Weston Memorial Junior Public School's Mission Statement
Weston Memorial Junior Public School has been proudly serving families in the town of Weston since 1919. Named in honour of students from the old Weston Public School who gave their lives during World War I, the school combines the charm of yesterday with today's technology in a digital world. Our students, parents, teachers and support staff are united in their commitment to maintaining high standards.
We are the Home of the Weston Stars! We are proud of our students, staff and community. Our "super-star" students are encouraged to excel in all areas of the curriculum and extracurricular activities!
At Weston Memorial JPS, every day ... every child ... is a STAR!
Continous School Improvement
Our School Improvement Plan is based on data driven, equity embedded goals for student achievement, well-being, and Indigenous Education & Sovereignty. This is aligned with TDSB's Multi-Year Strategic Plan. Student success is supported by a strong school/home partnership.

WHAT SETS US APART
Weston Memorial JPS has always been a strong supporter of early learning and engaging all of our learners to ensure there is a culture of inquiry and play-based learning in our classrooms in a variety of intentional ways.
We have a very active and supportive School Council and parent community. Our home and school partnership is very strong and important to us!
We created a long-range, ECO Schools plan to build on our outdoor classroom, enhance our outdoor play areas for all students, focus on litterless lunches, recycling and composting, and working together to be mindful and respectful of our planet Earth! We recently had twelve native trees planted in our junior yard and some planted in our primary (west) yard.
Thanks to a Live Green Toronto Community Grant and TDSB funding, we were able to revitalize our yard and outdoor classroom space!
