The University of Toronto Schools (UTS) (founded in 1910) is an independent private secondary school in downtown Toronto, Canada for academically-gifted students throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Year 1910 ( MCMX) was a Common year starting on Saturday (link will display calendar of the Gregorian calendar (or a Common year starting Secondary school is a term used to describe an educational Institution where the final stage of compulsory schooling known as Secondary education, takes Toronto (təˈrɒntoʊ colloquially pronounced or) is the largest city in Canada and is the provincial capital of Ontario
Most students enter in Grade 7 through a two-stage competitive examination. The first stage consists of a multiple choice exam, with approximately 1000 participating; those who pass this test in the top percentiles (usually 200 students) are invited back for a second written exam and an interview. Ultimately, 110 candidates are chosen from more than 300 applicants each year. On average, for the first year (F1) there are five classes each of which consists of 22 students. For admission in subsequent grade levels, applicants are admitted through a less formal process, albeit one just as rigorous. Candidates must be Canadian citizens or landed immigrants and may apply to enter either Grade 7 or the upper school (Grade 9 and above).
UTS is attended by students from grades 7 through 12, with 78 students per grade in classes graduating before 2001, 104 students per grade in classes graduating before 2009, and 110 in classes graduating thereafter.
UTS is well known for its enriched courses and specialized curriculum , which are designed to challenge and educate at a higher level than at most public and many independent schools. Because potential UTS candidates are required to pass a rigorous entrance examination to attend the school, its curriculum is accelerated on the assumption that its students assimilate information faster. For this reason several higher-grade subjects are taught at lower grade levels. For example, Grade 10 students can take an enriched version of Ontario’s Grade 11 courses in introductory physics, biology, and/or chemistry. As well, effort is made to enrich classes with extra material and more in-depth discussions.
UTS offers Advanced Placement courses, but does not have an International Baccalaureate program. The Advanced Placement Program is a program that offers college level courses at High schools across the United States and Canada. The International Baccalaureate (IB Diploma Programme (DP is an Educational programme examined in one of three languages ( English, French or Spanish In addition to the Ontario Secondary School Diploma, graduates earn a UTS Diploma, which signifies the completion of certain specialized courses, among them Latin and Romance of Antiquity, and attesting to an attainment level beyond the provincial standards. The Ontario Academic Credit or OAC ( French: Cour préuniversitaire de l'Ontario or CPO) was part of the curriculum(s codified by the Ontario
UTS's rate of student achievement is commensurate with its selective admissions policy, both in academics and in extracurricular activities. Virtually all UTS students go on to university following graduation : in 2004, the University of Toronto, McGill, Queen's, Waterloo, McMaster, and UBC were the most popular destinations, accounting for more than two-thirds of graduates; of the rest, a majority attended U.

UTS's grade level nomenclature differs from that used commonly in Ontario high schools. This nomenclature has varied somewhat over the many years, and is due in part to a curriculum whose courses do not fit neatly into the provincial grading system, and in part to what had until the elimination of Grade 13 in Ontario constituted a six-year course to seven grade levels. The grade level nomenclature, with rough equivalents, consists of:
This is now equivalent to those of other high schools, however, in some subjects, the whole of UTS is ahead a grade (e. g. , Grade 8 students attending UTS take Grade 10 History; such subjects include science and history).
Each student is placed in one of four Houses (Althouse, Cody, Crawford, and Lewis, all named after former Headmasters, with the exception of Cody, which was named after a former University of Toronto president); several "competitive" House events are held throughout the year. The house system is a traditional feature of British Schools and schools in ex- British colonies, similar to the collegiate system of a University The house system is only one facet of an unusually rich extracurricular life at UTS, however, and activities range from the school newspaper and yearbook – Cuspidor and Twig (along with its offshoot, the Twig Tape) – to champion sports teams and clubs, from chess to photography and from Investment Club to multiplayer gaming club. The Twig Tape is a Compilation album of original music created by the students of University of Toronto Schools in annual volumes since 1986 UTS students organise the annual Southern Ontario Model United Nations Assembly, the second-largest Model United Nations conference in Canada for high school students. Model United Nations (informally abbreviated as Model UN or MUN) is an academic simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate participants The school has in recent years been a two-time winner of the Reach for the Top National Trivia Championship and has won the Ontario Student Classics Conference for thirteen years running. Reach for the Top is a Canadian Game show in which teams of High school students participate in local provincial and eventually national
There are quite a variety of clubs within UTS. There are from Wargames club to Ping Pong to hip hop to soccer club and everything in between. Almost every student participates in at least one club and they have a great time. The clubs teach the students important skills in life such as getting along with peers.
There are several other events during the school year such as Arts and Music Week, classics conference and more. Arts and music week is a week when UTS students display their art work and show off their music skills. Either in their music class, in small bands, solo, or in an extra-curricular group. In my experience in the last two years arts and music week have been great. There were many good events such as the art work displayed in the UTS gym, battle of the bands where students form into small groups and play the song of their choice on stage in the auditorium, there is also fajita lunch which the student council organizes (informally know as STUD COW). The student council brings ingredients to make fajitas to sell while there is music being played by students. Also there is junior and senior music night when the senior classes and the junior music classes play their songs.
Classics conference is another important part to UTS culture and school year. Students are in m3 and up that take latin compete with other students in athletics, such as running, creative performances, such as skits and plays, and latin readings and more. Latin ( lingua Latīna, laˈtiːna is an Italic language, historically spoken in Latium and Ancient Rome.
An important feature of UTS's extracurricular life is its house system. Each beginning student is initiated, usually during the F1/S6 trip to Camp Couchiching, to one of four houses, each of which is represented by both a symbol and a colour. Lake Couchiching, from the Ojibwe goojijiing meaning "Inlet" is a small lake in southern Ontario separated from Lake Simcoe by a narrow Althouse's colour is red; its mascot and symbol is an alligator. Cody's symbol is a paw print and its colour is blue; its mascot is a cougar. Crawford's symbol is a sword and its colour is yellow; its mascot is a Golden Knight. Lewis's symbol is a Viking helmet and its colour is green; its mascot is a Viking.
Although most teachers are also a part of the house system, the system is run predominantly by students from the senior grades, from whom each house elects a Prefect, Deputy Prefect and Literary and Athletic Reps annually. Lewis, in addition, has the gonfaloniere, who promotes house spirit. The house system serves particularly to boost student spirit and school morale, and a number of events are held each year to this end which, though competitive, are designed to be fun. Points are awarded to each house based on participation and performance at each event, and Literary and Athletic Pennants -- the Academic Pennant no longer exists -- are awarded to the winning houses each year by summing up points in relevant events.
UTS was founded jointly by the province of Ontario and the University of Toronto in 1910 as a laboratory school of the Faculty of Education. Ontario (ɒnˈtɛrioʊ is a province located in the central part of Canada, the largest by population and second largest after Quebec This article is about the University of Toronto's St George Campus As originally conceived, UTS was to be a collection of several schools, at least one of which was to be for females.

In 1973, realizing that the rest of the school's original vision would never materialize, a decision was made to admit girls into the school. Year 1973 ( MCMLXXIII) was a Common year starting on Monday (link will display full calendar of the 1973 Gregorian calendar. This represented a key turning point in the school's history.
In April 1993, the New Democratic government of Ontario announced the withdrawal of public funding from the school, leading to a dramatic rise in tuition costs, and prompting the mobilization of all its constituencies to make up the loss.

UTS has remained a part of the University of Toronto's Faculty of Education and its successor, the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto (OISE/UT), until the beginning of 2004. This article is about the University of Toronto's St George Campus The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto is a teachers' college in Toronto Ontario. A controversial agreement signed with the University at that time established the school as an independent ancillary body within the University commonwealth. The school was threatened by the TDSB (Toronto District School Board) to change the daily schedule so that the number of hours of education could meet ministry requirements.
