The York School is always looking for innovative and dynamic staff to join our team.

The York School is an in-demand destination for educators with international experience, a background in the IB programme, a collaborative approach to teaching and learning, and an ongoing commitment to professional development. 

Like our students, teachers at The York School are inquiring, knowledgeable, caring and engaged citizens of the world. Leaders in their field, they are open to change and committed to improving lives through education.

From the adapted office buildings we occupy in the heart of the city to our experiential learning model that crosses borders, our faculty who constantly push the limits of what’s possible, and the capable and confident learners we graduate—each and every aspect of The York School is unique. Innovation is our tradition. 
Ours is a stable environment of established professionals with little turnover in staffing from year to year. The York School is a full participant in the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan for eligible faculty and we offer a generous matching plan for our employees.

Oh, the Places You'll Go

Our programmes are structured so that students must step beyond the four walls of the classroom but we also give the individual student a wide range of choice in shaping their out-of-the-classroom experiences. In this way, students not only discover what the world is all about but are able to find their unique place within it.

Our students and staff can find themselves just about anywhere - on a kayak in Squamish, B.C., in a debating tournament in Hong Kong, at a Model United Nations event in Budapest, in a school for impoverished children in southern India, or leading an assembly in our very own York School Coliseum.
