Halton School Boundaries

  • March 7, 2014

Whether you’ve just moved your family into Halton Region or are planning to relocate here in the future, one of your primary concerns will be to find the appropriate schooling for your children. The Halton District School Board (HDSB) oversees the public school system in the four municipalities of Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville. Sixty thousand public school students attend the Board’s 84 elementary schools and 18 secondary schools.

On the HDSB’s website, you’ll find boundary maps outlining the schools that your children may attend, including elementary, middle and secondary schools. At, you can determine if your child is eligible for school bus transportation.

During the past five years, the HDSB has rolled out the Ministry of Education's full-day every day kindergarten program in all schools. Families should check with their home school regarding whether an extended care program (before and after school care) will be available.

Beginning in September 2014, all schools will follow the Full Day Every Day model where children attend school full-day, five days a week. In addition to providing standard Ontario programming, the HDSB is committed to making programming available to meet the individual needs of each child. Some additional programs include:

  •  International Languages Program for elementary school students whose parents want them to learn a language in addition to English or French. Languages currently offered include Albanian, Arabic, Cantonese, Dutch, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Punjabi, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Urdu.
  • International Baccalaureate (IB) Program is an international, pre-university program for highly-motivated students with outstanding academic records.
  • H.O.P.E.S. is a program to help students who have been previously suspended or expelled, but who wish to continue pursuing their education.
  • Special Education Plans can be created for students with individual learning needs.
