Food for Kids Program

We know that the closure of schools has been difficult for many families, especially those who rely on school-based Student Nutrition Programs. The TDSB and the Toronto Foundation for Student Success have teamed up to provide families at your school with $50 grocery store food cards (one per TDSB student). If your family would benefit from this card, please complete the registration form online.

The staff is committed to building a strong partnership with students and parents in order to provide a productive, relevant learning environment which includes an extensive co-curricular program to engage.

An Extended French program is offered in Grades 6, 7 and 8 where students study half of their timetable in French. There is also currently a "late start" Extended French program that starts in Grade 7. A French Immersion program planned to begin in 2024. There is an opportunity to continue in bilingual programs in secondary school.

A pilot of an Indigenous Language and Culture program will continue this school year.

There is a focus on inquiry-based learning, and community service. Indigenous Education and Equity issues are embedded throughout our curriculum.

Queen Alexandra is a part of the Model Schools for Inner City initiative. To achieve the goals of the initiative, we adhere to the five following essential components: 

  1. Innovative teaching and learning practices.
  2. Support Services to meet the social, emotional, and physical well-being of our students.
  3. Continuing the outreach necessary for the school to become the heart of the community.
  4. Research, review, and evaluation of students and programs.
  5. Commitment to share successful practices. 

Queen Alexandra M.S. also provides English as a Second Language program (ESL), as well as a range of Special Education programs including resource support, fully integrated home school program (HSP) support, enrichment, and intensive support programs for students with Mild Intellectual Disabilities, or Autism. Some of our Special Education programs require placement by the Central Special Education Department (e.g., through IPRC).

Queen Alexandra Middle School's mission is to build a community of learners that embraces compassion and fairness. Our goal is to provide students with an environment that nurtures their academic, emotional, social, and physical growth. Queen "A" is committed to motivating students to set goals and reach their full potential. The main purpose of our safe, diverse and inclusive school is to create a culture of responsible students, who maintain their uniqueness and passion for learning.
