Adam Beck Junior Public School's Mission Statement

The Adam Beck program is based on the Ontario and TDSB initiatives. We aim to:
 
Provide a warm, welcoming, and safe learning environment in which our students build self esteem, confidence and learn to work together in mutual respect and trust. Meet the needs of the whole child - intellectually, physically, socially, and emotionally. Help all students develop skills, knowledge, attitudes and values necessary to strive for academic excellence in all areas of the curriculum and to become self-disciplined, life long learners. Maintain and enhance partnerships between home, school, the community and among staff members. Support programs and initiatives which develop respect for the environment and the wise use of resources.

WHAT SETS US APART

Adam Beck is a dual track school which offers both an English and a French program. Both pathways begin in Kindergarten and end in Grade 6. French Immersion is an optional program which provides intensive instruction in French. 
The French Immersion program develops in students a level of proficiency in French, while maintaining appropriate levels of English language skills. In other curriculum areas, when subjects are taught in French, outcomes parallel those of the regular English program, except that the language of instruction and learning materials are French.
At Adam Beck, Early French Immersion begins in Senior Kindergarten.  All class activities are conducted in French until the end of grade 3.  Students begin to understand and use French in their own time, usually by the end of Senior kindergarten. English as a language is introduced in grade 4 and by grade 6, the English program increases to approximately half of the daily class time.
