    Curriculum pace

     
    Accelerated
    The main curriculum accelerates beyond the pace of the provincial one; ALL students do the work of OLDER public-school peers in tangible and measurable ways. This accelerated pace is maintained by the teachers and school, (through textbook selection, topic selection, grading, assignment standards and expectations, etc).
     
    Standard-enriched
    Broadly-speaking, the main curriculum -- like that of most schools -- paces the provincially-outlined one. This pace is steady and set by the teachers and school. The curriculum might still be enriched in various ways: covering topics more in-depth and with more vigor than the provincial one, or covering a broader selection of topics.

     

    Academic culture

     
    Rigorous
    A school with a “rigorous” academic culture places a high value on academic performance, and expects their students to do the same. This does not mean the school is uncaring, unsupportive, or non-responsive -- far from it. A school can have a rigorous academic culture and still provide excellent individual support. It does mean, however, the school places a particular emphasis on performance -- seeking the best students and challenging them to the fullest extent -- relative to a normal baseline. High expectations and standards – and a challenging yet rewarding curriculum – are the common themes here. Keep in mind this classification is more relevant for the older grades: few Kindergarten classrooms, for example, would be called “rigorous”.

    Academic-based preschools and Kindergartens are the most structured of the different types, and have a strong emphasis on math and reading readiness skills. These programs aim to expose children to what early-elementary school is like. While time is still allotted to free play, much of the day is built around explicit lessons guided by the teacher. Classrooms often resemble play-based ones (with different stations set up around the room), but at an Academic program the teacher leads students through the stations directly, and ties these activities to a whole-class lesson or theme.

    Our Take

    Our Take

    TFS - CANADA'S INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL (WEST CAMPUS)

    The school celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2012, marking the end of an astonishing period of growth and development. The school really did start in a basement, moving from there into a range of branches throughout the GTA, in time consolidating onto the two campuses that the school occupies today. Schools don't grow that much, or that quickly, if they aren't servicing a specific need, and certainly that's true of TFS. The acronym stands for Toronto French School, which is the name that the school was founded with, though in time it was offering a lot more than the name suggested. Language remains an important part of the curriculum, though the culture of the school reaches beyond language. The environment is rich, varied, and supportive. The student body is culturally and academically diverse, all of which is encouraged through a robust bursary program.

    GLENLYON NORFOLK SCHOOL

    Glenlyon Norfolk School started its long life in 1913 as a girls school, the founders intending to establish something better, something more forward thinking, much like other girls’ schools that have a similar pedigree. Later, a boys school was established nearby, and in 1986 they combined to become the school, at least in broad outlines, as it exists today. In keeping with the initial vision, the school intends to be at the leading edge of instruction, continually evaluating what it offers and ensuring that it’s in keeping with what students will need for success at post-secondary studies and beyond. In 1996 it became an IB World School with the adoption of the Diploma Programme, adding the Middle Years Programme and Primary Years Programme in 2004 and 2007, respectively. With them, GNS became one of the first schools in the country to offer the full continuum. The tradition of evaluation and evolution continues today, in a very literal sense, with the school in the midst of an ambitious strategic plan, one intending to keep the school at the forefront of innovation while reflecting the values and ideals that have informed the life of the school for more than a century. The offering, rightly, is highly regarded, and serves as an example to other schools nationally. The ideal student is one who can thrive in a challenging, vibrant, dynamic learning environment.

    TFS - CANADA'S INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL (WEST CAMPUS)

    TFS' West Campus in Mississauga offers a rigorous bilingual education with an international perspective. Our students become individuals who reflect, citizens who act. Our close-knit community welcomes boys and girls from PK to Grade 7. No prior knowledge of French is required. We offer a rich array of sports and co-curriculars. After Grade 7, students continue their studies at the Toronto campus, using a complimentary TFS shuttle bus. (See TFS Toronto listing.)

    GLENLYON NORFOLK SCHOOL

    Each child holds our attention at Glenlyon Norfolk School, a Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12 coed independent day-school firmly rooted in the values of the International Baccalaureate (IB) and the Round Square. As one of only 5% of IB schools in Canada authorized to offer the full continuum of IB programmes, GNS is proud of its unique 'IB Advantage': a 21st-Century approach which educates the whole child and creates global thinkers. GNS offers Family Boarding options for students who are not residents of Victoria.

    Message

    Dr. Josep L. González is TFS’ Head of School. Dr. González brings to TFS exceptional academic and international experience. He holds a Ph.D. in English literature from the University of Oxford, and has been department head, and a language and literature professor and lecturer, for over two decades at prestigious schools and universities, including Eton College and the University of Oxford. With a passion for languages, he speaks French, English, Catalan, Spanish and Italian fluently.

    In his welcome message, he writes: “TFS holds a special place in history as the pioneer of French immersion education in Canada. Today, as a French and multilingual international school, we are in a unique position to empower our students to become accomplished individuals, as well as responsible citizens who consciously choose to make a positive difference in the world. In fact, that is precisely the sentiment expressed in our motto: Individuals who reflect, citizens who act.

    Our school has long been renowned for its excellent academics. In addition, our identity is deepened by ascribing to specific values – integrity, discernment, respect and engagement – that are lived by staff and nurtured in students every day. Ultimately, a TFS education is based on three major pillars: academic ambition, all-round development and an international perspective.

    This explains why our graduates are well-rounded, emotionally intelligent young men and women, who can balance their rights as individuals with their responsibilities as citizens.

    As a school that was founded to promote multilingualism as one of its core principles, we are particularly conscious that fluency in other languages gives TFS students a gateway to other cultures and different ways of understanding the world. Our families and staff are linguistically and culturally diverse, and this diversity strengthens us as a community.

    Our pupils have many opportunities to experience the power of language and gain intercultural competencies through a range of trips and exchanges abroad. Our international perspective is further reinforced by teaching the curricula of France and Ontario through the framework established by the IB programs.

    It is this layering of language, personal interaction, experiential journeys and varied academic programs that gives TFS students an international outlook and inspires in them a purposeful will to contribute to the progress of humanity.

    These are the ideals and beliefs that permeate our community, as we walk together in the same direction and share the conviction that we provide the best possible education for our children."

    The Glenlyon Norfolk School Board of Governors is excited to announce Mr. Chad Holtum as the new Head of School starting July 1, 2020. Mr. Holtum has been instrumental in the growth of the GNS community since 2013, including helping to shape our Family Boarding program and the ongoing WONDER campaign. 

    Mr. Holtum has a strong commitment to community, and that starts right in our own area. He encourages local students to join the school through the GNS Community Scholarships program, which grants entrance scholarships of up to $10,000 to new domestic students in Grades 8 to 12.

    “The GNS Community Scholarships are an excellent opportunity for students to be part of our school while gaining exceptional university preparation,” said Mr. Holtum. “We are excited to offer these scholarships and give students opportunities that will help support them throughout life.” 

    Mr. Holtum fully believes in the benefits of the GNS experience as his two sons and nephew are all students at the school. 

    “My favourite thing about GNS is our community,’ he said. “It’s our students, faculty and staff, alumni, parents, grandparents and friends of GNS that help with our continued success. We are very fortunate to have such a strong community.”  

    Previous to joining GNS, Mr. Holtum taught in the public school system before moving to work with independent schools including Queen Margaret’s and Shawnigan Lake School. We are excited for Mr. Holtum to continue as an advocate for Glenlyon Norfolk School and want to wish him a warm welcome as the new Head of School.

      Progressive (sometimes called "in- quiry-based") curricula attempt to place children's interests and ideas at the heart of the learning experience. Instead of lessons being driven by predetermined pathways, progressive curricula are often "emergent", with learning activities shaped by students' questions about the world. Instead of starting with academic concepts and then tying it to everyday experience, progressive methods begin with everyday experience and work back to an academic lesson. Teachers provide materials, experiences, tools and resources to help students investigate a topic or issue. Students are encouraged to explore, reflect on their findings, and discuss answers or solutions.

      Some private schools offer International Baccalaureate (IB) programming. The "Diploma Programme" is offered to students in the final two years of high school, while the "Primary Years Programme" (ages 3 to 12) and "Middle Years Programme" (ages 11 to 16) serve as preparation for the diploma program.

      From Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 1, TFS teaches the curricula of Ontario and France through the framework of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Organization. From the moment children join TFS, through Grade 1 (CP), they are instructed only in French. Children quickly embrace the language and are gently encouraged to increase their use of French during classroom activities.

      GLENLYON NORFOLK SCHOOL

      Our students are engaged in an enriched, values-based curriculum delivered by well qualified teachers with warmth, friendliness and expertise. The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme provides a fabulous framework of inquiry to develop strong foundation skills that allows personalized learning to be at the forefront. Pastoral care is an important part of school life for our learners as it allows all students to challenge themselves to be their very best in a safe and supportive environment. Nature school each week complements our rigorous academic programme, as does our waterfront location allowing students to engage with nature in a meaningful way.

    Please see our website: https://www.tfs.ca/admissions/application-process

    GLENLYON NORFOLK SCHOOL

    Application requirements include receiving a completed application form along with a $250 application fee and the two most recent report cards for the applying student. Older students must then complete the entrance exams. We also require the completion of a confidential student report from a current teacher. For international students, we also require copies of passports for both the student and his or her parents, as these are necessary for preparation of custodianship documents. Once these items are received, we perform an onsite or Skype interview. We also prefer, where possible, for the applying student to visit the school for a day.
