Academics

The York School curriculum reflects our commitment to experiential learning. Our mission is to inspire students to become inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who are engaged citizens of the world.

With more than 45 years of experience, we have developed an innovative teaching culture that prepares our students to succeed at university and beyond.
 
The York School offers an education marked by individual attention, small class sizes and a climate of collaboration and excellence. Our teachers encourage students to ask questions and to act within their community, promoting greater self-discovery along with an awareness of the world around them.
 
We are proud to be the first school in Canada to be accredited to offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme from Junior Kindergarten through Grade 12.
 
As an IB World School, we cultivate skills which we believe are the cornerstones of academic excellence, such as creative thinking, research and time management. Our progressive approach to technology includes laptops for all students, SmartBoards, online collaboration tools, the latest learning software and a wireless environment.
 
The result? Our students excel and become active, compassionate and lifelong learners.
