Elementary schools provide Kindergarten programs (for children aged 4 and 5) and programs for Grades 1 to Grade 8.
Placement in school is based on the address of the custodian or parent in the City of Toronto and is subject to availability of space and school. To identify a home school for student, two proof of address are required:
- Original current rental lease or property tax bill
- Original current utility bill (Hydro, Water, Gas or Cable) or home telephone bill or bank letter
In the Ontario education system an elementary student is placed in a grade according to age. The Toronto District School Board reserves the right to determine final school and grade placement.
Secondary schools offer programs from Grade 9 through to Grade 12. To receive an Ontario Secondary School Diploma, students need to complete at least 30 credits in secondary school (one credit is normally one course). Students planning to attend university can include the required six preparation courses in their senior level of studies to meet university entrance requirements.
There are 28 TDSB secondary schools currently accepting international students. Students may indicate their top three school preferences on the application form. Placement depends on space and programming. We do reserve the right to make the final decision regarding the student's placement. If no preference is indicated, the student will be placed in the most appropriate school.
