Avondale Elementary Alternative School

Unire: one puzzle, many pieces


Welcome to Avondale Elementary Alternative School !

For almost 40 years Avondale has offered an alternative vision of education in the public system to students throughout Toronto. Temporarily located at Bayview Middle School, Avondale is a small, safe, family-like school with an intimate and personal feel.  At Avondale, students learn in a rigorous academic setting where close working relationships with staff and students are valued and celebrated.   Our vision is to create a safe and nurturing learning and teaching environment that supports optimal development and excellence across all domains. 

Avondale Public School and Avondale Elementary Alternative School are innovative schools that have provided high quality education for students across Toronto for over 25 years. The west wing of the Avondale campus has embraced many identities over the past twenty years, transforming from a local community school into a Board-wide natural science museum. In September 2002, the west wing was officially re-opened as Avondale Public School (K-gr.8) serving the local community, and has blossomed into an exciting and engaged learning environment.

Our Mission
To enable all students to reach high levels of achievement and well-being
and to acquire the knowledge, skills
and values they need to become responsible, contributing members of
a democratic and sustainable society.
