Director’s Message

Message from the Director

photo of TCPS Director, Mrs. VanderlugtWelcome to Town Centre Private Schools® also known as TCPS®.  Founded in 1986, TCPS is a unique school offering a Montessori Pre-School program and an Elementary and High International Baccalaureate® (IB) World School.

As we entered our 32nd year, we continued our journey with the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme implementation.  Students who take the IB Programme excel in university studies and beyond.  It is so gratifying to find an ideology that can take our Montessori foundations and build upon them in both the Elementary and High School Divisions. In today’s world with rapidly changing parameters, critical thinking along with self-challenging habits are a necessity, and TCPS students will be able to rise to the challenges with ease.

TCPS now has the distinction of having an acknowledged certification in the Diploma Programme (Grades 11 and 12), the Middle Years Programme (Grades 6 to 10) and this year we were certified for the Primary Years Programme (Preparatory to Grade 5) to earn the status of being an IB World Continuum School, providing our students with the tools to be active learners and communicators starting from the age of 4 years.

We have come a long way from our modest beginnings in 1986. One of the keys to our success has been the dedication of our teaching staff and administration. I would like to acknowledge their hard work and enthusiasm over the years. We have grown over the last 3 decades to become a reputable and respected educational institution and I look forward to our future together.

Mrs. Marianne Vanderlugt
