About Us

Grove School is located in the Durham District School Board in Ontario and serves students in Kindergarten through Grade 12.


Grove School provides a school name and structure for Durham District School Board teachers to provide education programs for clients of government approved Care, Treatment, Custody and Correctional facilities within this jurisdiction.

Grove School serves the educational needs of students who are unable to attend a community school because of placement in Care, Treatment, Custody or Correctional facility. Its primary purpose is to provide students with effective individual instruction that leads to the re-integration of students into community schools, post-secondary institutions or employment.
