Welcome to York House School

At York House School, we are an inclusive and caring community guided by the values and principles inherent to our Mission and Vision to provide exceptional learning experiences for girls in preparation for a life of learning and leadership. As the tenth Head of School, I am proud to lead a diverse and highly qualified professional staff united around a common mission to challenge and inspire girls to develop the skills, competencies, and dispositions to shape a better world.

Since 1932, York House School has upheld its commitment of excellence for the education of young girls. As a leading independent girls’ school in Canada, we empower young girls to discover their passions, find their voice, and build their confidence to become the very best version of their unique selves.
Within a dynamic and state-of-the-art learning environment, we offer engaging learning experiences that empower girls to explore their passions, develop global competencies, and discover the world they live in. Through the exploration of real-world issues, students are invited to pose questions, understand diverse perspectives, seek solutions to problems, and encouraged to take action regarding issues that matter to them. In addition, our dedicated faculty focus on providing leadership opportunities through service learning experiences in our local and global communities.

True to our motto, “Not for Ourselves Alone”, our entire community works together to build a culture of care. People who visit our school quickly comment on the caring learning environment that exists and are truly inspired by the positive vibe amongst students and teachers. As a small school, we get to know each and every girl and their families because we believe in establishing a strong partnership with our parent community.

We welcome you to come and visit us to learn more about the exciting learning and leadership opportunities that exist for your daughter at York House School.

I look forward to meeting you at York House School.
