Are you looking for a really different public school experience? Alpha II Alternative School is a student-directed TDSB Senior and Secondary School. There are no tests, no grades, and no report cards. Students, in consultation with teachers and other community members, define their personal goals for education in creating portfolios of work that is meaningful to them. These portfolios become the body of work that defines student growth and exploration of ideas, revealing clearly each student's individual passions for learning.
It's all about choice in education--choice that you (and your parents) have been asking for, to best respond to your ways of learning. Since 2007, the Toronto District School Board has answered this request based on the successful philosophy first initiated over 35 years ago at ALPHA Alternative Elementary School, our sister school.
We encourage all unique individuals who are interested in being part of a Community based on consensus to apply to our school. Our aim is to support you to be successful in your areas of passion while at school, and once you leave our secondary program.
We welcome you to consider becoming an Alpha II community member.
