Island Public/Natural Science School

Give Respect - Get Respect


The Island Public/Natural Science School dates back to 1888. It is located a short ferry ride from the city on the Toronto Islands at 30 Centre Island Park.

Three programs are run from the school: a Kindergarten to Grade 6 Day School that services the Island & Harbourfront community, a residential Outdoor Ed. program for up to 60 students in Grades 5 and 6, and a non-profit daycare: Gibraltar Day Nursery. Day school students are transported to the school by ferry and school bus. We have 11 classes which includes the Full-day Kindergarten program which are supported by Music, Core French, Physical And Health Education, Media Literacy, Dance & Drama and Special Education. The outdoor ed. program offers a three day two over-night excursion.

The building was designed with an environmental focus which includes a large Common Room, Library/Resource Centre, Gymnasium, Outdoor Court Yard, two Science Labs, and a Greenhouse.  The school was equipped with a grey water system, solar panels, and photo voltaic panels to provide an example of how technology at that time, could benefit our environment.
