International Baccalaureate (IB) Programmes

Academic excellence and innovative educational practices prepare students to become global citizens


The first Jewish day school in Canada to offer the IB programmes

Our dynamic approach fosters curiosity, creativity, interdisciplinary connections and self-reflection. We value hands-on, experiential learning, welcoming big ideas that are grounded in real-world issues. Students are equipped with the ability to be nimble and adaptive, primed to think outside of the box. In the classroom, students work collaboratively with peers, reflecting on their process and assessing their own development.

The IB pedagogical framework and philosophy and our membership to CAIS (Canadian Accredited Independent Schools) reflect our commitment to academic excellence, continual improvement and strong standing in the independent school community.

Balance of Jewish and General Studies

The Leo Baeck Day School became an official International Baccalaureate World School in 2011. The school completed rigorous self-reflection and evaluation, staff training and curriculum development in line with the high standards of the International Baccalaureate Organization. Our program reflects this and is split into thirds, providing an exceptional balance of subject areas:

  • Language Arts and Social Studies
  • Math and Science
  • Hebrew and Judaic Studies


We offer a well-rounded, comprehensive program incorporating athletics, music, drama, art, technology, library, science and French (beginning in SK) along with a range of extra-curricular programs.

A unique approach to pedagogy

Our students develop the techniques and knowledge needed to become lifelong learners with a strong sense of identity.

Success & achievement

Success beyond Leo Baeck is evidenced by high academic performance in high school, and a legacy of alumni who are leaders and agents of social change.

Warm & nurturing community

The connections that teachers have with families are integral to the Leo Baeck experience, creating a trusting environment for students to flourish.

Our students are global thinkers & lifelong learners
