Why Mabin?

The Mabin School has been recognized as Canada’s first independent Ashoka Changemaker School. Changemaker Schools exist around the world, and are exemplary at instilling the qualities of leadership, teamwork, problem-solving, and empathy.

Our progressive JK-6 school’s greatest advantages include:

  • dedicated, responsive teachers
  • challenging academics
  • an exceptional student-teacher ratio
  • a strong social-emotional curriculum
  • a deep sense of community

The Mabin School has an unparalleled team of passionate experts working together to give each student every opportunity to reach their full potential. The community size of 150 students is deliberate. At this size, every teacher knows every child, and can work closely with families to ensure that students’ academic and social needs are met. Our approach truly puts each child at the centre of their own education.

We invite you to take advantage of our individual tours where you can see our children engaged in their learning and have a chance to meet our exceptional teachers. Tailoring our tours allows us to share the practice and philosophy of the school, and create an opportunity to answer questions from parents of prospective students thoughtfully.

The Admissions Team

How to Apply


The first step in our process is to complete an online inquiry form. We will then contact you to answer any questions you may have, and to set up a personalized tour of the school.



Once we receive an inquiry, we will contact you to arrange a private tour. This visit allows each prospective family to see the school in action, meet some of our staff, and truly get a feel for our community.



After the tour, the formal application process begins. The non-refundable application fee is $150, which can be paid online. We encourage you to take a tour before applying.



Once we receive a completed application, applicants and their families are invited for an interview. We offer a unique and cozy interview process where the comfort of your child is foremost in our minds.
