Celebrating its 25th anniversary,The Toronto Heschel School is a hidden gem, offering a progressive Jewish education within a tight-knit, caring community. Abraham Joshua Heschel said, “Wonder is the root of all knowledge.” We aim to inspire a sense of awe and wonder in your children, and a life-llong love of learning. The school is inclusive and egalitarian, promoting mutual respect. Small acts of kindness and concern for others are the basis of interactions at our school. Heschel offers an award-winning, integrated curriculum built upon arts-based learning and Jewish culture and literacy. We teach for understanding, whereby students internalize concepts and learn to think creatively and critically. Bilingual kindergarten classes foster a high level of Hebrew competency. As the first Jewish Day School in Ontario to reach Platinum EcoSchool status, environmental stewardship is emphasized. Contact us to discover what a Heschel education could mean for your child!
