Humber Summit Middle School is located near Finch and Islington. It draws students from a large attendance area, reaching from near Islington and Steeles to Weston and Wilson. The 540 students Humber Summit serves represent diverse cultural, racial, and faith backgrounds. Our vision is based on three priorities: Student Achievement, Parent and Community Engagement and Financial Stability. We will use the School Effectiveness Framework as a tool to develop, implement and monitor our progress, based on an analysis of data (EQAO, CASI, DRA and Math Assessment). By using this framework we will be able to implement a more strategic approach, an intentional allocation of resources and equity of outcome for all students.
Our programs are designed to foster the development of the whole student. Key components are:
Literacy, including Literacy Enrichment Academic Program (LEAP) and English as a Second Language (ESL); Numeracy, and Science a rich arts experience in Visual Arts, Instrumental Music, and Drama personal and social development through Health and Physical Education, as well as social skills, career education, and Student Leadership programs a safe school environment involving our Code of Behaviour, Safe Arrival Procedures and the Future Aces Program.
