Chine Drive Public School is perched on the Scarborough Bluffs overlooking Lake Ontario. This small school of 155 pupils is south of Kingston Road and east of Midland Avenue. Chine Drive P.S. was officially opened in September 1957, although the school had already been in operation for two years, housed in portables. Providing a safe, caring environment in which children can learn and grow continues to be the focus of our school. Our school location and grounds also provide opportunities for our students to learn in a natural outdoor setting which supports our Eco Schools goals. Our Mission statement guides us "to foster academic excellence, lifelong learning, social awareness and mutual respect in a safe and welcoming environment."
In the pursuit of academic excellence, Chine Staff continues to plan in Professional Learning Communities. Teachers work in a Collaborative Inquiry Learning model with a focus on increasing student achievement in Literacy and Numeracy. Chine Drive is committed to engaging our students through technology. Throughout the school, use of assistive technology helps teachers to bring learning to life. Chine Drive is also very keen on bringing Sports and Arts to life. A variety of sports and extra-curricular clubs allows for student participation based on personal interests and abilities.
