THE CITY’S BEST SCHOOL ZONES
Where to find Toronto’s most successful students
It’s no surprise that U of T’s ’hood is a hub for education. Off-campus, there are excellent options for scholars-intraining, including Huron Street Junior Public School, Rosedale Day School and the University of Toronto Schools.
2 BAY STREET CORRIDOR
It turns out there are some perks to raising kids in a downtown condo: the relatively low number of kids equals smaller class sizes at highly ranked downtown public schools like Orde Street and St. Joseph’s.
3 BRIDLE PATHSUNNYBROOK-YORK MILLS
The city’s richest pocket has a plethora of academic options, both public (Denlow ranks in the top 10 per cent of Ontario schools) and private (the prestigious Crescent School, Crestwood and Seneca Hill).
4 HILLCREST VILLAGE
This quiet suburban cluster, bordered by the 401 and 404, produces some of the most brilliant public school students in the province, with institutions like Cliffwood and Cherokee scoring off the charts on EQAO tests.
In the city’s most bustling downtown hub, the schools are as plentiful as they are excellent. Highly ranked elementary options include Ogden and Kensington, with a few Montessori schools to boot.
