Private Elementary, Secondary and Montessori Schools

Children from private elementary schools, private secondary schools or Montessori schools are typically ahead of their co-students in university. They also find success in their careers more easily. A specially designed curriculum, child-centered environment and skilled teachers contribute to this personal, social and intellectual excellence.

Montessori and private schools in Toronto and all over Ontario have a distinct edge over the traditional education system because they…

  • Provide an intellectually stimulating environment that develops curiosity and enhances problem solving abilities
  • Include a well-balanced curriculum that gives equal importance to art, music and culture
  • Offer an accelerated pace that caters to the child’s interest and ability
  • Have experienced teachers who are trained to guide and mentor rather than lead
  • Employ a variety of specially designed materials that focus on hands-on learning
  • Encourage students to explore their potential rather than sit at a desk and listen to instruction
  • Support and encourage mixed groups where students learn easily from peers and older children
  • Instil self-discipline and proper work habits from an early age
  • Teach respect for one another and the environment
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Promote social responsibility and community involvement
    More and more parents are opting for private Montessori schools in Toronto and all over the world because of the personalized care, quality education and head start they provide students.
