What is a Model School?

Model schools for Inner Cities logo

A Model School is one of over 150 inner city schools as determined by the Toronto District School Board’s (TDSB) Learning Opportunities Index (LOI).

The Model Schools for Inner Cities program is fundamentally rooted in a strength-based approach, aimed at increasing access, opportunities and achievement for all students. When students, teachers, families and communities work collaboratively to create positive change, student achievement, well-being, and engagement are increased. See the 10 Year Anniversary Report.
