Beechwood Brainery is an elementary private school dedicated to providing comprehensive programming fostering mental wellness, in-depth teaching and social responsibility.
Mental Wellness Supports
Our staff conducts wellness checks daily and provides additional mental health support when needed. We model flexible thinking, problem solving, acceptance and inclusion and foster respectful relationships. The Brainery mindset is a welcoming and safe environment for both students and staff.
Our staff conducts academic assessments using natural environment testing and qualitative and quantitative measurement tools. We utilize these assessments to develop individualized academic plans that cover missed concepts and various learning styles and supports, based on the Ontario Ministry of Education Elementary guidelines. Our curriculum includes core subjects such as: Language, Mathematics, Science & Technology, Social Studies, Visual Arts & French, with limited courses in Physical Education due to building constraints (referrals/recommendations for local recreational sports programs are available!). As an inclusive environment, we welcome all methods of communication and accommodation, we value working in collaboration with parents/guardians and additional service providers to create a synchronous team approach.
The Brainery is dedicated to creating an inclusive environment for everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, color, national origin, age, disability (physical or mental), sexual orientation, gender identity, parental status, marital status, and political affiliation as well as gender expression, mental illness, socioeconomic status or background, neuro(a)typicality, or physical appearance.
We’re united by the Brainery’s values, and we celebrate our unique differences.
We believe that articulating our values and accountabilities to one another reinforces that respect and provides us with clear avenues to correct our culture should it ever stray. We commit to enforce and evolve this code as our team grows.
Every one of the Brainery team is expected to work smart and be considerate of others, and contribute to a collaborative, positive, and healthy environment in which we can all succeed.
- Be supportive of staff and students, both proactively and responsively

The Brainery team is committed to providing a welcoming and safe environment for all. Discrimination and harassment are expressly prohibited. Furthermore, any behavior or language that is unwelcoming—whether or not it rises to the level of harassment—is also strongly discouraged.
Our programs are always growing and expanding, we appreciate your ideas & suggestions.
