At Tumpane, we work hard, we work smart and we work together for success!
Tumpane Public School first opened in 1951. It expanded to include the French Immersion program in 1985. Tumpane Public School provides programs that support and reflect the initiatives of the Toronto District School Board and the Ministry of Education. Our goal is to provide a well-balanced curriculum that provides our students with the knowledge and skills for life-long learning. We ensure that all students have equitable opportunities for success. Tumpane Public School is a dual track school offering both English and French Immersion programs. Students attending the English track reside in the Jane Street and Wilson Avenue communities. Students enrolled in our French Immersion Program hail from 16 different schools within the TDSB.
Our school focus is for all students to develop proficiency in reading. Guided reading is a key instructional practice used by all Tumpane staff to provide students with an opportunity to receive individual attention for the purpose of promoting independent reading skills. We believe "readers are leaders" and with that in mind, we include Character Education as a integral part of the curriculum. We recognize and celebrate character and academic achievement as central to building a safe and caring environment, building a culture of excellence.
