“So much has happened since those early days when the process of learning began in one-room log school houses and developed down through the years into today’s modern structures of learning. While it seems that everything has changed, in reality, nothing has changed. The development of the young mind tracing back to the very basic elements of reading, writing, and figuring remain the same today as it did one hundred years ago. The child, the teenager, the young adult emerges from the educational process ready to take his or her place as adults in the world of everyday life. Each student who passes through the halls of learning of the Toronto Public Schools is himself, a living example of the experience, devotion, and dedication of all those who have, over the many years, given of their lives to over a century of learning.” from 100 Years of Excellence.
