Scarborough Village Public School

At Scarborough Village, we truly embrace the philosophy "it takes a village to raise a child". 

Our School Vision
SVAPS is a school where each person is accepted and valued for who they are and are inspired to learn the best way they can.  Our goal is to create a safe, positive educational experience with high expectations using a wealth of exciting personal, social and academic opportunities designed to prepare students to participate effectively in their world.  We strive to provide a physically, emotionally and socially safe environment encouraging self-advocacy, community involvement, critical thinking and an active sense of responsibility.  All members of our school community are important members of our team and have a voice. 

Scarborough Village Alternative PS, in a new building on a site that has housed a school since the 1840's, combines two innovative programs rich in history and tradition. The only elementary alternative program in the former Scarborough Board of Education was founded in 1972. The program for students with developmental disabilities moved here in the fall of 1998. Our unique integrated and inclusive model gives students opportunities to grow together and meet the needs of a wide variety of children. In 2004, students with Physical Disabilities joined our team. We pride ourselves on a school culture based on inclusivity and strong partnerships with all stakeholders.
