Walter Perry Junior Public School's Mission Statement

Walter Perry Junior Public School, is located in the Scarborough Junction community on Falmouth Avenue south of Eglinton. The school first opened in 1954. The school is named after a prominent community leader William Walter Perry. At Walter Perry, we work together to make our school "a great place to be!"

  • At Walter Perry, the staff is dedicated to supporting all children and parents in our community to ensure that each student achieves academic, athletic, social and interpersonal success
  • Walter Perry is a Model Inner City School as designated by the Ministry and focusing on student and parent engagement.
  •  We are a TRIBES and Character Development school promoting  the ten  TDSB character attributes.

Walter Perry continues its involvement in the Teaching Learning Critical Pathway process, we actively engage in teacher moderation in assessment and planning. We have increased our focus on the use of success criteria and descriptive feedback. Our staff share ideas and practise's at regularly scheduled multi school hub meetings. Walter Perry continues to use the highly engaging and interactive Promethean white board technology and a greater number of staff are being trained in its use. 

Student Nutrition = Student Learning

Students need to eat a healthy breakfast before school and maintain proper nutrition throughout the day. A well fed student is a student ready to learn. To this end, Walter Perry has a superb snack program. All students are eligible and all that is required is written parental permission and allergy information. 

Lunches are also important. We ask parents not to send Uber Eats or Skip the Dishes due to the disruptive nature.  

If you wish to take your child home for lunch please feel free to do so. Otherwise all students will have lunch in their classrooms supervised by our Lunchroom Supervisors and grade 6 leaders.

Home - School Communication

This is an essential part of student success. The more parents know about what their children are doing at school, the more they can support both them and the school to ensure work and assignments are promptly and accurately completed. Our two main communication tools are the student agenda and our website. We urge parents to use these tools on a daily basis.
