Welcome to the M.G.P.S. website!

At Markham Gateway P.S., we are privileged to work with our amazing students and their families in a partnership that focuses on “preparing learners for life in our changing world community.” We strive to create an inclusive, safe and supportive school environment that helps maximize student achievement and well-being.

Markham Gateway P.S. is one of the farthest southeast schools in York Region. Its position certainly matches its name — it really is at the gateway into Markham. The school is a relatively modern two-storey building that first opened its doors in 2001 and is located near the intersection of Markham and Denison Roads. We currently have more than 440 students who use our beautiful play space and soccer field during our outdoor times.

Creating strong connections between students, families and staff is important to us as we work to ensure that every member of our diverse community feels valued, nurtured and encouraged to succeed.  We work together to focus on initiatives that support the York Region District School Board’s goals in the areas of Mathematics, Mental Health and Well-Being and Modern Learning.

At M.G.P.S, we offer:

·            a variety of athletic, arts, academic and community extra-curricular opportunities that enrich our students’ school experiences

·            the EarlyON Centre, where children up to six years old can come with a caregiver to prepare them for school and families are encouraged to be part of their child's early learning

·            a daily healthy snacks program, where students receive different healthy snacks from three of the basic food groups (a dairy, a grain and a fruit or vegetable) every morning, and a daily milk program, where students receive a carton of white milk each day

We look forward to working with all members of our school community as we share the important task of educating our students and future leaders. Please do not hesitate to contact the school to ask questions or share any insights you may have regarding your child's education and school experience. We welcome the opportunity to connect with you!

Your partners in education,


Mr. P. Battler
