For information or to discuss admission to The Dunblaine School, please call the principal, Charleen Pryke, at 416 483 9215 during school hours. Mrs. Pryke may also be reached via email, or you can fill in the form below to request further information.
Generally, applications are made for the following school year; however, admissions from September to June are accepted if space is available and placement of your child has been approved following interviews.
The Dunblaine School accepts students on an individualized basis, taking into account the programs being offered, the student’s abilities and needs, and the opportunity for progress in our school setting.
In order to enable each child to receive an individualized learning experience, your application involves the review of a psycho-educational assessment which must be obtained by a certified psychologist experienced with the LD population. To be current and useful, the documentation must have been completed within the last three years for children nine years and older.
We understand that the validity of IQ of children under the age of nine is uncertain and thus is not mandatory to this process, but can still be considered. The report should include:
A specific diagnosis of a learning disability based on comprehensive tests such as the Weschler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC), Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale (The Binet), Wide Range Achievement Test (WRAT) and the Woodcock.
Current scores for all tests
Recommendations for accommodations, including rationales
Relevant educational, developmental, and medical history
A clinical summary ruling out emotional problems, cultural/linguistic differences, visual, hearing or motor impairments, and/or intellectual delay.
Payment options are available for tuition fees, as are bursary opportunities. Further information regarding financial assistance is available here, and during the enrollment process.
