Glenview Mission Statement::
“A place to learn, a time to grow, education to last a lifetime!”
2018/19 School Year
Glenview is a vibrant large senior school with over 775 students in Grades 7 and 8. We welcome students into our regular English program, French Immersion and Extended French. Students are involved in a wide-variety of activities such as sports, music, drama, arts-based programs and technology. We offer leadership opportunities to our students through our Student Parliament, Board initiatives such as Super Council and school-wide events.
With 5 more weeks of school remaining in 2018, Glenview continues to be bustling with activities from early in the morning to the early evening. Our students are involved in numerous sports teams, rehearsals for music, and clubs featuring various activities and interests. So far our teams have brought in 10 banners including 2 City Championships. Students are getting ready for our Holiday Concert which will showcase the many talents our students possess.
The grade 8s have started the process to learn more about High Schools. Open Houses to welcome community to learn more about programs offered have been occurring. Starting in the New Year our Guidance Counsellor will spend time with our grade 8s to review and complete course selections.
We are also starting the process to welcome grade 7 students for September 2019. We will be having our Open House on Wednesday, January 23rd at 6:00 pm. The deadline for the Extended French Program applications is Monday, February 4th. Please return completed Extended French Program applications to your Junior School. Should we have more applicants than spots available, we will follow the TDSB policy and a lottery system will determine the applicants for the program.

Glenview Senior Public School was opened in 1966 to give our grades 7 and 8 students a period of transition and adjustment between the neighbourhood elementary school and the large secondary school. A formal Mission Statement was adopted to serve as a guideline for positive change and to provide a framework to define relationships with students, staff, parents and the community.
We offer programs that aim to foster academic development, a love of learning, critical and creative thinking and the ability to adapt to change.
We are dedicated to providing an environment in which our students build self-esteem and confidence, value differences and learn to work together in mutual respect and trust.
We recognize that these objectives are best promoted when students, staff, parents, administrators, the Toronto District School Board and the wider community work in partnership. We trust that Your child’s Glenview experience will be a positive one. We are looking forward to getting to know all of you and to working with your children.
