Forging international partnerships for a global perspective

UTS offers its students international opportunities through our partnerships with Number 2 High School Affiliated with East China Normal University (EFZ) in Shanghai, Rhysensteen Gymnasium in Copenhagen, and Carl-Schurz-Schule in Frankfurt.

Maximum City

In 2019, UTS welcomed exchange partners from Carl-Schurz-Schule in Frankfurt in collaboration with the Goethe Institute and Maximum City. Maximum City works with schools, governments, and communities to deepen understanding of how to develop better cities. Their Global Urban Citizens Program, in partnership with the University of Toronto Schools (UTS) and other institutions, has worked with city builders from seven countries on solving the world’s most pressing urban problems.

Green Path

Number Two High School Affiliated with East China Normal University (HSEFZ) is a Green Path School. This is the 15th anniversary of the Green Path Program. The program was founded by Margaret Yan, Director of Asian Initiatives at University of Toronto Scarborough Campus (UTSC). This year 250 students were selected for admission to the University of Toronto from about forty highly ranked secondary schools across China. The students undertake a twelve-week transition support summer program at UTSC, living in residence. Green Path students are noted for their academic excellence.

International Educators

UTS hosts visiting educators from a number of countries, providing information about our school, Ontario education, and tours of classrooms. Visiting educators recently have been from China, Spain, and India.
