Toronto International Baccalaureate schools

Find the top private schools in Toronto with the IB programme

There are some great International Baccalaureate schools in Toronto. This includes IB schools in downtown Toronto (such as the Annex and Bloor West), midtown (such as St. Clair West and Forest Hill), North York, Scarborough, Vaughan, Mississauga, Etobicoke, Markham, Thornhill, Richmond Hill, Newmarket, and Aurora.

The International Baccalaureate (IB) was first established as a two-year advanced secondary school program, the successful completion of which earned students the IB diploma. Then, as now, the curriculum requires students to complete a course of study in six core subject areas (language and literature, language acquisition, individuals and societies, sciences, math, and the arts), write an essay of up to 4000 words, and write standard, externally-assessed exams.

Students are also required to complete two formal projects and a minimum of 50 hours of community service. All requirements exceed those of high school diplomas offered by the provincial boards across Canada, including Ontario.

In the decades since it began, the IB program has been expanded to include the primary (PYP) and middle school grades (MYP), as well as a career program (CP) for students in the senior grades. All are intended to provide a unique, international take on core studies, while also providing a foundation for secondary and post-secondary instruction. The curriculum is intended to provide a well-rounded, high-quality, advanced course of study that delivers the core material, while challenging students to apply their knowledge and skills through collaboration, discussion, and communication.

Below, we list schools in Toronto and the GTA that offer the IB program. Find a Toronto IB school near you.
