About Us

Welcome to University Heights Public School

University Heights is a kindergarten to grade 8 public school in London, Ontario.  We are part of the Thames Valley District School Board.  Our mascot is a proud and mighty unicorn!

University Heights has approximately 350 students that come from a wide range of ethnic, religious and global backgrounds.  Due to our proximity to the University of Western Ontario, we have many families who are studying or teaching at the university.

Our school day begins at 9:00 and ends at 3:30.  In addition to experiencing the Ontario curriculum, our students have the opportunity to be a part of clubs, sports teams and special committees that are organized throughout the school.

Our school improvement goal is focused on mathematics; specifically, we are learning how to support and instruct our students to work with math tools, models and problems to develop their mathematical thinking and reasoning skills.  To learn more about math education and the important of engaging our students to see themselves as math problem solvers, we highly recommend that you watch this video by Jo Boaler.

In addition to student learning and student centred extracurricular opportunities, University Heights has a very active School Council and Home and School Association.  Meetings are held monthly and all parents are invited to attend.  These parent groups help support the school through fundraising and engaging in discussions about our goals and directions as a school.  Our parent groups also organize our hot lunch program and a variety of community activities.  Learn more by visiting their Facebook  page.

Please feel free to call or email us if you have any questions.
