Message from the Director
Welcome to Town Centre Private SchoolsTM also known as TCPSTM. Founded in 1986, TCPS is a unique school offering a Montessori Pre-School program and an International Baccalaureate® (IB) World School for grades 1 to 12.
Now in our 31st year, TCPS has implemented IB in the Elementary and High School Divisions. Students who take the IB Programme excel in university studies and beyond. In today’s world with rapidly changing parameters, critical thinking, along with self-challenging habits, are a necessity and TCPS students will be able to rise to the challenges with confidence.
Town Centre Private Schools has attained the distinctive status of an authorized IB World School for the IB Middle Years Programme and the IB Diploma Programme. This is considered the “gold standard” in education and we are excited to be continuing this process for our Primary Years Programme. By attaining this goal TCPS will have the unique status of becoming the only 1 of 7 schools in Ontario, and 1 of 15 schools in Canada, to offer all 3 IB Programmes.
We have come a long way from our modest beginnings in 1986. One of the keys to our success has been the dedication of our teaching staff and administration. I would like to acknowledge their hard work and enthusiasm over the years. We have grown over the last 3 decades to become a reputable and respected educational institution and I look forward to our future together.
Mrs. Marianne Vanderlugt
