Why First Nations School of Toronto (FNST)?

At First Nations School of Toronto (FNST), Indigenous ways of being, knowing, teaching and learning are at the center of our approach to education.

We teach the Ontario Curriculum while centering Indigenous knowledges, perspectives and cultures.

Our school currently serves students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8. In the 2017–18 school year, we are proud to be expanding into the secondary school grades. In September 2017, we will be welcoming our first class of Grade 9 students.

While a large base of the FNST student population is of Anishinaabe ancestry, we welcome children of all backgrounds.

Our Mission
To enable all students to reach high levels of achievement and well-being
and to acquire the knowledge, skills
and values they need to become responsible, contributing members of
a democratic and sustainable society.
