About Our School
RDS (The Rosedale Day School) is a co-ed, independent, K-8 school located in the heart of downtown Toronto. It is our belief that an outstanding educational experience originates with great teachers who inspire creativity and learning, who connect with and mentor each student, and who listen with care and compassion to harness their growth, confidence, and character in line with the core values of our school.
Through small class sizes, a talented faculty, forward-focused curriculum, and an individualized approach to learning, our aim is to be an inspired educational community that provides a solid foundation to adapt and excel confidently in a rapidly changing global environment.
