Fieldstone is a welcoming and inclusive community.
Fieldstone is a unique co-educational, non-denominational school where Canadian and International students are inspired to achieve great things. In our enriching and nurturing environment, Fieldstone students build self-esteem through academic, co-curricular and social successes. Our caring and patient approach ensures that each student is given the opportunity to become happy, productive and successful.
The school began in 1997 as a K-6 school of 8 students in the basement of a church in mid-town Toronto. Since that time, a group of passionate and committed professionals has provided excellence in academics and an exceptional school community to hundreds of students and their families. At present, Fieldstone King’s College School and Fieldstone Day School are the academic homes to over 300 students.
Fieldstone is now located on a spacious 6.4 acre campus in North Toronto. The 47,000 square foot building is equipped with spacious classrooms on three floors. Grades 9-12 classes use the third floor classrooms and science laboratories, as well as the arts studios, cafeteria, and gymnasium on the first floor.
Outside the building, our students enjoy large athletic fields, manicured gardens (we even have a student horticultural club), and a mini-amphitheater that can be used for classes in warmer weather.
We encourage you to visit the school to tour our campus in person.
Fieldstone prepares students to be global leaders.
Fieldstone is founded on a strong and positive belief in our students. Young people, very naturally, exhibit a powerful desire to be successful both socially and academically. It is our responsibility, as a school, to help guide, encourage, and support them to make that desire a reality. We achieve this goal by teaching an enriched curriculum in the context of a caring and supportive environment. At Fieldstone, we see not the students we meet but the adults they will become.
At Fieldstone, we have supportive and caring teachers.
