"Harbord has been a diverse multicultural school for many years. From the 1920s to the 1950s, about 90% of the student body was Jewish and many prominent Jewish Canadians attended Harbord." How, exactly, is having 90% of the population made up of a single identifiable group "diverse"?

"Today, the student body largely consists of, but is not limited to, students of Chinese and Portuguese descent, which is representative of the surrounding neighbourhoods." Again, what exactly is so diverse if the population "largely consists" of only two identifiable groups?

I'm also skeptical of the school's attempt to "promote diversity" by providing Cantonese, Mandarin, and Portuguese classes to the students "largely...of Chinese and Portuguese descent". That's money well spent!

Just some outdated info about the robotics club. I also added a new section for the Green Club--Andrew4Life 23:21, 25 October 2006
I didnt write the Robotics Club part anyways >_> If I remember correctly, it had its own article under "Tiger Techs" and all I did was merge them. GooTuM 02:27, 27 October 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Who did that major edit to everything? It looks like someone tried to depersonalize the page. --Andrew4Life 01:02, 31 October 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You know, the school's been around for over a century. The current students hardly provide much of a context in understanding the school. When you get that detailed it looks like a joke. Broaden it up a little so it is more accessible to people who are not current attendees.

Alton and Andrew are funny people. LordofPens 23:31, 9 April 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Article expansion[edit]

We should add a list of teams (not just clubs) Harbord has to offer. (ex. the wrestling team) LordofPens 00:39, 10 April 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Okay, we should have a more complete list of teams. LordofPens 00:44, 10 April 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

true true. But still, this page contains numerous amouts of information which is very impressive.

Harbord is used as the exterior of Eastview High School in Team Epic, (

Who was the Harbord after whom Harbord Street was named? This should be mentioned in the article. Deipnosophista (talk) 10:35, 3 March 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
