LETTERS FROM THE FACULTY

The faculty and administrative staff at East Hill School would like to extend their welcome to current parents, new parents and website visitors.

Dear East Hill Families; current, new and website visitors,

Welcome to the East Hill School Website.

.......STEPPING IT UP.......IS THE EAST HILL WAY!

I am Libby Amato, principal at East Hill School.  It is my belief that children deserve a quality education and have access to all learning opportunities. At East Hill, we have high expectations in the classroom and around our school/community.  We encourage students to strive to be the best that they can be!!

This is my 17th year as an administrator for the EMSB.  I am proud to say that I live in the community, raised my family in the community and my children who now are very successful adults attended school at East Hill and taught in the community. East Hill was indeed the school I taught at. I am proud to say that I have come full circle, back to the place that I loved to teach in a new role. A role that gives me the possibility of taking this learning community to higher standards. To continue and strive to provide the excellent education they deserve.       

I am proud to be the Principal of East Hill School.

At East Hill School we strive to maintain a happy and safe and learning environment for our students, one that is conducive to learning and academic success. Our success with our students is achieved only through the collaboration and hard work of the entire school community. 

Our team of teachers and professionals collaborate to guide and support our students through a rich learning environment where all students feel safe to explore, discover and grow to become independent thinkers and learners.

Parents, school staff and community at East Hill School aim to turn dreams into achievements and prepare East Hill students for life-long learning. Together we form a strong partnership to ensure all East Hill students receive an exceptional education. With Governing Board and Home and School, we will work together to help our students face the challenges and celebrate the accomplishments. I encourage you to participate in school activities and special occasions as well as volunteer in your child's class as your schedule allows.

We encourage respect, critical thinking, tolerance, and care within a safe and nurturing environment. We are committed to developing the learner's personal, social, and academic capacities. East Hill provides a global open-minded and inquiry-based curriculum with ongoing reflection and assessment that links active classroom experiences to personal, community and global issues.

The French Immersion Program as well as an Integrated Italian Program are programs offered at East Hill.  We also offer our students two music periods per week. In addition, the students have weekly sessions in our computer lab where they learn how to work with various software and new technological innovations. Furthermore, each class is equipped with a SMARTBOARD ready to support the ongoing teaching in class. 

To keep you informed about all the good things happening at East Hill, I encourage you to frequently visit and explore our website.

Come discover a team of teachers, specialists, parents, and students that are proud to be part of a vibrant learning community that fosters personal academic success and self-esteem.

I look forward to working with you this school year and many to come.

With warm regards,

Libby Amato

Dear Parents, 

If your searches and inquiries regarding schooling for your child have led you here, welcome! You are in the right place. By choosing East Hill School, you are choosing an institution that is continuously evolving in order to meet the needs of its students. 

At East Hill School, we strive to foster well-rounded students who, throughout their time with us, grow academically and socially. By choosing East Hill, you are entrusting your child to a vast community of devoted professionals who value a challenging academic curriculum and a thriving school culture. Students are encouraged to take ownership of their learning in an environment that prioritizes safety and happiness.  

I believe that it is essential to provide students with opportunities to connect concepts learned in class to the real world. When students’ learning mirrors their reality, knowledge is assimilated more easily and more effectively. East Hill continuously develops existing programs and implements new, hands-on initiatives. This fosters responsible, caring and productive members of society, which ties in perfectly with our school motto: ‘Learning for our Future’.

Furthermore, I also believe that student success is guaranteed when there is a strong relationship between parents, staff, students and community representatives. Your child’s experience can only be strengthened through ongoing communication. 

I consider myself extremely lucky to have been appointed as Vice-Principal at East Hill School. I look forward to meeting and working with all of you. Please do not hesitate to contact  us with any comments, questions or concerns. Together, we can make our 21st year, and the years to come, the best yet! 

Jessica Monti

Vice-principal
