Principal’s Message

I am proud to welcome you to Seneca Hill Private School!

This school has been in my family for over 30 years and I am proud and excited to continue our tradition of excellence into the future. Over the years our school has developed a reputation for strong academics, a range of athletics and a comprehensive extracurricular program. Inspiring our students to think creatively, critically and analytically, our school stimulates growth and provides a healthy balance between academics and personal well-being.

As Principal, I am thrilled to carry on the legacy of my grandmother and take our school to the next level. I believe in a school culture that supports students in becoming independent and lifelong learners. We understand that as educators, we can’t just teach the standard material. We must go above and beyond the classroom to give students the opportunity to demonstrate, exercise, perform and build skills and experiences in their lives that cultivate success.

We welcome all children and seek to understand all aspects of their abilities and learning styles. We are pleased to offer your child a personalized educational experience. We instill confidence in our students to act with purpose and strive for excellence. We foster a bully-free environment and teach conflict resolution, so that our students become strong collaborators who work towards solving complex problems.

My promise to each of our students and families is open communication. The success of your child is of utmost importance to us. I look forward to helping your child unlock their true potential.

Founder’s Message

This school was built on the love and esteem that I had for children and the field of education.

As an immigrant to Canada, it was my dream to extend the ideals within a family to a school environment. At Seneca Hill we pride ourselves in being a place where children not only receive an exceptional education but are treated like family with love and respect.

When I arrived in Canada, I began my career with the Toronto District School Board in the role as an educator. I soon understood our communities had a need for a stronger relationship between a school and families. I envisioned a comprehensive whole child development and education structure. Not only would we provide academic rigour but also discipline, manners, respect for friends, family, and community. Skills that would help the child develop academically while building values, social awareness and empathy for the community.

I also wanted to support parents by offering the convenience of before and after school programs and hot lunches.

In 1988, this vision led me to establish Seneca Hill Private School. My vision and dreams for children has been both fulfilling and rewarding, I have seen many of my students go on to study at top universities, obtain successful careers and am delighted to watch them raise their own families while remembering the foundations that I instilled in them many years ago.

My goal for all children is for them to become the best version of themselves through love, discipline and a quest for knowledge.

Once again, I welcome you and your family to Seneca Hill Private School!
