A rundown of the schools near Kingston and Victoria Park

Courcelette PS

Total number of students: 326

With a relatively small student population and an idyllic location near the Toronto Hunt and the lake shore, it’s a pleasant place to send the kids. Strong parent involvement and excellent SchoolQ scores seal the deal.

Williamson Road Jr. PS

Total number of students: 572

Williamson Road is a larger school and its ratings are a mixed bag, but its French immersion program makes it an east-end standout for parents who value early language acquisition.

Malvern CI

Total number of students: 1127

Malvern consistently posts solid SchoolQ results. The school has extensive athletic programs, including its very own basement pool and swim team.

Beaches Alternative Jr. School

Total number of students: 75

This small alternative school operates out of Kimberley Junior Public School. The educational program emphasizes strong parental involvement.

St. Denis

Total number of students: 297

Above-average SchoolQ results and a location that’s easy walking distance from Queen Street (and kid-favourite ice cream shop Ed’s Real Scoop) as well as Balmy Beach Park make this a fine place to learn and grow.
