Newton’s Grove School celebrates the individual; we create academic programs to help each student achieve personal excellence. Our curriculum is tailored to students’ needs and exceeds Ministry of Education standards.
The Newton’s Grove three Rs:
Reason We challenge our students; responding to this challenge helps them fulfill their potential. You’ll see the results in your child’s positive self-image and confident outlook. Our students learn to think for themselves and are encouraged to become independent, life-long learners whose problem solving skills foster originality and creativity.
Respect The way we treat each other, our school, the property and the uniform reflects the value we place on education. As a caring community of teachers, parents and students, we strive to demonstrate fairness, courtesy and unselfishness. Every member of our community is valued and supported.
Responsibility It is our responsibility to educate the whole person and we believe that a sense of responsibility is one of the greatest legacies of an excellent education. Our students are given personal responsibility for homework, for studying, for preparing assignments and encouraged to actively take responsibility in their community.
At Newton’s Grove School, we grow students through a culture of reason, respect and responsibility. We know our philosophy is working – because we can hear it in the way our students talk about their school.
“Without [Newton’s Grove School] shaping my personality, I don’t think I would have gotten the success I do have. I don’t think I would have gotten to where I am today.”

“Everything we do somehow benefits us. There are so many different components and when you put it all together, [Newton’s Grove School] makes the ideal school.”

In 2017, Newton's Grove School will be relocating to a new home, nestled adjacent to over 100 acres of Paul Coffey Park on the border of Mississauga and Etobicoke. For 40 years, Newton's Grove has stressed excellence in academics, the arts, and athletics. Already known for its student-focussed approach, high academic standard, and signature music program, the school will now be poised to further develop its thriving athletics program. We have established a reputation based on first-rate teaching, outstanding university placement, and an exceptional arts curriculum. Our new site will build on all of this, combined with a state-of-the-art athletics centre, tennis courts, playing fields & unmatched greenspace.
This spectacular location offers all that we could have hoped for, and more! The four acre site backs on to over one hundred acres of Paul Coffey Park, offering baseball diamonds, soccer fields, tennis courts, basketball courts, a cricket pitch, all surrounded by playing fields and beautiful parkland. With extensive greenspace to the north and west, this locale has considerable room for new facilities, including a pool, a covered soccer field and tennis courts. With a long list of athletic association memberships, and a history of developing student athletes and encouraging active involvement in sports and healthy living, Newton's Grove is excited to bring this high level of athletic programming to the community. The large, modern building already on the property is an ideal blank canvas, perfect for remodelling into our dream school. With this land, this locale and this facility, we can truly say, “Kids grow here!”
Located only six minutes from our current location, the site is easily accessible from the 427 and from highway 27. Our new home on Goreway Drive is the ideal environment for young people to learn, to participate, and to grow.
New home location: 6850 Goreway Drive
Together with SMASH Athletics, we are building an incredible learning environment, because our kids really do deserve the best!

Our teachers are the connection between the curriculum we’ve developed and the love of learning fostered in your child. They are the difference makers.

They also bring a passion for sharing and nurturing growth. Our teachers ensure that students will always remember what they are taught by making Newton’s Grove School an unforgettable experience.
“Building a culture of excellence is the role of the school’s Director, Gabrielle Bush. For students to thrive, they must be fully engaged, and the team at Newton’s Grove understand this. For over 35 years, Newton’s Grove has established a reputation based on first-rate teaching, outstanding university placement, and excellence in academics, the arts and athletics. Our new campus will build on all of this, providing our students an ideal environment in which to learn, to participate, and to grow.”
“Dr. Amr Hassanein is an entrepreneur and a scholar with extensive experience in corporate aairs. He holds a PhD in Engineering and an MS in Finance from the University of Illinois. He has experience in local and international development and is a professor at the American University in Cairo. He is one of the founding members of SMASH Canada, and it was his vision that brought SMASH Athletics to Newton’s Grove. Dr. Hassanein’s expertise will help expand and grow our programs to ensure that all of our students have every possible opportunity.”
“Jas Mathura comes to Newton’s Grove with an extensive financial background and experience in private schools and charitable organizations. As part of the financial team, Mrs. Mathura is responsible for the day to day financial management of the school, and she is working closely with the development team to ensure our new campus has a solid financial foundation.”
“Brenda Dix’s responsibility is to ensure that our youngest students are grounded in the fundamentals and fully prepared for the demands of the secondary program. Mrs. Dix sees our new facilities as an opportunity to further our commitment to nurturing the whole child, by providing the latest technology, state-of-the-art classrooms and unmatched green space. Our new home is a place where children can grow.”

“Nick Zero has always worn two hats, as the Head of Student Services and as the Athletic Director. He will find both of these roles expanding as he integrates new programs through our partnership with SMASH. With the transition into state-of-the-art athletic facilities, Mr. Zero’s vision for the future is to offer elite levels of coaching, while ensuring sports remain part of the fabric of our school for students of all ages and abilities. At the same time, he is committed to meeting student needs, informing, guiding, and assisting our students in their individual roads to success.”
“Every student wants to succeed. We, as teachers, are entrusted with the important job of helping each and every child to do so. My goal as an educator is to create an environment conducive to learning, exploring and discovering. I want the students I teach to develop a love of knowledge, to be curious about the world around them, and to grow both intellectually and as a contributing member of a society. Our goal is to spark an excitement for learning – in all areas of the curriculum.”
“No two children are the same; nor do they develop in the same way, so it is important to find out which teaching strategy works best for each child. This way, they can excel and have a positive feeling about themselves. When students feel good about themselves and their ability, they have a good attitude towards academics in general and they will give back to their academic environment at an early age. I strive to build good character and grow positive contributors to our community.”
“Mr. Alonso is very excited about our new music room, one in which superior acoustics will allow students to develop a more complex and nuanced sound. With the addition of sound-proof training rooms, students will have opportunities to foster the qualities that are the legacy of a superior program: self-discipline, leadership, and a life-long love of music. He sees our students reaching for new heights as he continues to challenge them, exposing them to the power and joy of music.”
“Mrs. Mehra sees the science department offering collaborative experiences for students to learn in both traditional and high-tech environments. The two large-scale science labs are designed to engage and inspire students. These modern spaces will incorporate next generation technology, real-time digital demonstrations, and advanced laboratory equipment. Students will thrive in a challenging program which provides hands-on learning and opportunities to go beyond the Ontario curriculum in courses such as AP Biology and AP Chemistry.”
“Looking ahead in drama, our new multi-purpose performance space will allow us to expand the number and quality of performance opportunities for our students. Lighting and sound equipment on site, extensive costume and prop storage, and a fresh new studio space attached to the auditorium stage will allow us to showcase our student performers. Mrs. Hewitt envisions improv troupes, lunch time theatre, and presentations of student written and directed pieces in a venue accessible to the whole community.”
“A key member of the Newton’s Grove administration team, Beatrice Chachel looks after the needs of all members of our school community. From little scrapes to big questions, Mrs. Chachel handles everything. She assists with the admissions process and new student orientation, making sure that all of our students and their families feel welcome and valued at Newton’s Grove. Mrs. Chachel will continue to foster a welcoming and caring community in our new campus.”
