Learning, growing and succeeding together!
Downsview Public School is located on Keele Street, just north of Wilson Avenue, and south of Sheppard Avenue West. The first Downsview Public School was erected in 1850. The present building opened in 1948. Our school serves approximately 225 enthusiastic, bright, and industrious students. We have a very diverse, multicultural, multifaith, and multilingual student population. In fact, we have over 20 languages represented at Downsview. Other than English, the most common languages spoken are Turkish, Tagalog, Spanish, Vietnamese, Hungarian, Kurdish and Tamil. This diversity makes for a rich texture, and enriches teaching and learning for everyone. We strive to be inclusive and to make all of our families feel welcome.
Student safety is a priority here at Downsview. We work hard to maintain a safe, caring and nurturing environment, where we look after the needs of the whole child. We have a milk program and a morning meal program. Our Code of Conduct ensures that students feel safe and secure, in order that the primary focus continues to be on teaching and learning for all members of the school community. We are a Future Aces School and we recognize student success and achievement in a variety of ways, such as character education assemblies and concerts. We also have an on-site daycare centre. Friendly Times provides pre-school and school-aged programs. Friendly Times is also the provider for the before and after school program for Kindergarten.
