Principal's Message

Welcome to York Mills Collegiate Institute. The school is located on York Mills Road between Bayview and Leslie Avenues.

The school offers a wide range of curricular programs, including French Immersion, from grades 10-12. Grade 9 courses are not available at the school. With approximately ninety percent of our graduates applying to university, most courses are offered as academic in Grade 10 and University/College preparation in grades 11 and 12.

Our 1100 plus students and staff work together to create a learning environment that is clean, orderly, safe and secure. Over the years, York Mills C.I. has established a very fine reputation for academic achievement and for providing students with opportunities to participate and develop their leadership skills through their involvement in a variety of extracurricular activities.

I encourage you to browse this web-site to learn more about our school. Please see the new note on the Guidance Page and the news below.

A Few Notes from the Principal:
October 2, 2015

York Mills School Advisory Council (YMSAC)

Our first YMSAC meeting took place on Tuesday, September 22 at 7:00 p.m. in Titan Hall. We had a very good turnout. The School Advisory Council meetings provide a wonderful opportunity to learn about school life at York Mills. All parents and guardians are encouraged and welcomed to attend our next meeting on Tuesday, November 3 at 7:00 p.m. Hope to see you at the next meeting!

Grade 10 Curriculum Night

On Thursday, September 24 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., we held a Grade 10 Curriculum Night. Parents and students had an opportunity to learn about the Grade 10 academic program. Our Strings Ensemble led by Ms. Frensch and Mr. McMillan performed beautifully that evening. A special thanks to all the curriculum leaders and Grade 10 teachers who attended the evening.


On Friday, October 2 during lunch, the gymnasium was transformed into a Clubfest for students. Student representatives from over 35 clubs highlighted their activities. I was impressed by the organization of this event from all of the groups, and the tremendous school spirit! Please encourage your child to join a club this year.

Director’s Letter

A letter from the Director was sent to parents/guardians electronically this week through the central Board office. The letter contained information about the current CUPE job actions. A copy of this letter is attached.
