General School Description

Eagle Heights Public School is located at 284 Oxford Street West in London.  The school is a Junior Kindergarten to Grade Eight facility that accommodates approximately 940 students.  Eagle Heights is in an urban area of London which is characterized by a variety of residences--from single unit dwellings to multi-level apartments.  Our students represent a diverse cultural background.  We have new Canadians from all over the world and many are second or third generation Canadians.  This gives our school a unique blend of diversity which is enriching for each and every one of us.  Many students at Eagle Heights receive English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction which adds an additional fusion to our academic program.

School Organization

As a kindergarten to grade 8 school, we offer a combination of straight and combined grades.  We operate on a balanced day which means we have two nutritional breaks and three 100 minute instructional blocks.  We call the first break our lunch break as it is ten minutes longer (50 minutes) than our second break; both breaks are split in half with students staying inside to eat for half and going outside for the other half.  We also house a Before and After School Program on our facility that is operated by a private day care provider.

Goals

Our School Goal for the 2018-2019 school year is to develop a greater understanding of math operations and number relationships. To achieve these goals, the Eagle Heights' staff is focusing on the use of tools and representations, and the use of a variety of strategies to solve problems. 

Co-instructional Activities

Eagle Heights offers students a range of sports, clubs and other activities which complement our academic program. Teachers and volunteers combine to make non-instructional times active for our students.

Volunteers at the School

Eagle Heights has an extremely active volunteer network.  Parents, senior citizens, university and college students all provide excellent support to our class-based activities.

Measures of Student Achievement and Success

At Thames Valley, we believe that assessment and evaluation of student achievement are integral parts of the learning process.  Information gathered through assessment and evaluation helps teachers to determine students' strengths and weaknesses in their achievement of the curriculum expectations.  It also serves to guide teachers in adapting curriculum and instructional approaches to students' needs and in assessing the overall effectiveness of programs and classroom practices. A variety of methods are used to gauge student progress including:  teacher observation, classroom tests, and projects and other examples of student work.  For more information on our school's provincial assessment results, visit the Education Quality and Accountability Office.
