About St. Ambrose Catholic School

St. Ambrose Catholic School has a rich tradition upon which the present school continues to build. Established by the Etobicoke Union Board to meet the needs of the new Alderwood community, Sister Verona with her staff of six teachers opened the original school in 1954. The opening day enrollment was 302 students. As South Etobicoke continued to grow throughout the 50's and 60's, our school met the demands of the increased population with two separate expansions (1962 & 1966). During that time, the parents of many current students graduated from St. Ambrose. Today, the school continues the tradition of providing a quality education for its students as they prepare for the challenges of the 21st century.

St. Ambrose Catholic School is located in Alderwood

Around 1920, Alderwood was first planned as an extension of the newly incorporated Town of New Toronto. Alderwood was still part of the original Etobicoke township. Although Alderwood did not undergo significant growth until after the Second World War, many industries moved into the area along Brown's Line during the war years. After the war, increased immigration, particularly from eastern Europe, led to the rapid urbanization of the area which continued until the end of the 1960s. Alderwood is characterized by single family homes, many of which were constructed at the end of the Second World War.
