On our fortieth anniversary, we moved into our new permanent home at 6850 Goreway Drive. Our students are now housed in a state-of-the-art building designed to welcome and inspire young minds. Highlights of this structure are the fully-equipped science and computer rooms, the Learning Commons, and the music room and studio. Phase Two will be a gymnasium and Athletic Center custom-built to offer elite programming and exceptional opportunities for physical education, training and athletics. Together, our campus offers students opportunities to learn, to strive, and to achieve.
Our school is designed to engage students, welcoming them into a bright, modern, inspiring space. The central atrium will have living trees and student gardens, ones they can plant, care for, and even harvest. Every classroom has robust fibre-optic connections, available wi-fi, and the infrastructure to support innovative teaching. Our fully equipped science labs, computer labs, and learning commons encourage our students’ exploration of STEM. The visual arts room, the drama room and stage, the music room which houses our signature instrumental music program, all showcase our outstanding programming in arts. This is a place where students can grow.
Our campus is wrapped around by Paul Coffey Park, giving us access to green space unrivalled in the GTA. Our students enjoy over 100 acres of fields, playgrounds, and trails, with softball stadiums, soccer pitches, tennis courts and even a cricket pitch right in our backyard. Students are supervised as they relax and play in the park throughout the seasons. Field studies, nature hikes, fitness runs, and a wide range of athletic activities are all part of our outdoor programming, with the capacity to do even more. This natural, healthy environment is what Newton’s Grove students experience every day.
