IB Programs

The International Baccalaureate (IB) is a high-quality program of international education that spans Pre-Kindergarten all the way to university entrance.

Over 20 years ago, TFS was authorized to teach the Diploma Program of the International Baccalaureate, and was the first school in Toronto in which the program was mandatory.

TFS is authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization to teach the Primary Years Program (PYP) and the Middle Years Program (MYP) and to offer the IB Diploma Program (DP).

What makes these three programs so highly sought after?

More than the content of study itself, it is the approach the IB takes to learning that is unique. The IB propels students away from insular study inside a classroom alone. It demands active engagement in learning and ensures this learning is intrinsically linked to students' lives and the world.
