An innovator in education since its beginning, the school has always been keenly aware of the world it lives in; in the 1960s and 1970s, that meant students learned Russian in addition to French.
TFS has been recognized by the Ministry of Education of France since 1984.
In 1974, the school introduced English A and O levels for senior students, to benchmark their academic achievements.
Two years later, in 1976, TFS began teaching computer science.
Since then, the school introduced the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program, supplanting the A and O levels, and then made the program mandatory for its most senior students in 1995.
In 2013, TFS became authorized to teach the Primary Years Program and the Middle Years Program of the IB, making the school the only bilingual, full-continuum IB world school in Canada.
Now the school has reinvigorated its focus on nurturing its students as both individuals and citizens who have an international perspective and who will become active and positive influencers in our highly connected, complex world.
