Public School Number Five is firmly committed to providing our student population with the necessary skills to be successful citizens in today's ever-changing world. Additionally, we strive to ensure that our students are respectful of others and compassionate of their needs.
Day in and day out our teachers present a demanding curriculum where students are challenged to give their personal best and are cognizant of the fact that today's citizens need not only to be proficient in the three "R's" but also to be technology savvy, independent thinkers and effective problem solvers.
Our parents, as partners' in their children's education, closely monitor their children's progress, wholeheartedly support our programs and take advantage of our "Open Door" policy by contacting the teachers, the administration and other school staff whenever needed.
The school-home partnership is a source of pride for our school. Both of us work very closely to make sure that all of our students receive a first rate education and learn and grow in a safe and supportive environment.
