TMS is a school where great things are happening. Both my husband and I are proud to be from families of entrepreneurs, and there are few schools in Canada that I have found that nurture students’ abilities to be free-thinking, independent, passionate, and intrinsically motivated from such a young age. As a parent, I truly appreciate that my daughter is known – not just by her teachers, but by her classmates, the school leaders and other parents. My daughter loves coming to school every single day. She constantly reminds us in our morning routine that we need to "leave soon, so I can go to school and see my teachers and friends". To fall in love with the environment the way she has will set a tone for the rest of her academic life. Students are encouraged to thrive in the school community and the staff demonstrate that by being kind, caring and supportive. In 14 years from now when she graduates from Grade 12, I know she will be a young woman who has benefitted from a school community that has instilled in her a deep sense of empathy, that has encouraged her to question and wonder, and to strive not just for success, but significance, which TMS defines as goodness and excellence. She will achieve all of this because she is known.
