International Schools in Toronto

Expat parents moving to Toronto will be glad to know that the general standard of state education in Canada is high, and both permanent residents and those on work permits can enrol their children in state schools for free.

Many English-speaking expats in Toronto choose to send their children to either a good Canadian public school or private school because English is the first language in Ontario. However, for those wanting their children to continue education under the curriculum from their home country, there are a number of international schooling options available in Toronto. 

Unlike Canadian public schools where admissions are based on catchment zones, many international schools offer students the option of boarding, which gives expat parents a little more flexibility when deciding where to live. 

Below is a list of the most prominent international schools in Toronto.
