Topic: School Leadership

The leadership at the school is exceptional. As a TMS parent, TMS alumna and university professor, I truly appreciate this. The Head of School, David Young, is a charismatic individual with a grand vision of focusing further developing the "I Am Known" vision and on building three mindsets: resilience, entrepreneurial thinking, and positivity that integrate into the TMS curriculum. As students move through different levels of the school, they explore ways to build resilience through risk taking; they learn to rework ideas to improve them; and they do this through a lens of positivity. David and his leadership team each year continue to challenge themselves in striving for new successes. They greet you in the hallways daily and are always interested in engaging in discussions about school culture, academics, and parent involvement. The past 2 years, there has been a conversation series "Discussions with the Head of School" that welcomes parents to attend and express ideas/successes/challenges/opportunities regarding the various topics selected for these talks. They have been held before school (in the early morning) or after work (later in the evening) to accommodate work schedules of the parents. I have attended several of these and loved being able to have conversations both with the administration/leadership team and other parents. This really has been invaluable as you see David and his team incorporating feedback into the TMS experience. There are multiple streams of communication from the leadership that allows parents and families to stay updated. In instances where issues arise, the leadership are keen to clearly communicate with the TMS community. In issues that arise in the classroom as a result of injury, teachers follow ministry procedures to document and communicate the injury to us.
