Discover Danilack

The Danilack Middle School, at the Hurwich Education Centre, is a dynamic and exciting place of learning catering to the needs of adolescents. Our students are challenged with a rigorous dual curriculum. They are supported as they develop their independence, inspired as they further develop their Jewish identity, and celebrated as they become accomplished and active young Jewish adults.
Danilack is the only stand-alone Jewish middle school in the GTA. Our outstanding high school preparatory program graduates independent thinkers, engaged Jewish student leaders, and accomplished scholars who are ready to excel wherever their journey takes them.

Student Life

The Danilack Middle School has a high-school-like atmosphere with different classes and teachers for different subjects.

When we say our school has something for everyone, we mean it! There are over 25 staff-supervised clubs, from Glee and Band to the D’var Danilack Newsletter and the Debate team. Student leadership opportunities are plentiful and include Student Council, Student Ambassadors, and Athletic Council.

The Jewish concepts of Tikkun Olam and Derech Eretz are integrated into much of the School’s activities, both at school and in our community.

Our athletics program encourages as many students as possible to participate in a variety of sports. Our competitive teams include soccer, ultimate Frisbee, ice hockey, basketball, cross country, softball, and volleyball. Additionally, lunchtime intramural sports are open to all students, as well as open gym time and our charity basketball tournament, Hurwich Hoops.

Grade-wide trips are a highlight in every grade and include a Grade 6, 7, & 8 trip to Snow Valley; Grade 6 trip to Camp Robin Hood; Grade 7 Shabbaton at Camp George; and Grade 8 graduation trip.
