Principal's Message

Welcome/Bienvenue to our Knoxdale Public School website!

Opened in 1968, Knoxdale Public School is home to 670 students from JK to Grade 6. We are a French Immersion site, offering both Early French Immersion (SK to Grade 6) and Middle French Immersion (Grades 4 to 6) as well as a Grades 5/6 Early French Immersion Specialized Gifted class.

At Knoxdale you will find a wonderful community of learning. Staff, students and parents work together towards common goals – academic excellence, social and emotional development, and positive attitudes. Our students are encouraged to become life-long learners and responsible citizens.

It is important for us to share our beliefs with our school community. At Knoxdale PS, we have identified the following as our guiding principles and beliefs:

  • We believe that all students can learn.
  • We believe that well-being is of the utmost importance to set optimal conditions for learning.
  • We believe that if students are struggling, we need to uncover the lagging skill and work on building that skill.
  • We believe that if students can, they will.
  • We believe that students who feel connected to the school are more successful.
  • We believe that learning is reciprocal; we all learn from one another.
  • We believe in community, all of our students, are all of our students.

Our vibrant school is special place to learn and grow. Knoxdale staff are tireless in their efforts to offer wonderful experiences for students both within and beyond the walls of the classroom. With a strong focus on literacy and numeracy, teachers pursue professional development opportunities to deliver the best programs possible for our students. We value our supportive and involved parent community and welcome volunteers! Students are engaged in their learning and are excited to participate in the variety of extra-curricular experiences that are offered at Knoxdale.

We are proud of Knoxdale and are delighted to share it with you!
