Welcome to the Claude Watson School for the Arts Website

Claude Watson School for the Arts offers an enriched arts education for students in grades four through eight who reside within Toronto.

Our students divide their day between regular academic classes and an exceptional arts program. In this environment, the arts become a language of experiences in a program that develops the creative artistic potential of students.

The goals of this school are to enrich and accelerate aesthetic development, to stimulate creativity and original thinking, to nurture the visual, aural and kinetic senses and to create an enduring respect and passion for learning within a climate of artistic and academic excellence.

The school program maximizes the growth of the student by exposure to highly qualified teachers, and artists.

Enrichment is offered by means of extensive co-curricular opportunities in athletics, academics and the arts.

Both the Arts and academic programs satisfy all the requirements of The Ontario Curriculum. The students learn creativity thorough artistic and academic education. There are ten classes, two per grade level. Academic and arts progress is monitored regularly through a variety of ongoing assessment and evaluations strategies. Students at Claude Watson School for the Arts participate in all Ministry wide testing programs and students score above the system average.

I hope that you enjoy your tour through CWSA website and find it both informative and enjoyable. Should you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me directly at the school.
