The Student School is one of Toronto’s many fascinating alternative secondary schools. Our school is based on the principles of participatory democracy and social equity; the school is kept alive by the involvement of its students. TSS provides a personal atmosphere where teachers and students work together in mutual respect.
TSS is unique in several ways; all our staff is “Safe and Positive Space” trained with Gender Based Violence Prevention through the school board. As a result TSS is the only school in the TDSB where the entire school space is deemed a “Safe and Positive Space”. TSS was the first secondary school in our quadrant of the TDSB to be certified a Platinum EcoSchool.
Students at TSS learn that the choices they make affect not only their lives, but the lives of others as well. We stress responsibility, and believe our students are deserving of it. At bi-monthly meetings, the student body attends a general council meeting to vote on upcoming issues facing TSS or the community. TSS’s students have a say in school affairs, be it a motion to support a grassroots movement, boycott an unethical corporation, or discuss students’ issues, our philosophy is to give TSS students the opportunity to be in control of their own education and, by extension, their lives.
The Student School is a TDSB Alternative Secondary School.
