Our students are a diverse group from a diverse catchment area. We do all we can to encourage the development of each child.

Constructed in the early 1960's, Ecole Porter Street School is a large, single-level facility on spacious, open property. The school has a grass field and a large all-weather field that is lit at night and is used by community athletic groups. The school also has two large playground areas with new play structures.
