school profiles

Please note | we’re building a new interactive mapping tool to make it easier to find schools using a familiar web interface, and will no longer be using the maps on this page. Because of that, these interactive maps show the boundaries for the 2013-14 school year, and may not be accurate for the 2014-15 school year. For current information, please refer to the “find a school by address” tool to find your designated school, see the list of schools by residential district and grade, or visit the school profile of the school you’re interested in to see the walk zone map in PDF. Thanks for your understanding, and we look forward to sharing our new site with you soon.

About the School

Terry Fox School was opened in 1995 as the first multi-track year-round junior high school in Canada. Terry Fox School is on a modified school calendar that more closely resembles our elementary feeder schools. The school prides itself on its extensive technology infrastructure, its commitment to integrated learning, its excellent extracurricular and intramural program, and its bright, open classrooms.

Terry Fox School is named in honour of Terry Fox, the young Canadian whose valiant run for cancer research continues to inspire all Canadians.
