Welcome to TMS!

Founded in 1961, TMS has evolved into a leading independent school that combines the Montessori and International Baccalaureate (IB) frameworks to provide students the foundation for a life of goodness and excellence. Operating from two campuses, we bookend the Town of Richmond Hill with exceptional learning environments for children of all ages and stages in this diverse and accessible part of the GTA.

Up to Grade 6, the curriculum is based on the core premise of a Montessori education: that students need to drive their own learning. Using materials and processes that make abstract ideas concrete, students initiate their learning and can assess their own progress. This emphasis on the power – and responsibility – of a child produces learners who are self-reliant and self-confident.

Then, from Grade 7 onward, students are immersed in the International Baccalaureate program. Cultivating a full spectrum of human capabilities, the IB focuses on student-led inquiry, a balanced academic program and active citizenship. IB learners develop traits and skills essential for success in a complex and interconnected world, such as creative problem solving, open mindedness, commitment to others and the ability to adopt multiple perspectives.

The search for an independent school that is the right fit for your child can be overwhelming, so we encourage you to attend one of our Information Sessions or Open Houses to learn more about our approach to education. In addition to the scheduled sessions, campus tours can be arranged by appointment Monday through Friday between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm. Contact the Admissions Department to schedule a campus tour. Email admissions@tmsschool.ca to schedule a campus tour.

Thank you for choosing to discover more about TMS. We look forward to meeting you and supporting you through the admissions process.
