Principal's Message

It is with great excitement that I join the Parkdale community!  I look forward to working with families and staff to bring about the best outcomes in academic achievement and well-being.

Parkdale Junior & Senior Public School is a dual track school (English and French Immersion) comprised of a diverse community where students from many different cultures come together to learn and develop skills that will be the backbone to their future success. At Parkdale we believe that all children come to school with the capacity and desire to learn and it is our job to build on the unique strength of each child.  We believe that all families are unique and resilient and are a valuable resource to the school.

We pride ourselves on being a community of families and staff who work together in partnership for the benefit of all. We are committed to supporting our students and the school community based on the five essential components of Model Schools:

  1. Innovative teaching and learning practices;
  2. Support services to meet the social, emotional, and physical well-being of our students;
  3. The outreach necessary for the school to become the heart of the community;
  4. Research, review, and evaluation of students and programs;
  5. A commitment to the sharing of successful practices.

We strive to educate the whole child using culturally relevant curriculum, including the development of social and emotional skills, character education, along with helping students to achieve academic excellence. Parkdale educators are committed to equity and empowering “student voice”. We believe in the success of all our students and honour all of their achievements.
