About Beckett Farm PS

In 1917, the Beckett family moved onto the farmland that is the entire size of the new development of homes within the Beckett Farm PS catchment area. The naming of this school pays tribute to the family that used to work the farm. The original farm house is being retained on its original site just down the street from the school.

Beckett Farm PS is located in Berczy

The Berczy neighbourhood is in north central Markham, and is named for William Berczy, Markham's founder. It is bounded to the north by Major Mackenzie Drive, to the east by McCowan Road, to the south by 16th Avenue, and to the west by Kennedy Road. A residential neighbourhood, Berczy follows a carefully planned urban design scheme that puts an emphasis on open space, protection of environmentally sensitive areas, and conservation of woodlots. It has mainly single detached homes as well as row housing and townhomes, some with garage alleyways behind the homes. A commercial area lies at the intersection of McCowan and Bur Oak Ave.
