Highland Middle School

Highland Middle School is situated on the highest piece of land in the Toronto area, and was named accordingly. Our logo has three mountain peaks - one for each grade. Since our opening in 1975, we have had a proud tradition of addressing the needs of early adolescents, offering a transitional and high achieving program which takes students who arrive in Grade 6 and prepares them for high school. Our feeder high school is A.Y. Jackson Secondary school. We are committed to promoting student well-being, academic success, an equitable, safe, respectful, and inclusive space for all students, parents, and staff.  We promote an environment that is free from hate and discrimination. 

Our school is located in a quiet neighbourhood.  With the exception of a small plaza to our north and a cemetery to our southeast, the area is a residential one.  The community uses our grounds for activities such as softball and soccer and is fortunate to have a park across the street with tennis courts and a play area.  Our school is enriched by our diverse population.  Many students born outside of Canada come from Hong Kong, Iran, China, Korea and Taiwan.  The majority of our students have a primary language other than English, and we have a full and Active English as a second language program to deliver support.
