The electronic translation service on the Toronto District School Board website is hosted by Google Translate, a third party service. The TDSB does not guarantee or warrant the reliability, accuracy or completeness of any translated information.

The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 100 languages, but does not capture all languages or dialects.

The basic translation goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material. Before you act on translated information, we encourage you to confirm any facts that are important to you or may affect any decisions you make.

The Toronto District School Board is committed to equity and community engagement, and by providing this tool, we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English.

Ryerson Community School

"Ryerson Community School...where you belong."


Egerton Ryerson, the founder of Ontario's public education system, founded Ryerson Community School in 1877.   Ryerson studied various education systems in the U.S., England, and Europe and combined the best of these to develop his own system in Ontario.  Today, Ryerson Community School is a vibrant and diverse K to 8 school, both culturally and linguistically. We are the 1999 recipients of the Ruth Atkinson Hindmarsh Award for excellence in community based programming. In 2008, Ryerson received the prestigious Anne Hope Award for our commitment to promoting social justice, human rights, and anti-racist education. We celebrated our 125th Anniversary Celebration in 2002.  Our motto is "Ryerson Community School...Where you belong."

Opening September 2012, The Downtown Vocal Music Academy (VMA) is housed in Ryerson Community School.  The DVMA helps shape our future musicians and artists.  This unique program in the TDSB engages students with a passion for music and performance.  Singing, creating and performing are at the core of the VMA for boys and girls with a passion for self expression through performance.  Students will experience music from around the world and learn about the musicians and music that have shaped our world, history and culture.
