Toronto Prep School (TPS) is a Grade 7 to 12 coed preparatory day school located in Mid-Town Toronto. The school was founded in 2009 and is a chartered member of the Small Schools Athletic Federation (SSAF) and the Toronto District College Athletic Association (TDCAA).
Many schools talk about putting students first, but are too large to give students individual mentoring and support. That’s why TPS, with its small class sizes, variety of extracurricular activities, and excellent post-secondary placement rates, has become a top option for discerning students and parents. We focus on the individual: there are no uniforms, classes are small, and students benefit from one-on-one attention from their teachers. The maximum class size is 16 and the school’s student-teacher ratio is 1:9 — meaning nobody gets lost in the crowd.
A variety of course electives are an added bonus for TPS. We offer classes in Fashion Design, Art, Drama, Communication Technology, Media Arts and Computer Science in addition to all the core courses. This preparation provides students with the broad educational background and variety of problem solving skills they’ll need for their future studies. Students also benefit from a semestered curriculum, taking only four courses at a time. They balance their studies with extracurricular activities including competitive sports and fine arts.
Another TPS signature is their later start time: 10:00 a.m. Research shows later starts have positive effects on academic performance and students gain health benefits from extra sleep. Days at TPS are also structured so students can get extra help from their teachers at whatever time is best for them: in the morning before class starts, after school, or even on Saturdays.
Toronto Prep School works to sustain an environment where students of diverse backgrounds learn together in an atmosphere of acceptance, respect and appreciation for each other. We are committed to developing students who are confident and responsible and exhibit the values necessary to become effective communicators, informed and productive thinkers, self-directed learners, collaborative workers, skilled information processors and problem solvers.
