Newton's Grove is a student-focused private school for children from JK to Gr. 12. For over forty years our experienced, caring, and dedicated staff have been delivering a dynamic program that gives our students the tools for success. Our goal is to engage and inspire every student to be a life-long learner and creative thinker. We help students achieve that goal by offering small classes, superior programming in academics, athletics and the arts, and a signature music program. This is all delivered in a new, state-of-the-art-facility bordering on an incredible hundred-acre green space, with a cricket pitch, softball stadiums, tennis courts, soccer fields, playgrounds and trails. Our incredible new home has fully equipped science and computer labs to encourage our students' exploration of STEAM, as well as visual arts, drama and music spaces to showcase our outstanding programming in the arts. Our inquiry-based curriculum encourages students to think independently, to ask questions, and to become problem solvers. Our challenging, personalized approach to learning ensures our students have the skills, confidence and problem-solving ability to succeed in the post-secondary school of their choice. It is our emphasis on all aspects of learning that allows our programs to meet and exceed the Ministry of Education standards.

Our Take: Newton’s Grove School
Newton’s Grove began its life in 1977 as the first private school in Mississauga, known then as Mississauga Private School. It soon moved to Etobicoke, though returned to Mississauga in 2015, moving into its permanent location in 2017. The moves are symptomatic of the school’s growth, based in a growing reputation for its academics coupled with a robust athletic program. Values, too, are a draw, with a dedication to promoting respect and responsibility throughout the curricular areas. The ideal student is one able to thrive in a challenging, vibrant, socially oriented environment.
What does learning at Newton’s Grove School look like now?
Our Learn-From-Home Program was launched at the end of March, and teachers continue to work full-time from home to deliver their classes in real time as scheduled. The goal has been to keep learning consistent, to engage students’ curiosity, and to build the skills and knowledge they will need for success when regular classes resume. All classes continue remotely, including music and Phys. Ed. “For many students, these are their favourite courses,” wrote the administration in a letter home to parents describing the program, “and keeping them in the schedule is paramount to maintaining engagement.”
“The key to our success,” writes Hailey Wilson, an administrator, “has been the dedication and hard work of our teachers. At all levels, our teachers are regularly and actively preparing as they deliver an interactive and dynamic curriculum online. There is an inspiring collaboration and a sense of common purpose in our efforts. There are many challenges ahead, but none that we cannot solve together.”
