While the general standard of state education in Canada is high, parents have plenty of choice when it comes to education in Toronto. The city is home to a number of private international schools for families wanting their children to continue with their home country's curriculum.

Unlike Canadian public schools, where admissions are based on catchment zones, international schools aren't bound by such restrictions. Many also offer students the option of boarding, which gives expat parents a little more flexibility when deciding where to live. 

Below is a list of the some of the most prominent international schools in Toronto.
