Inglenook is a small, friendly, alternative community high school with a family-like atmosphere. It is housed in an historical building, in the heart of Corktown, in downtown Toronto. It is the oldest continually operated school in the Toronto District School Board . In 1994, Inglenook Community High School was named an exemplary school by the Canadian Education Association . We offer programming at the Academic, Applied, Open, Mixed, College, and University levels from Grades 10 to Grades 12.
Students can select from a wide range of interesting courses structured in an interdisciplinary format. Because of our location, teachers use the rich resources of the city, such as art galleries, museums, radio and TV stations, movie theatres, and a host of other educational sites. All courses invite active student participation, and both teachers and students find the often passionate debates in courses to be intellectually stimulating.
Our school is very community-focused: teachers, students, and parents are all involved in school decisions. Inglenook also offers a special program called Reach, which takes place every Wednesday afternoon. Each student is expected to volunteer in the community and relate this experience to one of their academic courses. Students can volunteer in schools, senior citizens' homes, the food bank, the Toronto Humane Society, Alias|wavefront , and an enormous number of other possibilities.
