Vradenburg Junior Public School's Mission Statement

Vradenburg Junior Public School opened its doors in 1955. The school was named after the Vradenburg family, the original settlers of the land on which the school is located.
The school has achieved a reputation for providing a well-balanced program, both curricular and extra-curricular. The school serves approximately 300 students and is proud to be known as a community school.
Vradenburg Jr. P. S. has a longstanding tradition of parental and community involvement, as many of the residents were once Vradenburg students.

Vradenburg Jr. P. S. is located in a well-established neighbourhood and its population reflects the rich and diverse cultural mosaic of Toronto.
The hallways of the school are lined with a variety of pictures and memorabilia that span the five decades since the school was opened. We have a well-equipped computer lab and library resource centre. All of our classrooms are networked and have Internet access. In addition to the regular program, the school is home to the Vradenburg Child Care Centre and the Strides Centre, which is a Primary Day Treatment Program for children ages 8 to 10 years.

High Academic Standards

At Vradenburg JPS, we honor the TDSB's Multi-Year Strategic Plan as we support student achievement and well-being. Our dedicated staff members work collaboratively in Professional Learning Teams to offer excellent academic programming and to inspire students toward life-long learning.  We continue to focus on building and improving our literacy and numeracy skills, as well as the Global Competencies' 4C's - creativity, communication, collaboration, critical thinking - to become global citizens.

Character Development

At Vradenburg JPS, we maintain a positive, safe and inclusive environment - a home away from home where all students belong.  We follow the TDSB's Build Character/Build Success strategies and come together for assemblies each month to acknowledge and celebrate the successes within our school community. 

The Arts

Vradenburg has had a rich tradition in the Arts.  We look forward to once again enjoying choirs, band and drama presentations - by our students and for our students - since we know many of our students will continue to pursue the Arts as they graduate to middle school.  

Athletics and Intramural Programs

A healthy, active lifestyle is important to us at Vradenburg and, historically, we have had many teams participating in TDESAA sports. We look forward to reviving extracurricular and intramural sports programs that will promote cooperation, teamwork and health & wellness!
