Keystone International Schools has established a High School (grades 9-12) in downtown Toronto, where students are prepared for post-secondary success. Universities expect students to think about what they learn: understand, analyze, formulate, investigate and propose solutions to non-routine problems. They are expected to be resourceful and connect their learning to real-life issues. They need to organize themselves and manage their time to meet deadlines. At Keystone Toronto, students follow the Ontario curriculum, while learning key self-management skills. Apart from the core subjects, students pick their electives based on their interest and potential career choices. Selection of electives is a process that involves the students, parents, teachers and guidance counselor.
International students are placed in carefully selected homestays; our student coordinator ensures that the students are integrated into the society and their host families by maintaining daily contact with the students and weekly contact with the families. Students are exposed to the Canadian culture, customs and values, easing the adaptation period.
Students explore the city, its landmarks, museums and science centers with organized school trips. They meet and collaborate with leaders from various companies, business owners, professionals, and university students during careers and civics courses.
