Donview Middle Health and Wellness Academy was featured on CBC's 5:00 News on Wednesday February 13th as a response to the student survey that was produced by the TDSB. This study found that mental wellness is a significant issue for TDSB students. Along with the TDSB's Mental Health Strategy, at Donview one of our Five Pillars is Mental Wellness, and we are using Yoga (among other things) to help students be successful in this area.
Welcome to Donview Online, the web home of Donview Middle Health and Wellness Academy. This website has been designed for students, parents, caregivers, staff, and anyone else who is interested in all the things happening at our school. We hope you find the site easy to navigate, and the information up-to-date.
Enjoy your stay!
