Our Classrooms

At École Owen Public School we do our best to innovate, create and inspire!

École Owen Public School is located in an area of York Mills that was originally the St. Andrew's Golf Course. École Owen is a dual track school offering instruction in both English (JK - Gr. 5) and French Immersion (SK - Gr. 5). Our school has multi-cultural diversity with one third of the children speaking a language other than English at home. 

At Owen we strive to enable all students to reach high levels of achievement and to acquire the knowledge, skills, and values they need to become responsible members of a democratic society. We value and are committed to providing a learning environment that is safe, nurturing, positive and respectful. Our Code of Conduct is rooted in commitment to our duties, respect for others and pride in ourselves. Safety is a priority and permeates all aspects of school life.

 Owen has lots of opportunities for our students to learn how to collaborate with others as well as develop into leaders who can inspire others.  Our school programs align throughout the grades allowing students to build on their previous knowledge.

Class Placements

Student placements are decided by our Placement Committee, which consists of the sending and receiving teachers, the specialist teachers and the administration. The members of the committee follow the school’s placement policy and have the best interests of the children in mind. The following are examples of our guidelines used by teaching staff when placing students into next year’s class groupings. 

They include: 

  • Academic Strengths and Needs
  • Gender Balance
  • Social / Emotional Strengths and Needs
  • Class size

Occasionally, there may be personal information that is unknown to the school staff that may affect the child’s placement. This might include family changes, recent learning assessments or medical situations. Please feel free to share this information with your child’s present teacher and administration. 

In our network of schools, students and parents are notified of their class placement for the school year on the first day of school. We are trying to eliminate any possibility of disappointing or causing undue stress to children if classes need to be restructured.
