Since that time, we have served the educational needs of the community. We proudly support 500 students from JK to 8 who represent many different cultures. We are fortunate to have support for our special needs programs, ESL instruction, a Parenting Centre to help our families that are new to the school or country, and 3 Settlement Workers on site to help families adjust to a new country.  We strive for academic excellence to ensure that we are preparing all students to be successful in a rapidly changing world.


Military Trail Public School offers a balanced literacy program that promotes higher order thinking and a focus on reading and writing initiatives. We support the needs of all students for success and provide opportunities to involve the community in literacy initiatives. After-school support programs and volunteer initiatives support this goal throughout the school environment. Special events such as Family Literacy Night and participation in National Literacy Day celebrations further support this initiative.

More Information About Military Trail Public School


At Military Trail we are dedicated to improving EQAO scores and report card results in Numeracy. Extra funds have been dedicated to support staff development, and to acquire written materials and manipulatives to support student achievement. We have seen success by offering after-school mathematics for support and student mentorship opportunities such as License to Learn.


We are proud of our intermediate students at Military Trail and of the initiatives that have supported their academic growth and involvement in the community.   Our students have the advantage of working with our guidance department to assist them with making important secondary school decisions. 

Early Learning Program (ELP)

The ELP is the Ministry of Education’s provincial initiative that brings full-day early learning to the Kindergarten program for young learners 4 and 5 years-of-age. Military Trail Public School offers a full day kindergarten to the community.  Our younger families are also supported through our Parenting Centre and Settlement Workers.


We are integrating the use of multimedia projectors, digital cameras, a computer lab, a language lab, and interactive white boards across the curriculum.  Our new Elmos, laptops and Promethean Boards have been well received.

Student Life - Where You Belong


Students have the opportunity to participate in many extra-curricular activities such as sports, clubs, and excursions.  The varied student life provides links to the outer community and promotes positive social behaviour. Offerings include concerts and performances, dance workshops, folk dancing, choir, visual arts clubs; house league and competitive sports, slo-pitch, cricket, basketball, badminton, cross country, soccer, track and field, volleyball; clubs and leadership opportunities such as student council and safety patrol.  Social opportunities include Outdoor Education, Breakfast and Nutrition programs, Bullying Prevention and Peer Mediators.


Students at MTPS are keenly aware of their role in the larger global community. Following the tremendous success of the World Tour in 2008, students from this diverse neighbourhood continued to share their experiences and celebrations within the community.
In 2009, Military Trail families, students and staff contributed to International Flavours, a cookbook gathering the many recipes and photo moments from the World Tour. Students also continued to actively learn about pressing world issues affecting children today as part of their work in the Youth In Action Team (YIA). The YIA Team has also actively raised funds to support development projects with Free the Children – an international organization of children helping children through education. 

Through leadership training and supportive staff facilitation, the students launched a campaign to build a school for disadvantaged students in Ecuador. Supporting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, YIA actively pursues this challenging and noble goal that will affect many children for years into the future!


The Military Trail school community enjoys many partnerships to support student achievement.  Partnerships include Co-operative education with many secondary schools in our area; Liaison with Mornelle Court Community Hub, and The Toronto Foundation for Student Success.  Students are also supported through Aisling/Discoveries Services; Settlement and Education Partnerships in Toronto; U of T (Education programme); Frontier College; Centennial College Child and Youth Worker program; International Language programs;  Agendas for on-going family communication and Volunteer readers
