About Us

Victoria Public School is a historic building with up-to-date facilities located on Wharncliffe Road at Askin Street, two blocks west of the Old South Community. We offer programs for students from junior kindergarten through grade eight.

The history of our school stretches back over more than a century. Our school was originally opened about 130 years ago in one room rented from a brewery on Wharncliffe near Cove Road, and was the first school opened in south London. The first school named Victoria was built in 1877. Within ten years, expansion occurred and a building nicknamed the Green School was opened on the present site to house primary grades, including the first kindergarten in this part of Ontario. The building as we know it today was dedicated on March 31, 1928.

Measures of Student Achievement and Success:

At Thames Valley, we believe that assessment and evaluation of student achievement are integral parts of the learning process.  Information gathered through assessment and evaluation helps teachers to determine students' strengths and weaknesses in their achievement of the curriculum expectations.  It also serves to guide teachers in adapting curriculum and instructional approaches to students' needs and in assessing the overall effectiveness of programs and classroom practices.  A variety of methods are used to gauge student progress including: teacher observation, classroom tests, projects and other examples of student work. For more information on our school's provincial assessment results, visit the Education Quality and Accountability Office.

Victoria Public School's Superintendent of Education is Marion Moynihan. She can be reached by email at m.moynihan@tvdsb.ca
