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.

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 HaltonBus.ca, 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,
- 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.
