The pioneer of French immersion in Canada, TFS is Canada’s International School. The country’s largest independent school – serving students from age two to university entrance – TFS teaches the curricula of the Ministries of Education of France and Ontario within the framework of the International Baccalaureate. Co-educational and non-denominational, TFS develops critical thinkers who celebrate difference, transcend borders, and strive for the betterment of humankind. The West Campus in Mississauga is a cohesive, thriving academic community of over 200 students from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 7.

One of four divisional leaders, you will report to the Deputy Head, Teaching and Learning as well as the Deputy Head, Citizenship and Community. A member of the Head’s Council, you will make a meaningful contribution to the implementation of an academically ambitious educational philosophy and strategic plan – encouraging, preparing, and supporting the development of engaged, inquisitive, and active young citizens. You will respect and promote the unique culture of TFS and the continuous progress of students, and will partner with colleagues to harmonize programming and practice across TFS campuses, enabling a smooth transition to upper grades. Bilingual, with an international perspective, you are an exceptional educational leader who ideally understands the French and Ontario curricula as well as the IB (PYP and MYP). You have a successful track record of building your team’s capacity to maintain high standards of teaching and learning.

Excited by the possibilities of an intimate, innovative campus where teachers exercise multiple skills and everyone knows every student, you will continue the work of building a caring and cohesive culture in which students grow and thrive. With a profound desire to be part of TFS as a whole – you are the inspirational strategist, mentor, and tactician that every great Principal needs to be. This is an opportunity to join TFS’s remarkable team – whose excellence and vision are creating something truly extraordinary.
