Description About The Linden School
Welcome to The Linden School
The Linden School is an independent, all-girls school located 10 Rosehill Avenue Toronto, ON M4T 1G5.
Principal: Janice Gladstone
Linden’s approach to teaching is girl-centred, incorporating the most current research about how girls learn best throughout their development. The Linden School recognizes that every Linden student is unique. The Linden School teachers vary their lessons to reach all types of learners – visual, auditory and kinesthetic. At Linden, students learn to take ownership of their own learning experiences. Teachers are experts in their fields, who act as facilitators and coaches rather than the ultimate authority. Lectures from the front of the classroom are rare; instead, teachers encourage discussion, debate, and collaborative, hands-on activities.
The Linden School is Founded in 1993 by Diane Goudie and Eleanor Moore, Linden is the only school in Canada created to incorporate cutting-edge research on girls' educational needs, from primary to secondary school. In its development, The Linden School's pedagogy and philosophy were influenced by prominent educators and theorists working for women's equality and social change at that time. The Linden School is based on Carol Gilligan's concept of an “ethics of care," which entails a recognition that learning is not simply intellectual, but deeply relational.
Drama: Once a girl becomes comfortable onstage, she becomes even more confident using her voice in all areas of her life. At Linden, developing this comfort is the heart of the drama program.
Music: Linden’s music program teaches students not only to play music, but to analyze and appreciate it as well. The Linden School introduces students to a wide variety of genres, emphasizing theory as well as performance.
Visual Arts: Art classes at Linden encourage students to think of themselves both as artists and art critics. Girls have the opportunity to develop their skills in a variety of media, including drawing, painting, sculpture, photography and digital art.
