Montcrest School


Montcrest School is a co-educational community, small enough to honour the individual and big enough to provide an exceptional academic experience with balanced opportunities in leadership, the arts, and athletics. Our school challenges children to discover and acknowledge their own voices, so they can understand and make meaningful connections with the world. Located in the Broadview and Danforth area of Toronto, Montcrest School offers a challenging core curriculum through critical inquiry in a structured and nurturing environment. A dedicated faculty provides excellent instruction and individual attention in small classes. Our many outreach programs reflect the values of our Standing for Character Program: Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Compassion, and Courage. Smaller classes for children with learning disabilities are offered from Grades 2 to 8. Our broad aspiration is to be recognized as the leading elementary school community in Canada at bringing out the uniqueness of each child. Discover how your child could develop and thrive at Montcrest.

Principal's Message: When you arrive at Montcrest you will instantly feel a sense of family and community. Whether it is in the houses where we deliver our academic program, our natural play space, or the small classes, our focus is on knowing, supporting, and challenging each child.

We provide balanced opportunities in the arts, athletics, and leadership so that the uniqueness of each child is supported and they can, with confidence, find their own voices. The relationship between faculty and students is at the heart of the Montcrest experience. Our focus is to nurture intellectually curious and critical thinking students who are also responsible citizens. Our exceptional teaching faculty knows each child and asks as much of themselves as they ask of our students. Their commitment to the special gifts of each child allows our students to discover, develop, and thrive.

I hope that you enjoy your exploration of our website. As useful as the site may be, the best way to experience one of the only JK to 8 independent schools in Toronto is to come for a visit and spend time with us.

Warmest Regards,

Testimonials: Montcrest Parent:
We wanted to express our deepest gratitude to all of the dedicated, brilliant and inspiring staff at Montcrest for welcoming our family with open arms into your amazing community. Montcrest has been everything we hoped it would be and so very much more.

Montcrest is truly a special and unique school. We truly feel that our child has received the most comprehensive education in these last few months; from the engaging and challenging academics, to the inclusive and exciting sports teams and the meaningful and enriching co-curriculars. Every aspect and detail of school life has been rich with substance and experience.

Montcrest Parent:
My son is a new student this year, and I wanted to let you know he feels loved and safe in his new environment. When getting ready for school, he said, "I'm sooooooo excited." We asked what he was excited for, and he smiled and said, "I get to go to school today!" This brought tears to our eyes knowing that he was truly in the right place.

Montcrest Parent:
Your unique ability to honour each child's individuality and challenging them to realize their full potential is amazing.
