About The Grove

The Grove Community School is a public alternative school within the Toronto District School Board offering arts-infused, holistic learning, built on the core values of social justice, environmentalism, and community activism.

The school originated in conversations at Dufferin Grove Park, and several parents and community worked tirelessly to bring it into being.
