Google Translate Limitations Disclaimer

The electronic translation service on the Toronto District School Board website is hosted by Google Translate, a third party service. The TDSB does not guarantee or warrant the reliability, accuracy or completeness of any translated information.

The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 100 languages, but does not capture all languages or dialects.

The basic translation goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material. Before you act on translated information, we encourage you to confirm any facts that are important to you or may affect any decisions you make.

The Toronto District School Board is committed to equity and community engagement, and by providing this tool, we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English.

William Burgess Elementary School (GR. JK-05)

Where Inquiring Minds Come to Grow!
William Burgess Public School, originally known as Todmorden New School, was built in 1914, and we recently celebrated our centennial. What started as a 12 room building with 13 educators, has now grown into a wheelchair accessible neighbourhood school with 20 classrooms, 44 staff, serving over 370 students. Legends states that the 1928 addition was built with bricks from the old Don Jail.
We have a vibrant and collegial staff who sincerely believe in, and are committed to our purpose: to serve our students. And, our students in turn are welcoming, kind and curious, open to new people, new ides and new learning.
In addition, the school has a partnership with William Burgess YMCA daycare, housed in the building.
