Young people in the GTA have choices when it comes where to attend high school. We have provided information on the school boards located where the U of T has campuses.
Toronto District School Board
In the Toronto District School Board (TDSB), students have access to a variety of schools, programs and courses. To find your local school, you can search on the TDSB website.
Options within Toronto’s schools include Indigenous education, Africentric programs, an LGBTQI2+ program, French programs, arts-based schools, athletics, STEM-focused schools and more.
