About Us

At C.R. Marchant Every Student...A success.

C.R. Marchant was one of the first middle schools in Ontario and continues to demonstrate its commitment to our community. Our name honours the accountant who served for the Weston Board of Education when the school opened in 1948. The school is anchored in the old town of Weston and has a tradition of providing quality educational programs for its learners. The neighbourhood has evolved over the years and continues to grow in cultural diversity, now serving students and their families from many parts of the world as well as descendants of past Weston generations.

Our goal is to enable all of our students to acquire the knowledge, skills and values needed to become responsible members of society. Many opportunities are built into our school programs to encourage and foster positive behaviours, enhance growth and self-esteem, and celebrate successes. Students are recognized through our monthly Student Recognition Assembly. Through the House System, our students are encouraged to be actively involved in all aspects of school and community life. Our role in the community is enhanced by such activities as our annual Terry Fox Run, holiday food drives and encouragement of students to volunteer in local agencies.
