Our school Motto is simple yet profound. Simcoe students and staff; strive, serve, succeed and shine.
Elizabeth Simcoe Junior Public School is a dynamic school that has a strong sense of community. The school is located in Guildwood Village in Scarborough, on the north side of Sylvan Avenue and adjacent to the Scarborough Bluffs. The expansive school grounds provide plenty of space for physical education, school sport teams, intra murals and outdoor play.
The school opened in 1963. It was named in honour of John Graves Simcoe's wife, Elizabeth Simcoe. The school population is relatively stable. Many of the children who enter Junior Kindergarten remain with us until the end of Grade 6. English is the language spoken at home for the majority of our students.
Our school delivers Special Education programs including a Primary Communications class, a Junior Communications class and a Special Education gifted program for junior students from nearby communities as well as from our own community. Integrated programs are key and are provided for our Special Education students. We are committed to an integrated school environment that is inclusive and equitable for all our students and honours multiples learning styles and differentiated curriculum delivery.
