As we all know, there are so many costs associated with sending a child to school for a year and every bit counts.
Why give to this cause?
JICS is a non-profit elementary school with a public purpose. It was named the world’s best lab school in 2016 by the International Association of Laboratory Schools. Founded in 1925, this University of Toronto laboratory is entirely focused on learning how children learn best, and its work reaches every child in the province of Ontario.
Diversity is central to the mission of our school, and JICS aims to represent Toronto's diversity, including its Indigenous and multi-ethnic dimensions. 54% of the students are members of a visible minority in Canada. Our greatest challenge is economic diversity. As such, we are currently seeking financial support to help build our tuition support fund, extending the reach of the school, and we need your help as we begin our journey to create an endowment fund of $5 million dollars.
