Don Mills Middle School

Don Mills Middle School is located in the Don Mills community of Toronto.  Our school serves a mixed residential neighbourhood and has enjoyed success in addressing the diverse needs of our community. The school shares the same campus as Don Mills Collegiate Institute.  This offers many opportunities for cooperative programming and for a smoother transition for the middle level students that choose to attend DMCI.  Both schools offer the CyberARTS multi-disciplinary program, integrating artistic expression and multimedia technologies.  Our motto, “Never Settle for Less than Your Best”, applies to both staff and students.

As part of the Toronto District School Board, we value

  • each and every student;
  • a strong public education system;
  • a partnership of students, schools, family and community;
  • the uniqueness and diversity of our students and our community;
  • the commitment and skills of our staff;
  • equity, innovation, accountability and accessibility; and
  • learning environments that are safe, nurturing, positive and respectful.

What is CyberArts?

CyberARTS is a multi-disciplinary program for grade 6, 7 and 8 students that integrates the Ontario curriculum expectations with art and technology. In the CyberARTS program, students will learn to effectively convey meaning through both traditional visual arts media and digital media as they meet curriculum expectations.

The CyberARTS program fosters the development of artistic and academic skills while encouraging self-esteem, independent work habits and creative/critical thinking. In the program, students are encouraged to explore, analyze, create, present and evaluate their learning on an ongoing basis; a strong emphasis is placed on inquiry learning, self-awareness, critical thinking and presentation skills.

The program is offered at six different schools in Toronto: Don Mills Collegiate Institute, Don Mills Middle School, Northview Heights Secondary School, Charles H. Best, Western Technical Commercial School and Lakeshore Collegiate Institute.
