Henry Kelsey Senior Public School is a public middle school established in 1971[3] in the Toronto District School Board located in the Agincourt neighbourhood of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is named after Henry Kelsey, the first European known to have seen the Canadian Prairies, grizzly bears, great buffalo herds, and many Plains First Nations tribes.[4] As of October 2013, there were 506 students are enrolled in the school.[2]

Henry Kelsey has Special Education, E.S.L.,[5] and LEAP programs as well as a language lab to give added support to students who need it. The school offers programs such as drama, art, vocal music and instrumental music.

The two-story building includes over 50 rooms and a large gymnasium that is able to divide into two. When the school was first built, the second-story was an open-concept, but was later renovated to include walls between the classrooms.

Kelsey's feeder schools include Chartland Jr P.S., Percy Williams Jr P.S., Lynnwood Heights Jr P.S., Alexmuir Jr P.S., A.S. Taylor Jr P.S., Brimwood Jr P.S., and Iroquois Jr P.S.. Most students who graduate from the school either go to Agincourt Collegiate Institute or Albert Campbell Collegiate Institute.[6]
