Quest Alternative Senior School is a unique educational institution within the Toronto District School Board that serves 68 students, divided into one class (34) of Grade 7s and one class (34) of Grade 8s. Quest was founded in 1983 by two teachers with a dream of creating authentic learning opportunities based on outdoor education and experiential learning. Quest has maintained that vision for the last 36 years while incorporating innovative pedagogy,  global competencies, and the cultivation of 21st century skills. Today, long-standing school traditions like our Winter Concert, Industrial Arts and EcoQuest mingle with technological skills like website creation, 3D printing and digital video editing. We hold high expectations for our students and ask them to be engaged, active members of our educational community taking pride of ownership in a two-year program in which they are our most valuable stakeholders. 

Quest Alternative Senior School is located at 25 Bain Avenue,
on the 3rd floor of Withrow Avenue Jr. Public School
