Blythwood Junior Public School's Mission Statement

Blythwood is located in a North Toronto residential area. The school was built over 85 years ago. In 1992, a multi-purpose room was added that serves as a recreational and meeting facility in the community. The school serves over 400 students from JK to Grade 6. Most of the children are from English speaking homes with a low rate of mobility. The school has a small Early Language Learner population. The school grounds border a ravine and are used extensively by the community all year round for sporting and other group activities. Staff work collaboratively to provide a positive and enriching learning environment for students. Parent volunteers work in partnership with staff to provide a rich variety of activities for our students.



Students at Blythwood continue to maintain excellent EQAO scores for both Grade 3 and Grade 6. The staff is committed to maintaining these excellent results.
Extra support is given to students who are not meeting Provincial Standards through resource programmes and extra help sessions. Staff  access Literacy and Numeracy Instructional leaders, Learning Coaches and ESL teachers to support their programmes and to further enrich their classrooms. Students are well prepared for the EQAO assessment and accommodations are provided where necessary.
