The Our Kids review of UTS: Experience Innovation

our take

UTS is remarkable for all kinds of reasons, including an alumni that boasts two Nobel Laureates, twenty Rhodes Scholars, eleven Olympians, and three ambassadors. In the century since it was founded, UTS weathered some interesting times, including student protests in the 1960s. (At one point a student presented the headmaster with a blank sheet of paper saying "this is a list of our demands.") For many years, the school was at the centre of the debates that would, in time, bring some important advances to public schooling in Canada, including the abolition of matriculation exams and a 4-year secondary school program. In that and in so much else, UTS has marched to the beat of its own drummer, charting an innovative path through everything it has done. That’s true of the summer programs as well. They are of a kind that only UTS could supply. The sessions are unique, and uniquely inspiring, and lead by experienced school faculty. Kids who take part will find themselves in a group of peers who share their perspectives, their curiosities, and in many cases, their academic inclinations. That’s a lot. And it’s fun, too, all taking place in the heart of the country’s most diverse metropolis, and within one of the country's foremost academic institutions.

Makeda Daley, University of Toronto Schools

UTS’ “Experience Innovation" programs provide a fresh approach to the March break and summer experience. They offer students and parents a unique opportunity to explore what can be accomplished in a short period of time through creative learning experiences that combine education and fun, for an innovative experience that is second to none.

Our dedicated Program Directors and Operations team work hard to make these experiences meaningful and enjoyable for all participants. All of our programs are run by UTS teachers in collaboration with our partners, including University of Toronto faculty and staff, and not for profit community organizations such as the Firefly Foundation. These partnerships open doors for participants to stretch themselves through inspired engagement.

If you’ve participated in one of our programs in the past, we look forward to welcoming you back! If you want to experience something that will stimulate and motivate you…look no further! We look forward to having you join us.
