Welcome to the Junior School, designed to give your child a holistic and enriching educational experience. Our school facilities and prime location on Yonge Street enhance all our academic and co-curricular programmes. The building’s innovative and contemporary design includes spacious classrooms, a gymnasium, a beautiful dining hall overlooking our playground, specialized areas for music, art, physical education and French; gathering areas where you will find students reading or working in small groups on collaborative projects and an abundance of natural light.

The York School was the first school in Canada and the fourth in North America to be accredited to offer the full International Baccalaureate (IB) programme from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12. Students in the Junior School follow the Primary Years Programme (PYP), which gives your child an opportunity to become an informed citizen and a student who cares about and is connected to the world around them.

As a co-ed school, children learn from an early age how to interact with their peers as they would beyond the school walls. As an IB school, natural inquiry is nurtured from an early age which allows students to develop the critical thinking and problem-solving skills necessary for the 21st century. The use of cutting-edge technology enhances our curriculum and allows students to further develop skills they will require to navigate the real world.

The environment at the Junior School is collaborative in all aspects and has a strong community feel. Students are immersed in a respectful and mindful environment with many activities to support the development of these traits as we strive to nurture and develop the whole child. Our strong co-curricular programme of diverse activities further supports this goal. The athletics programme focuses on developing skills and a passion for a healthy and balanced lifestyle while also paving the way for participation in competitive, fun, engaging and teambuilding athletics.

Our diverse faculty is committed to providing your child with one-on-one attention and we are strongly dedicated to ensuring that each child has the opportunity to excel.
