A Pathway to Learning
Park Lane Public School: "A Pathway to Learning". Our school provides a safe, caring and supportive learning environment for students. All students receive an individualized educational program designed to foster participation and independence through the development of functional communication skills, functional academics and functional life skills. Park Lane serves students with developmental disabilities ranging in age from 4 to 21. In addition, many students are challenged with Physical Disabilities, Vision and/or Hearing difficulties, ASD or other serious medical conditions. Our staff assist each student to meet their unique challenges, identify their personal potential and move towards the greatest possible level of independence.
Park Lane School first opened its doors in 1968 but was closed as a public school in June 1980 due to declining enrollment. Subsequently, various private schools were housed at Park Lane. Central Ontario College provided year-round schooling for students in grades 11-13 primarily from Hong Kong and Malaysia. It later became The Toronto Learning Centre, serving the needs of students with Learning Disabilities. In 1990, Park Lane School reopened as a special education facility under the The Metropolitan School Board. It was transferred to the North York Board of Education in 1995 and is now part of the Toronto District School Board.
