School Life

Learning Environment

A school is made of more than just a philosophy and a curriculum – it’s made of classrooms, labs, libraries, and outdoor spaces.

That’s why we’ve put a lot of thought into the design of our school environment.  
 
Because the environment where our students learn has a significant impact on how and what they learn. From the moment you step into KCS, you get a feeling full of colour, richness, and a lust for life. The walls talk. Literally. And they say (in a kind but firm way) this is why and how you're going to learn, and what you will eventually take away.
 
We strive to create a learning environment that nurtures all of our students and their learning needs. Desks are arranged as needed, for collaboration, whole class dialogue, or individual focus. There is room for movement in the classroom and standing desks are available should a student choose to use one. Classrooms have wobble cushions, noise cancelling headphones, study carrels for greater focus, and horseshoe-shaped tables for group work. 
 
Our learning environment goes beyond our walls.  Our award-winning Outdoor Classroom (Toronto’s Best Natural Playgrounds) is a space where students can experience learning outside of the traditional classroom walls. Our living wall, green roof and generous natural light promote wellness and enhanced learning. 

Our learning environment, both within and beyond our walls, inspires our students to grow and thrive. By design, they come to know what matters in life, and when they graduate, they are inspired to continue their journey as life-long learners.
