Inglenook Community School's Mission Statement
Approx. Enrolment: 81
Inglenook is a small, friendly alternative community high school with a family-like atmosphere. Inglenook offers Grade 10, 11 & 12 programs which includes courses that allow for a wide range of post-secondary planning destinations. The school is very community-focused: teachers, parents, and students are all involved in school decision-making. Inglenook offers a special program called Outreach, which takes place every Wednesday afternoon.
Heart of the City: Because of our location, teachers use the rich resources of the city, such as art galleries, museums, radio stations, movie theatres, the Ontario Science Centre, and a host of other educational sites. All courses invite active student participation, and both teachers and students find the often passionate debates in courses to be intellectually stimulating.
IngleCulture: Inglenook offers students an enriched educational environment including such events and projects as our Art Gallery, Gardening, Poetry Day, Annual Conference, Talent nights, theatre excursions, school trips, and Drama productions.
Visual Art Literacy: We live in a visual world of images. Every course will explore a unit through visual arts.
Inglenook is a community!
In the year 2014, Inglenook will did celebrate its 40th year as an exciting, friendly alternative high school. The large number of students who return regularly to visit Inglenook attests to its success as an "inglenook"--a warm place by the fire.
