About Our School

Hilson Avenue Public school has provided education for students in our community for over 100 years. In the summer of 1997, the original school building was demolished and a new facility opened on June 10, 1999.

Hilson Avenue P.S. is a child-centered learning environment where academic progress, social development and a positive attitude towards self and others are cornerstones of our philosophy. Our community of learners practice teamwork, leadership and risk-taking as they prepare for the future.

We are fortunate to be able to offer community access to a “Parenting and Family Literacy Centre”. It is located on the main floor in room 150. Open 20 hours per week, it offers parents and children from 0 to 6 years old the opportunity to learn and play together under the guidance of a facilitator.
