Principal's Message

Humbercrest P.S., located west of Jane Street, just north of Bloor, in Toronto, is a large, dual-track Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 school that services over 700 students. About 380 students are registered in the French Immersion programs at the school from Senior Kindergarten to Grade 8, while approximately 320 students, receive instruction in English from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8, Regardless of the language of instruction, Humbercrest P.S. is a great place to learn.
High standards of academic excellence and personal behaviour ensure that all of our students learn to their fullest potential, in a safe and nurturing environment. Enriching programs in Music, Athletics, Science and Technology, and Environmental Studies compliment the Provincial Curriculum. The school features an updated computer lab, an air-conditioned library on the upper level and two separate gymnasiums. The recently reopened Design and Technology area will further enrich the learning of Science. The 'Aim 4 Success' program, initiated by the Student Council, highlights the key characteristics of Humbercrest students: a positive Attitude, Cooperation with staff, peers and community, Excellence in all that we do, and great School Spirit.
The school approaches learning as a partnership between the school and the home. We encourage all Humbercrest parents to become involved in the life of our school. There are a number of ways parents can support--from volunteering in a classroom, to chairing one of the School Council committees. The School Council supports the school's co-curricular and extra-curricular activities and organizes a number of special events to boost community spirit as well as raise funds for the school. Regardless of the involvement, we value the key role parents play in their child's education.
This website has been developed with the support of parents, staff and students, as a way to share information about our school. We hope you find this a helpful way to stay in touch throughout the school year.
I wish you and your child continued success in education.
