About this school:

The York School offers a challenging and progressive independent school experience. Located on Yonge Street in the heart of midtown Toronto, our two campuses feature a marriage of contemporary and classic architecture, flexible classrooms and close proximity to the green spaces, landmarks and institutions of this world-leading city. Our inquiring, knowledgeable and caring students are engaged citizens of the world well before they graduate. We integrate the vigour and richness of the International Baccalaureate curriculum with innovative technology, thinking and practice. We create a real-world, hands-on learning environment. We immerse our JK-12 students in a co-ed, non-denominational setting that emphasizes equality, adaptability and social justice. And we create a local school with a global focus by exploring Toronto’s cultural diversity, offering service learning trips around the world, and through an engaged, international community of families and faculty. We are progressive, contemporary, international, urban & unique.

Principal's Message


Conor Jones, Head of School

The York School is an International Baccalaureate, coeducational, non-denominational school located in midtown Toronto. The International Baccalaureate curriculum, in simple terms, helps guide students in the junior grades to ask lots of questions, in the middle grades to question their understanding of the world, and in the senior grades to challenge themselves to be the very best version of themselves as they look towards the opportunities available at The York School and beyond.

We work hard to ensure all of our students embody our mission statement which is to “develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who are engaged citizens of the world.”

Please read more about our fantastic programming and opportunities on our website. I encourage you to make an appointment with our Admissions team to come in and experience The York School's inclusive, international and exceptional community.
