Message From the Principal

Welcome to Blyth Academy Downsview Park School for Elite Athletes! We focus on assisting our student-athletes in their academic, athletic and character development, creating a safe, respectful and exciting learning environment for all. With many notable Jr. A, OHL, NCAA, NHL and MLS alumni, our programs are proven to ensure success.

I am a firm believer in a whole school approach and one of our major focuses is to ensure ongoing communication between school and home. As such, we are able to better enhance your child’s educational and athletic experiences. We offer a wide range of extracurricular opportunities, leadership opportunities and clubs that vary each year depending on the interests of our students to engage your children in the student life of the school.

We encourage you to schedule a school tour to see our classrooms and meet our teachers, and we invite your child to spend a day with us to experience a “Day in the Life” of a Blyth student. We are excited to work with your child and show you all of the amazing aspects of our school!

Q. What is one skill you think every student should learn?
One quality Ms. Z thinks every student should develop is resilience. She understands that students experience an incredible amount of growth, both physically and mentally, on a daily basis.

    The difference our teachers make

    If you were to walk into Ms. Zawawi’s classroom at Blyth Academy Downsview Park, you would see a lively and colourful room with tables of students working cooperatively. You would hear a hum of students' voices engaged in active learning and the occasional joke that would diverge the entire class into laughter. In this classroom, you would feel a sense of belonging. Small class sizes allow teachers like Ms. Z to offer a personalized approach to learning and classrooms that create community. Each student has a place and feels heard and seen.
