About Us

City School is located in a Ministry of Education Community Hub, sharing its building with a pre-school, daycare, elementary school, and community centre. In addition to large classrooms, a library and general meeting room/ rehearsal space, students have access to a gym, basketball court, dance studio, and cafe where they can buy freshly-made meals; the soup is superb!

Nearby Ireland Park, Norway Park, Billy Bishop Airport, and the Music Garden evoke the rich history of our neighbourhood, while the Martin Goodman Trail represents the present - City School is a pedestrian and bike-friendly community.

Our on-site staff consists of four teachers, an Educational Assistant and an Office Adminsitrator. We also have a part-time Social Worker and an Itinerant Special Education Resource Teacher (IRT), both of whom spend one day per week at the school. Our Curriculum Leader is our administrative liaison and Guidance Counselor.

Please note, City School  IS NOT A HOME SCHOOL - students living in the area are in the catchment of Central Technical Commerical School and Harbord Collegiate.  To gain admission to City School, a student has to go through an interview process.

Mission Statement

As a Platinum EcoSchool, City School’s mission is to ensure that youth engage critically in their own academic and personal growth by exploring socially relevant issues, examining diverse perspectives, and taking part in a friendly, nurturing and open community. We stress the importance of social justice, environmental awareness and informed citizenship, and provide students with a window on the world that is global and green.
