Newcomers – Elementary and High School Students
To register an elementary school student (Kindergarten to Grade 8), please visit your local school directly.
We are here to help make your transition into a TDSB school as smooth as possible. There are many supports and resources available to help you!
Students who reside within the City of Toronto have the right to attend a school which is designated to serve their residential address. The “Find Your School” section of the website identifies the designated schools for each residential address.
Students also have the opportunity to access schools outside of the school that is designated to serve their residential address by applying on optional attendance. Acceptance at these schools is subject to space availability and program suitability. The procedures, conditions and timelines relating to optional attendance are described in the Optional Attendance Policy and the Optional Attendance Operational Procedure.
Status for 2018-2019

Learn more about Optional Attendance, including definitions of the classifications, as well as links to full school listings.
