St. Edith Stein Catholic Elementary School is located in the north west area of the City of Mississauga. We belong to the Mississauga North Family of Schools of the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board. The student population, approximately 245 students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8, come from a wide range of social and ethnic backgrounds reflecting the ever-increasing diversity of cultures found within Mississauga. The school opened it's doors in September 1992 as Blessed Edith Stein and celebrated it's official blessing on May 30, 1993. Shortly after the canonization of Edith Stein, the school was renamed to St. Edith Stein.
St. Edith Stein School is committed to a Catholic education as outlined in the Mission Statement of the Dufferin-Peel Catholic Disctrict School Board. St. Edith Stein is a caring school and is located within a community environment that stresses tolerance and acceptance of others, commitment to our Catholic faith and high academic standards. We provide a learning environment where models of Gospel values and Catholic doctirnes, teachings and beliefs are an integral part of the daily life of our school. The school motto: "to have a friend, you must be a friend", was chosen to reflect the importance of sharing, caring, and compassion for one another as Jesus taught us. All activities at St. Edith Stein School - academic and pastoral work, extra-curricular and intra-curricular, prayer and worship, administration and management - help prepare our students for their lives as Catholics in the community.
