Differentiated curriculum delivery creates unlimited possibilities.
“Education should not be the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”
— W. B. Yeats
Learning happens naturally when it's experienced.
“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”
Experience in diverse classrooms lead to an understanding of the world.
“The wise man belongs to all countries, for the home of a great soul is the whole world.”
Keystone International Schools was established in 2012. Keystone follows the Ontario curriculum with a project-based, experiential approach to learning. Keystone serves both international and local high school students in grades 9 through 12 in the heart of 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.
Upon graduation, students will receive an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).
Learning doesn't only happen in class! There are over 25 student events organized throughout the school year.
Students are able to take selective courses to upgrade their grades for acceptance into their preferred post-secondary institutions.
