TFS teaches the curricula of France and Ontario through the framework established by the IB programs, creating an education that is singular in its excellence, scope and global perspective.
All three programs of the IB connect learning directly to students’ lives and to the world around them, and require students to develop and demonstrate their citizen skills.
The PYP Exhibit, the culminating activity of the PYP in Grade 5, asks groups of students to create their own unit of inquiry on a current world issue. They have to conduct research or interviews, come up with areas of concerns, identify possible solutions, take an action to alleviate the problem, and present all of this to an audience of their parents, teachers and peers.
In Grade 10 (Level III) students complete the MYP Personal Project. In addition to extensively demonstrating the skills and experience they acquired during their MYP years, students must create a product, maintain a process journal and produce a personal statement. These activities require personal inquiry, action and reflection on their chosen topics.
During the two diploma years of the IB, students engage in a component called Creativity, Action, Service (CAS). They are long‐term service team projects that take place over a minimum of four months, outside of TFS. Whether volunteering with Habitat for Humanity or in a long-term care facility, our students are having a positive impact on our community.
