The school systems in Toronto are of the highest quality in the world. There are two publicly funded school streams covering Junior Kindergarden to High School, as well as a wide cross-section of private schools to meet a variety of educational expectations. The driving philosophy of the public system is a service model, with an imperative to meet the individual educational needs of each student in the system.
Beyond primary and secondary schools, the city hosts three fully credited Universities (University of Toronto, Ryerson and York University), a Creative University (Ontario College of Art and Design University), and four Provincial Colleges (Seneca, Humber, George Brown and Centennial). Individually and together, both reputation ally and in terms of the breadth of courses and fields of study, it’s an impressive range of choice.
