For Grades 8 (4e) to 12 (terminale), our unique program combines three curricula. As a result, our Grades 8 to 12 are called Levels, beginning with Level I at the Grade 8 age level and concluding with Level V in Grade 12.
To understand exactly where your child would fit if joining TFS after Grade 7 (5e), please contact our Admissions Department.
The Senior Curricula
From Level I through Level III, students continue to study within the Middle Years Program (MYP) of the IB, while also continuing to follow and meet the requirements of the curriculum of the Ministry of Education of Ontario.
The French national curriculum
The French national curriculum, which begins when students enter TFS, extends to the end of the collège level in France, or Grade 9 (Level II) at TFS. Students benefit from a curriculum allowing them not only to master French, but also learn about French culture and traditions, and gain a more international perspective.
Entering the Diploma Program
In Level IV and V, the last two years of high school at TFS, all students must undertake the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program. Acknowledged worldwide for its excellence and rigour, the program takes the form of a liberal arts course of study, meaning students must engage in a wide breadth of subjects, and no subject area can be excluded.
The IB Diploma provides an exceptional foundation for entering into university, and, in fact, since the program exceeds the requirements of a secondary school diploma, students are often offered advanced placement in courses at university.
Being part of the IB Diploma program also means fulfilling the Creativity, Action and Service (CAS) components. The CAS program requires students to be involved in creative pursuits, physical activities and community service over the two IB Diploma years. As well, students undertake a research paper called the Extended Essay and take the unique Theory of Knowledge course.
Concurrently, students also meet the requirements of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) program, and are awarded the OSSD as well as the IB Diploma when they graduate.
Distinctive to TFS, students have the opportunity to study for and achieve the IB’s bilingual Diploma, which has additional French-language requirements
