Newcomers - Elementary and High School Students

Welcome to the TDSB! We are happy to welcome thousands of new students each year. Learn everything you need to know about getting started and attending a TDSB school.

To register an elementary school student (Kindergarten to Grade 8), please visit your local school directly. All high school students between the ages of 14-20 (Grades 9 and up) begin by visiting a Newcomer Reception Centre to have English language and mathematics skills assessed. This assessment will help schools offer the supports needed as students begin studying in Canada.

We are here to help make your transition into a TDSB school as smooth as possible. There are many supports and resources available to help you!
