totally irrelevant right now but from wikipedia
The local elementary school, Thorncliffe Park Public School, was largely overpopulated when in 1998 it had a population of 1,500. The following year students had to be sent to the nearby Don Mills school due to a lack of space. Thorncliffe Public School has now been reconstructed and is now Canada's largest elementary school and was reopened in 2003. Both middle school and high schools are all within a short walk of pupils' residences, while buses take pupils to (Catholic) separate schools. In 1998, the local middle school, Valley Park Middle School, stood at around 1,500 students. As of 2004, the school has in excess of 3,000 students, and has been expanded with a new wing and over 20 portable classrooms mounted in the school yard.

do you know what immigrant communities in particular?
like, are there large segments of specific immigrant groups?

also, there are supposedly some high rise buildings which surround the school...are they fairly low income apartments?

whatever the newest/latest wave of immigrants are, they end up in thorncliffe as the rent is fairly low.

I went to Thorncliffe Park.... it is 90 % East Indian people that live it the area... sometimes called "Little India" and it is a low-income area

But it is pretty safe and there's some good eats nearby...
