Our Take: Toronto District Christian High School
TDChristian was founded in 1960, and the school has grown considerably over the years. Throughout has been an abiding attention to stewardship within the school community and beyond. Service trips are a cornerstone of the curriculum, and that tone is set from the first week in Grade 9, with all students spending two days working with organizations supporting the city’s homeless population—TDChristian has partnerships with the Yonge Street Mission, Scott Mission, Habitat for Humanity, Church of the Redeemer, Good Shepherd Centre, St. Francis’ Table, and the Salvation Army. Of course that’s just one aspect of the program, though it’s telling of the approach taken within the school. The families that turn to the school often do so in an awareness of the character learning that is woven throughout the curricular and extracurricular programs. Despite the age of the school, all the facilities have been recently updated, including the integration of technology in the classroom. That process is continuing with a capital and development campaign that is currently underway. The ideal student is one who will thrive in an active, diverse, values-based learning environment.
What does learning at Toronto District Christian High School look like now?
Our small, connected community and caring teachers served us well as we learned from home. We start each day with an online assembly where we share devotions and share contributions like fun videos and presentations from our students and staff. We use Edsby, our class management platform, to post assignments, lessons, and teacher videos. Students and parents also use Edsby to directly connect with teachers. Many classes also use video conferencing for real-time instruction and connecting. In terms of hours spent per class, we exceeded the amount found in publicly funded schools. All of our students have Office 365 and the full Adobe suite included in tuition for use at home; we also loaned many school PCs and Macs to students who needed a computer for home. Our Resource department also mobilized to help students with learning needs, including running an online homework club twice per week.
