About The York School

Welcome to The York School

TYS students learn in an enlightened and innovative setting that reflects and embraces today's world's social and cultural realities. The York school offers a large-scale range of experiential learning opportunities for students to apply their learning outside of the classroom and build transformative experiences that let them stretch their thinking, explore new things, and make a difference themselves in others' lives. 


Head of School: Struan Robertson

The York School’s special academic program combines the world-renowned International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum with the Ontario curriculum.TYS mix of Canadian and international families allows students to make important connections and incorporate different perspectives in their daily interactions. The York School graduates have been accepted at over 145 national and international post-secondary institutions.

History:

In 1965, Barbara Goodwin-Zeibots founded The York School as a nursery school, recognizing the need for quality preschool education within a caring community.The Senior School was founded in 1995 with the computing of a Grade 9 class.
In September 2010, The York School opened a second campus at 1639 Yonge Street, which houses the Junior School (JK-Grade 5).

Mission:

To develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who are engaged citizens of the world.

TYS's mission is distinct among independent schools because it focuses on graduates' strengths rather than the school's features. The capacity for inquiry arises from curiosity, an inclination toward action, and an ability to adapt.
To be knowledgeable is to transform diverse ideas and experiences into integrated understanding.
Caring flows from empathy, compassion, and a genuine appreciation for the community.

A Culture of Innovation

According to IBM Global Business Services, Capitalizing on Complexity Insights from the Global Chief Executive Officer Summary, 2010: "Creativity is now regarded as the most important quality for the leaders of tomorrow".

At The York School, innovation is a mindset. TYS supports students to rethink the obvious, reinvent, find novel solutions — and provide training and opportunities to practice doing this each day.

The York School culture of innovation starts with teachers, all of whom are part of a professional learning community. Teachers meet weekly in small sessions to share new ideas, experiment with teaching approaches, and test new technologies. They employ design-thinking strategies to improve their professional development purposes while incorporating cutting-edge technologies into their teaching practices. As model risk-takers and innovators, teacher-leaders are ideally positioned to lead their students through creative learning challenges.
