When possible, I make time to greet the students as they pour in off Yonge Street in the morning, chatting with friends and turning their minds to the day ahead. It seems as if the possibilities of the city itself – and even the world at large – somehow flow into the school with them. You can actually feel the energy build.
Our 700+ students from JK to Grade 12 are, in many ways, perfect examples of both the world beyond our walls and the International Baccalaureate programme inside. They are diverse and contemporary like the city that makes our midtown location so unique. They are resilient and expansive like the Canadian landscape they explore through our extensive outdoor education offerings. And they are complex and multi-faceted like the nations they represent, the global community they are preparing to join, and the renowned universities they will attend.
For over 50 years, this community has worked together to build a distinctive learning environment to realize our mission. In this setting, students thrive, teachers inspire and parents advance the cause. From the strategic thinking of our current Board members to the inquiring questions of our youngest students, our tradition of academic excellence and global understanding continues. Graduates of The York School are knowledgeable and caring citizens of the world.
On behalf of our entire community, I welcome you to our website. I hope you enjoy this first glance at the vast array of academic, co-curricular and community programming we offer. I also hope you will contact us for additional information or to arrange for a personal school tour. When you walk through the front doors, you will experience this community of leaders and learners firsthand.
I have enjoyed my 13 years at The York School, the last four serving as Head of School. My time here has been meaningful and rewarding because the members of this community are all so passionately committed to
The York School.
We look forward to sharing it with you.
Conor Jones
Head of School
