Welcome to York

Ever since we first opened our doors in 1965, The York School has been a place where learning extends beyond the classroom walls into our city, our country and our world.
A place where students have all the tools and opportunities that technology and our two state-of-the-art, purposefully-designed,  urban campuses located in the heart of Toronto’s dynamic city centre can provide at their fingertips.

A place challenging enough for our students to realize their fullest potential and supportive enough for them to discover who they want to be.

As you explore the sections of our website, I invite you to learn more about what makes The York School one of Canada’s leading independent IB schools:
  • A Modern school for a Global world: Today, the interconnectedness of our world has taken centre stage. Global citizenship - a principle we have always embraced as a fully-accredited IB world school - has become undeniably important. Our staff, many of whom have international teaching experience, are world-class educators, using professional development and technology to anticipate and evolve with a changing educational landscape.The International Baccalaureate curriculum is a passport for our students to further their post-secondary education at the world’s leading universities. 
  • Experiential Learning: Our students learn in an enlightened and innovative setting that reflects and embraces the social and cultural realities of today’s world. We offer a wide range of experiential learning opportunities for students to apply their learning outside of the classroom and create transformative experiences that allow them to stretch their thinking, explore new things and make a difference themselves in the lives of others. 
  • Inclusive and Welcoming: Our culture is what sets the York School apart. Our school is a dynamic JK-12 gender inclusive learning environment with a mission that welcomes and promotes diversity and inclusion. Our mix of Canadian and international families allows our students and parents to make meaningful connections and incorporate different perspectives into their daily interactions. The York School offers a wide array of co-curricular and community initiatives to round-out the student experience, and bring us together as a community. 
We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you into our community.
