School Motto: " We All Belong"
MISSION STATEMENT: Our mission at Kingslake P.S. is to ensure success for all students by providing learning environments that are safe, engaging, challenging, and respectful of diversity.
Our school is located in the northeast quadrant of Don Mills Road and Sheppard Avenue. The school opened on December 10, 1964 and currently serves approximately 235 students. Approximately 80% of the students speak English as a second language at home. At Kingslake P.S. we view such diversity as one of our main strengths. Our school cultivates student voice/student leadership, inclusive practices, and values shared partnerships with our parents. Our school goals are focused around student achievement, well-being and equity.
Our school also serves two special education classes for students with developmental disabilities. The students in our regular program have enjoyed learning about diversity and ways in which to welcome the inclusion of all students at Kingslake. Many of our junior students volunteer their leadership skills to build relationships with their 'Special Buddies' by befriending these children at lunch and recesses.
With so many newcomers to Canada arriving in our school throughout the year, we support a program called 'Welcoming Communities for TDSB Newcomer Youth & Kids' program. Our children are given opportunities to enjoy activities such as table tennis, excursions, crafts, cooking, homework help and leadership development.
