It is my pleasure to tell you a little bit about our Senior School. The Lycée and Collège years at TFS can be the most rigorous, but also most rewarding. It’s the culmination of many years spent together as a cohort (often since Pre-Kindergarten!), and the exciting time of our students readying themselves to go to university and pursue the program of their choice.
It takes a lot of work to get there — the IB Diploma years are definitely busy! But these years are also full of moments of friendship, self-awareness, and pursuing passions in academics and beyond. Their pursuit of top-tier competitive sports, enlightening arts offerings, meaningful service and cultural exchanges at home and abroad, are just the tip of the iceberg.
Coming from a francophone community in Saskatchewan, and having lived many years overseas at some exceptional schools, has made me a believer in international education, language-based schools and the immense opportunity that comes from pursuing the IB, along with the curricula of Ontario and France.
I am so proud of the teachers we have at the Senior School. They hail from Toronto, Quebec, and many parts of the world, including Latin America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Many have extensive international teaching experience, and they are all committed to putting students first. I am amazed at the amount of personal time the teachers spend with our students – ensuring they are supported, challenged and known as individuals.
Our team of educators are as much teachers as they are mentors. They facilitate many opportunities for our students to develop leadership, team-building and what we like to call citizenship skills.
Whether you came to TFS as a “lifer,” or you join the Senior School because you have a French background, you will find a good friend, a group of friends, for life. And these connections with peers and teachers will serve you well, at TFS, in university and far beyond.
