Eglinton Junior Public School's Mission Statement

Eglinton Public School has served this community for over 100 years, celebrating a century at the corner of Mt. Pleasant and Eglinton. We have a long-standing tradition of community involvement and school spirit. The school serves close to 600 students from K to Gr.6. We strive to create a positive and dynamic learning environment where effort and achievement are celebrated and where everyone is treated with mutual courtesy, respect and understanding.

We are proud that our school reflects the diversity of Toronto. Our students come from over 40 different countries. Over 30 different languages are spoken by students in our school. Staff and parents are committed to providing rich learning experiences for our students.

Critical Pathways

We are currently working in professional learning teams on Teaching Learning Critical Pathways. At the Primary and Junior level, teachers work together to determine areas of curricular focus based on student achievement data. Teams develop common assessments jointly analyze student work to ensure consistency of marking across grade teams. Next steps to learning are then developed on a collaborative basis to support student success.
