My experience at King Edward?
When I came to the Open House last year, I was nervous. Lots of teachers, lots of freedom and lots of choices to make!  I wasn't sure if I wanted to go to King Edward - but now I have been here a whole year, I realize that I made a good decision!  I have made new friends and learnt a lot more in the hallways - I had thought that you only learn in the classroom with a teacher. My teachers have encouraged me to learn from situations, events, people (not just the textbooks)!  Teachers here are all unique - they are not cookie cutters.  They each have their own personality, their own style.  Some are difficult to like but you definitely learn from them.  I feel like I have a voice.

WHAT SETS US APART

As a quadruple-track school Kindergarten to Grade 8, we are unique in many ways. Our students in the Grade 7 Immersion program mostly come from Dewson & Palmerston, students in the Grade 7 Gifted program mostly come from Clinton and other schools across the city. Students in the French Extended program, come from many different schools and Students in the English Grade 7 program come from our feeder schools.  The diverse mix of students add a very refreshing dimension to our culturally and socio-economically diverse community.  We organize our school so that it facilitates specialty teaching in subject areas in the Grades 7 & 8, thus enabling our students to receive an intentionally focused learning opportunities.  We also have SMART Boards and Promethean Board that are actively used by staff and students to enrich the technology component.  Spanish and Mandarin languages are offered as part of the integrated school day. 

PARENT AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

King Edward Public School is a community-centred school, where parent involvement is welcomed and valued, and an emphasis is placed on a partnership between home and school. The King Edward School Council and parents are actively involved in all areas of school life including safety, greening of the school, planning, implementation of school policies, fund raising and special events such as the Art Fair, Fall barbecue, Teacher & Appreciation Luncheon, Community Clean-up, Partnerships with St. Stephens' Community Centre, COSTI Centre, Terry Fox Run and Jump Rope for Heart to name a few. 
We also have enriching partnerships with Ryerson University, York, OISE, Queen's and George Brown.  We continually engage in inviting community authors, guest speakers, industry professionals and tradespeople to share their expertise with our students.
