New Heights School & Learning Services offer Preschool and School Programs and Specialized Services for children on the Autism Spectrum and/or children with severe sensory integration difficulties; impairments in social interaction; emotional control; interpersonal skills; and flexibility.

Our Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is an elected group of parents that promote the well-being and overall effectiveness of the school community. They also organize school community events and organize fundraising opportunities that, in the past, have provided financial resources and support for the school, thereby enhancing school programs and providing educational and therapy supplies. The PAC executive meets from 11:30am to 12:30pm on the second Friday of each month at the school.
We welcome new members wishing to join the PAC Executive. We are currently seeking a PAC President and Vice President, and executive members to help coordinate events and fundraisers. Take this opportunity to run for the upcoming school year; it is a great opportunity to become involved in the New Heights Community! Our next meeting will be Friday, October 16th from 11:30am-12:30pm. If you have any questions regarding PAC or the elections, or you are interested in running, please contact PAC’s school liaison at [email protected].

As we begin the school year, it seems a good time to remind you of the incredible resource that families have here at New Heights in our Family School Liaison Counsellor, Tracy Tomiak.
Tracy’s role here has been beneficial to many of our families in helping to generalize strategies and tools that are working well for our students in the school environment and bring them into the home environment, as well as working through some of those more challenging transition times in our students’ lives. You may find that some of your child’s IPP objectives emphasize a consistency between school and home for optimal success. A meeting with Tracy is a great step to start this process.
For our students who are 14 years or older, we encourage families to meet with Tracy to discuss plans for transitioning to adulthood as well as vocational planning.
Throughout the year, you may book appointments with Tracy through Alison and Genevieve in the office.Read More »
