Newtonbrook Secondary School opened in 1964 by the then North York Board of Education to provide a closer school for the area with 610 pupils. It was officially opened in Winter 1965 by Newtonbrook-born and then Prime Minister of Canada Lester B. Pearson.
The building's design resembled Sir Sanford Fleming Academy but alterations occurred years later.
It viewed to be one of the more sports-oriented high schools in the Toronto District School Board. Some of the athletics offered are basketball, soccer, track, ultimate, baseball, swimming, softball, cheerleading, dance team, water polo, cross country running, badminton, rugby, volleyball and wrestling.

Sports can help people of all ages maintain and improve the health of their heart, lungs and blood vessels. Physical activity can significantly reduce the risk of coronary disease and stroke. According to the British Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology, approximately 40 percent of deaths related to coronary heart disease are related to inadequate physical activity, obesity, stress and raised blood pressure. Sports can help with all of these physical issues, decreasing the risk of coronary disease by about 50 percent.

Newtonbrook Secondary School cares about you/your child talents, the motto is "To each according to his/her own talent".


Figure out what you need to learn in order to take your natural talent to the next level. What are the techniques required that will enable you to improve your performance? Do some research about your craft. Are there other variations or forms? What are the studies that have been done regarding your discipline? Let’s say you’re a talented dancer. Find out the basics. What are the genres? Evaluate your skills. What category do you qualify for? What is your dance style called? What other forms would you like to learn? This is how you create common ground for being able to collaborate with others, and it’s also a way to protect your abilities. I know very talented singers with the most beautiful voices who end up with a sore throat or lose their voice after every performance because they haven’t invested time in learning the ‘right way’ to sing. So taking time to know and master techniques are of utmost importance. Also, keep in mind that this is not a one-time thing. The more you learn, the more you’ll find room for improvement, but only when you know the possibilities will you reach for more. To find out what you should be able to do.
