Reach for the Stars
Seneca School was originally built by the Metropolitan Toronto Association in 1967 to serve students from ages seven to twenty-one years of age. Currently, Seneca School provides a structured team approach using collaborative inquiry to support the achievement and well-being of every student, aged 4 to 12, who have developmental challenges along with their families.
