Our School
Crosby Heights P.S. was named after Parker Crosby, who owned "Crosby's Dry Goods" on Yonge Street, near present-day Crosby Avenue, in the 1860s. The wooden structure burned down in 1866, along with neighbouring stores, but Crosby soon rebuilt it using brick and renamed it "The Fire Proof." His son Isaac took over the store in 1869, and residents continued to buy dry goods and groceries at the store for many years to come. The Crosby's lived in the stately "Crosby Hall," 38 Bedford Park Ave., which was built in 1863 and is now designated a historic home.
Our school was the fifth elementary school built in Richmond Hill. It opened its doors to students in September 1958, during Richmond Hill's population boom. However, the official opening ceremony was delayed until February 1959.
Our school motto is "Success has to include me." This motto involves us all: students, parents and teachers; we all need to be involved if Crosby Heights' students are all to achieve success.
Our school mascot is the Cougar. Crosby Heights is a Gifted and a Performance Plus School.
There have been several additions added, and renovations made, to the original building. The last renovation was the extension and renewal of the Library Information Centre in 2002. The outdoors includes both a primary and junior play structure and a large soccer and baseball field. The school has two gyms, four portable classrooms, a music room, art room and a literacy information centre.
