The most important lesson you’ll teach her is that learning never ends.

Join our community of global thinkers and innovators.

The most successful people in life have open minds. They have a thirst for knowledge. They are seekers of new challenges. They strive for more. They actively participate in shaping a better world.

As Toronto’s only all-girls, all-years IB World School, Branksome Hall nurtures a passion to explore the invisible world of the unknown in each of our students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12. We see the mind as a muscle that requires the constant exercise of curiosity to stay fit, to grow and to adapt in an ever-changing, uncertain and diverse world.
We believe our global approach to education cultivates an inquiring mind that is essential to more sophisticated problem-solving abilities and a richer, more meaningful life.
Our mission and vision drive our community of faculty and staff. Each and every day, they know Branksome is where they can do their best work and make a difference.

MISSION AND VISION

  • Mission – Each day, we challenge and inspire girls to love learning and to shape a better world.

  • Vision– To be the pre-eminent educational community of globally minded learners and leaders.
