Would you take your kids to a school in a condo?


By: Russ Courtney

As the city grows vertically it seems only natural that Toronto schools would too, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that the Toronto District School Board is now considering putting classrooms in condos.

School officials tell the Toronto Star they are looking at an idea that could see students using lower floors in new condo developments to free up space.

In areas like Yonge and Eglinton TDSB staff say there are more students but nowhere to put them. Building new schools or re-opening closed ones are not viable options in the area and other similar areas in Toronto.

The students would have their own entrance to the building and ideally a fenced in playground.

The idea is far from a done deal, but if it moves ahead, new condo buildings could have classrooms by 2024.
