Principal's Message

At Charles H Best Middle School we view the engagement and relationships between family, schools and our community as one that is to be fostered and continuously nurtured. When we all work together to support student learning we believe that our students tend to do better in school, stay in school longer and like school more. We have built a school community that welcomes outside partnerships (Big Brothers, TDSB Newcomers, Human Moves, North York Community House, etc.) as a way to provide a variety of activities and opportunities for students to engage in their learning and connect with their community.

We also have a dynamic and committed School Council with representatives that directly reflect our diverse community. We encourage parents and other community members to take an active part in the various aspects of learning that takes place within our school on a daily basis.

We have a dedicated Staff that always puts students first. Our dedicated staff includes Teachers, Child and Youth Workers, Special Needs Assistants, Educational Assistants, Office Administrator, Guidance Counsellor, Social Worker, Psychologist, and our Custodial Staff who all work together to support our vision of a school that will be an inclusive and caring community of staff, students and parents fostering the intellectual, social, emotional and physical development of each child. They put their hearts into everthing they do to help our students be engaged, encouraged, and excited to learn! They work hard to make Charles H Best Middle School a warm and friendly place, while at the same time maintaining high standards for student learning and behaviour.

We at Charles H Best see our community as truly the “BEST”.
