Our Lady of Victory Catholic School, together with home, Church, and community encourages within each child a love of learning and a desire to do one’s best.
At Our Lady of Victory Catholic Elementary School, we pride ourselves in not only providing quality education as prescribed by the Ministry of Education, but quality Catholic education as witnesses to Jesus in our world. Catholic virtues, our Focus on Faith yearly themes and the Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectations are at the core of everything we do.
We are committed to enabling all students to reach their potential, and to succeed. We recognize that every student is unique and each must have opportunities to achieve success according to his or her own interests, abilities, and goals. We have set high academic expectations and standards for our students. With rich learning opportunities and appropriate support, our students have proven their ability to rise to the challenge.
Grade level Focus on Faith themes are embedded in daily teacher-student learning. Our Catholic perspective has always been that student are life-long learners and so it is with this in mind that teachers program for every student based on the Board and the School Improvement plans, daily work results, benchmark, report card and EQAO data. This information, in turn, is used to inform instruction through the construction of appropriate pathways and differentiated instruction within these pathways to match every student’s learning style.
Teachers are always vigilant in ensuring that every child is achieving to potential and advocating for their students in ensuring they receive the required supports for success.
