St. Gabriel School offers students a rich and varied educational experience. Constantly striving to open minds and broaden horizons, traditional academics are supported by supplemental and extra-curricular activities that engage and challenge students. Children will develop self-esteem, self-awareness and self-discipline to become responsible individuals. Teachers, parents and other school personnel share the responsibility of the stdents educational, social and moral growth.
As a designated ICOR school, St. Gabriel is able to guarantee reduced class sizes, allowing students to receive more individualised attention. ICOR funding also supports many of the special extra-curricular and supplemental programs St. Gabriel delivers to students, as well as regular field trips and cultural performances throughout the year.
Technology is integrated and utilized throughout the school. In addition to a modern computer lab, all students have access to Smart Boards. St. Gabriel is also a participant in the EMSB’s iPad deployment Project.
St. Gabriel School is a true community school which cherishes heritage while embracing diversity. Staff, parents, volunteers, and community personnel work together, to guarantee that all children succeed in life and develop to the best of their abilities in a safe, secure, and respectful environment. We believe in offering a variety of activities in order to meet our students’ academic and social needs.
Our vision is to instill an intricate sense of self-motivation through realizing the importance and value of education. We aim to create a general feeling of respect – self-respect, respect of others, and respect of property. We want to work cooperatively and in collaboration with the parents/guardians of our students. We want to encourage an appreciation for books and foster and develop literacy skills. We want to have a greater involvement with the Fine Arts and develop a holistic approach to learning. We hope to help each child develop academically and socially.
We aim to create a sense of self-confidence, self-respect, as well as respect for others and to incorporate each of these values into every aspect of our students’ school life. Children are expected to behave in a manner that will prepare them to become responsible adults. With this concept in mind, students will be expected to show a sense of responsibility and will be held accountable, in a positive manner, for the consequences of their actions. We must insist that education is a value and will be beneficial to them later in life.
