The Toronto District School Board and Toronto Catholic District School Board are experiencing school bus delays. In particular, parents of students who use Attridge Transportation, Wheelchair Accessible Transit or Sharp Bus Lines should expect significant delays and the possibility that some buses may not be running due to an unanticipated bus driver shortage. We are working to fix this issue as soon as possible.

Africentric Alternative School

Welcome to our school web site. The Africentric Alternative School accepts students from JK to Grade 8 and is located within the Sheppard Public School at 1430 Sheppard Avenue West (near Keele Street).  Although the Africentric Alternative School is in Toronto’s west end, any student living in Toronto can attend the school.

The Africentric Alternative School has three key outcomes for its students:

  • High academic achievement 
  • High self-pride 
  • A high motivation to succeed 

A unique feature of the Africentric Alternative School will be the integration of the diverse perspectives, experiences and histories of people of African descent into the provincial mandated curriculum. The program will also feature a Parenting and Family Literacy Centre for pre-school children.
